    Anyone seen this yet? I just saw it and it was beautiful. Not only were the images of earth and space amazing, but the emotion that comes with asking what life is all about.....so much more than a space movie. I'm sure once we start to explore more space we will have to accept there will be accidents with human beings along the way.

    SpaceX came to mind a few times while watching. Could they have helped if pressed?

    I thought it was a great movie, amazing effects (you didn't notice them being 'effects' at all, but the ending was way too convenient. I'd still recommend it though.

    Fun movie, enjoyed it.

    You do have to ignore the glaring physics impossibilities, though. Switch off brain and enjoy.

    Enjoyed it as well. I couldn't get a GPS signal on my bike computer today and wondered if there was some disaster going on up in space!

    The effects were excellent, but for me the story/plot itself was extremely weak, bordering on silly. I recommend the 3D version if you go.

    Having seen the previews and reviews for this movie, I'm definitely interested in watching it now.

    I got dizzy just watching the trailer. If I saw that in 3D or IMAX, It'd not be a pretty sight. :)

    Saw it in IMAX 3D and it was amazing. The story is good overall but it is a visual hit as a movie.
