This drama/science-fiction film combines classic Hollywood stories with a typical forbidden romance. While flying through space, Aurora and Jim wake up decades too early and find themselves alone on the ship full of thousands of sleeping people. This leads to them falling in love (like any other time that a man and a woman are left alone according to movies) until they realize that the ship is in danger. I personally found the movie to be very dramatic which took away from what it could have been. I was disappointed in this film given the reputations that the leading actors Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt have, and found their performances to be unusually lackluster. I would rate this movie a generous 2.5/5 stars. @THe_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I enjoyed the movie. It was much better than I was expecting. Had my full attention. Jennifer Lawrence is always good. A nice love story in space.

Wow, Amazing. Stunning visuals and a script that flows from start to finish. One of the best science fiction movies ever made. Five stars.

I enjoyed this futurist, creative spaceship science fiction story. Good acting of Jennifer Lawrence. Worthwhile to take time to watch.

Spaceship = (earth) our bodies , dying , unpredictable, stranded in them, alone..

Main charachter is awakened by the ship (higher power) to help solve the damage and problems, (he is a mechanic) ends up saving 5,000 passengers and 200 crew members.

Story: journey, travel, escape, new beginnings, unhappy where we are, (here and now) love, trust, selfishness, giving your life for the one you love (real love)
Finding peace, joy and acceptance in each moment
Learning to enjoy the person you are with, stop running, searching, trying to get somewhere better..

Simple story - titantic, sinking ship
Co-incidence or higher power in charge
Self sacrafice - highest form of love

Both charachters finally discover the meaning of life, living and what love really is. Wanting the best for someone else, even at the expence of our own desires.

We are alone in life, until we truly become vulnerable and trust someone completely, love someone so much we are willing to give up our life for their happiness. They never allow that because they love us the same way.

Sacrificing self to serve others.

Very phrophetic. Even better the more times viewed.
Artistic expansive visuals, character and emotion driven.

Mirrors everyone's life.
Excellent

I love both these actors and was expecting more. It's basically a sweet "futuristic" love story. Not one of my favorites.

"2 Thumbs Up!"...
An original, BEAUTIFUL, simple/sexy and very ROMANTIC film which exceeded my expectations... reminded me somewhat of the first 'Superman', flick but set in a futuristic time ride without the evil villains and heavy violence or gore - Neither being cheap, trashy nor sleazy at all and made without any vulgar language: very beautifully made and SUBTLY, 'SEXY'. They had ONLY 4 main characters :) LOL, in the whole movie: IT WORKS - they knew what they were doing since they pulled it off! Amazing. :) Its on my mind.

They were both good, attractive and physically fit actors; I liked what Aurora (Jennifer L.), said at the very end: living for the present moment. See, she found true love with him later on, and risked her own life to save him: so she did NOT take the option of moving back into time to sleep out the balance of her journey to the other side/realm . A true LOVE STORY. Its really worth watching, again , even.
p.s... I am a fussy and opinionated, viewer.
;)

. A large spaceship moving along. Enters asteroid (cloud?) with out alerting crew! It's zapping force field happily does its thing but one gets through, causing a power drop that causes one hibernation bed to stop & wakes passenger Jim. He goes looking for someone in charge. Briefed by Hologram, on spaceship's destination to planet colony, a setup by Home-planets Ltd.

. Very oddly, there are no large red levers labeled "Pull in Emergency", to have system wake emergency crew to help anyone out. An obvious design flaw! Perhaps the designers were told by their statistician the chances of such being needed were 10 to power -1,000,000,000 & therefore not worth the 0.01% extra on the price of the spaceship. Jim uses large messaging device to tell Hp his plight. It displays a reply will take (75?) years.

. More oddly, despite crew & passengers all being in hibernation, the fully automated restaurant & a great many shops are all open!? Jim befriends (after a style) an algorithm driven android barkeep, upgrades himself (via break in) to King Class, plush suet. Takes up boozing. Space walks, once while very drunk & forgetting to tether to the ship! He looks very much to be Lost in Space but fortunately, the algorithm driven android barkeep is able to prevail upon an algorithm driven automated sweeping unit to go & sweep Jim back in.

. He decides to see what he can do for himself & reads up the operating manuals of the hibernation units, among other things. Learns these can't initiate hibernation - has to be done by another m/c. He decides to wake another passenger, Aurora. They enjoy a dinner date, followed by space walk - under the watchful camera of the algorithm driven automated sweeping unit.

. Aurora then gets really angry with Jim. All is not lost, however. The Electrostatic Discharge from the asteroid that got through the zapper force field has been wandering around the spaceship, upsetting systems & causing them to dysfunction. Again, none of them execute the algorithm to wake & ALERT THE CREW ! ! Perhaps this was cut, also, to save 0.01% extra on the price of the spaceship! Again, on the advice of said Statistician?!

. More systems fail. Aurora finds herself trapped in a floating big ball of water, when it floats up (or down?) from the pool.

. Hopefully, Jim & Aurora don't have to flag down any Alien Ships to get help. Especially that one that carried the Alien Eggs onto that colonized planet - then went on to give Ripley so much TROUBLE. Well, I guess I better quit here, with out issuing any spoilers. AT least I didn't have to intervene to stop anyone being stabbed. Hopefully to - this wont take 75 years to reach you guys.
