Beautifully shot. I saw the IMAX version and camera angles, scenery, the sense of space – just wow! Plot…nyah. Twist at end…s’ok. The ‘special’ dimension? GAK! Really?? Come on!

But worth seeing on as big a screen as you can manage. The robot is also awesome. You might not think so to start with but by about three quarters through, you want one.
References to 2001 Space Oddity are too obvious and some glaring problems with the plot – swivel office right next to the rocket engines? Really?

Overall a glorious watch with a few annoying gaffs that could have been easily edited in the script before it got to the camera.


Keep DVD?

Yes.

Watch if on TV?
Yes, if I had an evening to spare.

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Snog in the 5th dimension. Twanging things.
