“A team of explorers travel through a wormhole in an attempt to find a potentially habitable planet that will sustain humanity.”
So this will probably be one of my most difficult and polarizing review ever. On one hand this movie is made with so much scope and wonder and ambition, that its hard not to just be in awe of it. While at times the execution seems to not be up to par. So i say this movie is really hard to review, and that’s because of how divisive the script of this movie can be. So let me start with the good parts. This movie is breathtakingly beautiful, and is a master class in shooting and shot selection. The times when Nolan decides to lock the camera down to an object, and simply leave it there while the action happens, is a really immersive and realistic way to portray things. Secondly we get some really good acting performances from Mr alright alright alright, as well as Mrs taliban hunter. And those two characters as what simultaniously keep this movie together, and then seem to rip it apart some what. The biggest plot line truly in this movie, is the love and bond between father and daughter. It is truly evident and totally believable just how strong the connection here is, and it needs to be because the concept of love is a really big part of this movie as well. There is also a bit of a surprise appearance in this movie from a well known actor, and if you haven’t seen it yet, stay away from sites like imdb and just go and let it surprise you. Now I’m not going to discuss every plot point, since i like to keep these reviews spoiler free as possible, but i will say how the movie doesn’t work as best as i can without spoilers. So the marketing of this movie, did a really good job at keeping a lot about the movie hidden, so i will respect that, and it really does add to the experience. Now when we get to the last third of this movie, everything starts to go into a direction or a realm that WILL lose some viewers, and WILL divide opinions about this movie. Some will totally get and understand the concepts, and while many others will also understand them, many will not like them, and yet many will also just be turned off by them. So what is this movie? This a movie much more than space, but that still gives you all the space you could want and more. I definitely thing everyone should see this movie, and i think it will spark some great debate. Also you should see this movie on as big a screen as you can find, trust me.
Review Score : 8 out of 10
