Pretty decent start - six people thrown into a tank (think Big Brother), and are left to fend for themselves whilst governmental figurehead tries to push the crew to their limits, with dire consequences. Standard story really, jazzed up with a bit of sci-fi. The actors must not have seen the set beforehand as it looks like it was made from plywood and glue. The CGI is like a special one-hour episode of X-Files (1993), and the sound mixing is quite good. We see most of the deterioration through dialogue and plot, the characters themselves do not develop past their lines and whilst one or two actors do a good job of acting insane, the film's lacklustre pacing gives it a very cheap feel. If you are a sci-fi fan, this may tickle your ivories, but for the general viewer - go watch Big Brother.
Basically everything what might be is wrong with this picture. Any in-depth analysis would be an undeserved flatter. 1. The premise is hard to define if there is any. 2. The plot stumbles, stutters and staggers with no rhyme nor reason. 3. The acting is horrendously incompetent. 4. Music there is none - just noises. 5. The resolution does not resolve anything and tends to the incomprehensible. One may get to like however, the scene where a gangrenous leg is impromptu amputated by means of an electric non-surgical knife. But this belongs rather to WRONG TURN series than to sci-fi genre.
An interesting take on a space movie - being not really a space movie. Plot holes were wayyy too obvious and the flash forwards although good attempts at making the storyline believable, still weren't. Using more logic in the writing/making of this movie would have done wonders. Guessing this was done on a small budget and it did well using that. Some legit scenes which were emotional and moving.
This film doesn't show anything new, the premise has been done many times (what isolation can do to people)....and the acting in some scenes felt forced and a bit sophomoric but I was interested enough to make it thru the whole movie without falling asleep or barfing. Id say it is way better then a score of 2-5 which is what I usually score independent, obviously terrible, awful movies, in which even high school aged children could produce something equally as entertaining. Id rate this one a good strong 6.5....but scored 7 to give this movie a chance for those people who can appreciate it for what it is. There is some decent acting and some interesting moments. There are certainly many many more movies out there considerably more atrocious and a waste of time, than this one. Id recommend it to those a bit older, who are not in need of constant action or other types of stimulation to be engaged in a movie. And who doesn't mind not having very deep intellectual character studies. But a decently produced easy goes it very tame thriller.
