7/10 Despite the film’s poster shouting “Pretty People In Space!” this film surprised me. The first two thirds of the film were very strong in establishing the characters and their plight. The production value of the ship was inventive, this actually has one of the top five best film scores of the year and the visual effects were beautiful. My biggest problems however lie at the end of the film. First off, the ending felt very Hollywood cliché and uninspired/by the numbers. I would have loved to have seen them take it in a more ballsy direction. Also, there are a few eye rolling coincidences and they completely waste the talents of Andy Garcia by literally giving him 20 seconds of screen time. Despite the ending letting me down a bit, this is a film worth watching for the chemistry of Pratt and Lawrence and the aforementioned high production values and entertainment from start to finish with solid pacing.
