Finally got the time to see the movie in the cinema and well... it's not the best. The acting is not good and the story is all over the place. While the action sequences are nice, I sometimes got confused what's going on in the shot.
But I was prepared. I knew about the weaknesses before I watched it. I wanted to see it because of the space ships and the space scenes.The space ships are absolutely gorgeous. Never have I seen anything like them. They are full of detail, almost baroque. The space scenes, the planets and nebulas are fantastic too but I expected to see more of them. There was the occasional establishing shot and later on more shots of jupiter but all in all far less than I wanted.
So, does this movie get my recommendation? If you aren't that interested in space art, a clear no. But who am I kidding? Why would you even read my journal if not because you love space?
To space artists and space enthusiasts I recommend to get the bluray once it is available. Preferably the 3D bluray, That way you can pause the movie and enjoy all the beautiful art. While I think that on the big screen it looks even better, having the ability to take your time wins here.
