I think No redeeming qualities best sums up how I feel about this movie. I guess Adam Driver was as good as expected, and the little girl was just fine. But the story… What a pile of excrement.
It would be easier to list the few things this movie gets right about science than how many things they got wrong. Everything from astronomy to biology to animal behavior. They didn’t have a clue.
As bad as the science is in this movie, the writing is even worse. I can’t believe they spilled the beans of the plot twist when I saw the first movie trailer. My only thought was, “Well this could have been really shocking to find out if they didn’t spill it right off the bat. And just in case you managed to miss all the movie trailers and still chose to see this movie then they spoil the only cool thing in the first one minute.
Spoilers galore below
Here are some of the scientific errors I noticed.
Predators don’t attack animals that are bigger than themselves unless they attack in packs. Also, predators are actually extremely cautious in attacking anything. Even a slightly wounded predator may starve to death before it can heal.
Asteroids don’t come in swarms like that. If there were a large asteroid, like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs, that was surrounded by a bunch of smaller asteroids then over the span of billions of years the small ones will all merge with the larger one due to gravity.
Asteroid belts have a lot of asteroids, but even more space. It takes spacecraft months to travel from one asteroid to the next. They don’t come in dense storms. The rings of Saturn aren’t as dense as the asteroid belt in this movie.
About The Peetimes: Even though this is a short movie I found 2 good Peetimes, and one emergency option for you. I would recommend the second Peetime over the others.
