Pity about the terrible schmaltzy script they introduce somewhere after the halfway mark, which just robs it of being a classic, but other than that, truly amazing, and definitely a must-see. The first film I’ve seen where the 3D felt necessary and immersive rather than pretty but pointless.
Thought the story was repetitive…get to shuttle, get to Russian station and read manual, get to Chinese station and read manual… Just one idea, tediously replayed.
B movie dialogue and poor acting.
People walked out of the cinema. The most common word in the foyer after the screening was ‘rubbish’.
Tough crowd in Wessex.
'Twas ever thus. See, for example, Tess of the Durbervilles and The Mayor of Casterbridge.
