Flashback to the films Interstellar and Gravity. This latest voyage into outer space places itself firmly between the two. It's not as sterile as the former and not nearly as entrancing as the latter. The entertainment value is steady, but once the premise is set, the storyline becomes predictable.

Shane Paul Neil
