This movie felt like a date with Sandra Bullock, the atmosphere throughout the date was dead, Sandra looked pale and showed little emotion apart from when she was talking about how depressing her own life was, moments of joy that I tried to take out of the date were filled with heavy breathing and emotional looks, mainly from her, I contemplated making my excuses early and leaving but Sandra insisted that even though the date had been really boring up until now, she in fact knew a story about a boring space girl saving herself, I insisted that the only thing that would her improve her story would be a quick death! … in the end I was praying for this ”date” to end, it just seemed to go on and on, the characters did nothing for me, I felt more for a slug I flushed down the toilet the previous week, only my story about the slug was much more interesting than this film ( Revenge of the killer slugs, coming soon – Summer 2014).
Apart from Bullocks constant panting the only other plus point was the special effects seen in space,
so if you like space special effects,
fill your boots.
First off a quick mention regarding Ed Harris, who seem’s to have aged like a two month old banana!
Known for his macho take no bull attitude,Ed looks like he weighs in at around five stone and is minutes away from a metal bed.

I know we all get old,but unless he is sick,he needs to start putting on a few pounds,I was alarmed as soon as he stepped onto the screen.
The story wasn’t all bad,I was interested from the off,It’s one of those how did we get to this moment movies,when the movie comes to its conclusion you are supposed to say,ahh,that was clever,so he did this because he was planning that…. and so on,only problem I had, it wasn’t that hard,or clever to pre plan his idea,in fact when I think about it,it was a pretty stupid plan,there are huge hole’s in the plot which this director just hopes you forget about and prefers to distract you with a nicely rounded off ending.
Big plus for this film,Elizabeth Banks,she had started her career playing the goofy gal in a few of Seth Rogan flicks but more recently she has showed her teeth for some serious role’s,proving once again in this movie that she can bite with the best of them.
