Honestly, I dunno what I was expecting. It was also one of the longest movies I've gone too. Some critics say its the best work of Jonathan and Christopher Nolan while others might not think so.
As with any good writer or director they want to put it out there what the audience will take and enjoy. And sometimes...go as far as beyond belief..just to see if they'll buy it.
The cast was wonderful. It was great to see Mackenzie Foy in the role of young Murphy. I was so afraid her acting career might hit a nose dive after TWILIGHT, but she's showing she's a wonderful actress.
Still we see a world that is dying. Sort of. I mean, those fields they showed looked pretty productive, but the theory is..the need to find another planet to move on. This takes a lot of thought, and I gotta say I didn't have the attention span to let it all sink in.
Anyway, some people persuade McConaughey's character to pilot this far off space travel to the black hole. This..comes in GRAVITY and well..TIME TRAVEL.
The thing is..I guess I was expecting more interesting planets out there. Maybe even some aliens. None of that comes to play. Instead they wonder off, get in some tight spots which you know..is like an hour or so..while back home..life goes on and well..everyone gets old.
In some ways, the movie was predictable. In other ways..it went places I least expected.
This movie is for the space lover. And for those who love this director and writers work, too.
STORYLINE: In the near future, Earth has been devastated by drought and famine, causing a scarcity in food and extreme changes in climate.
