Approaching the Unknown (2016)

Viewing Dec '18 ///

After watching so many Sci-Fi films of late, this one totally misses the mark. It felt like the visual fx in deep space were simply to take your attention away from the plot holes - for instance, a space station somewhere in-between Earth and Mars goes fully unexplained, but the film does not fail to drill in the captain’s “water making machine”. With a concept so close to home, like a manned mission to Mars, I felt greatly unfulfilled that the actual technology that could be used to reach Mars was favoured lower than this novelty Sci-Fi technology. Moreover, why would NASA only send one person in a single spacecraft as large as it was? Not a good film.
