I really enjoyed this movie! It had a solid mix of real science along with a better story than most movies.
One aspect I enjoyed was that the characters didn’t spend excessive time explaining everything that occurred to the audience. The doctor, played by Anna Kendrick, makes a wrist brace for the crew commander. She does this using a 3D printer, it seems, but there’s no need to explain what’s going on to the audience.
In a similar vein, the crew all act like experts, well trained astronauts. They all understand how their ship works, they all have a good understanding of what the problems are. Contrast this to the movie Gravity, where Sandra Bullock’s character spends a lot of time confused surprised by things, meaning she has to be “saved” by the experienced astronaut, George Clooney.
Plus, I love a movie with good Aussie actors. ?
