It's OK
3 December 2004 | by ian-woollardSee all my reviews

The story is set in space, in a type of space habitat called a 'Stanford Torus'. This mini-world is endangered due to lack of resources; a dangerous mission is undertaken to try to recover water from a distant comet...

I liked the details about living in space, it's kind of like a short version of 'Silent Running', only more realistic.

The film is not very long, and the story is not exactly complex, but I thought it was technically well done, as did the people who saw it with me. It succeeds at a technical and an emotional level- you really empathize with the little girl who stars in it.

It's shown in 3D, on the wide-wide screen IMAX. The 3D and IMAX certainly worked, but it was a bit tiring- I think a longer movie would have been too much.

While it's certainly not Lord Of The Rings, it's worth a look.

All I can say, if the other reviewers thought that this was the worst film ever, they can't have seen many films. There are far, far worse films than this out there.
