Space is WIICCKKKKED COOL GUY! Matt Damon knocked this flick out thaahhhh pahhhhhk!
Really though, I've been so excited to see this movie since the preview came out early this year. I'm a sucker for "realistic" space movies, and this was right up there...blew Interstellar out of the water in terms of making space exploration cool (and so little of it took place in space!)
Matt Damon was phenomenal in it...he carried the movie as he should have, and he was totally believable as a astro-botanist! The story was clever, smart, funny and very VERY intense at times! It also felt very complete at the end...they told a complete story, and as silly as that sounds, it's something people fail at very badly lately. I left the theater feeling very satisfied with the way the story played out and ended!
It's long as HELL! So don't go to a late show on this...it's just a hair over 2 hours, but feels closer to 3 hours...but you'll be interested the entire time, even when it's in the slow grind of the story.
Absolutely loved it! A definite suggestion from me!
