Rating: 2.5/4 -- It remains cool, competent, engaging within a narrow realm ... but its unknown realm never explodes into anything remarkable. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Painfully dull and boring movie. This science fiction movie does everything but serve as a relevant take on the genre. [Full review in Spanish]. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- It falls on the velvety-voiced Strong himself, much like his character, to salvage the mission and plow through the overly philosophical dialogue. Full Review

In its own compact, budget-conscious way, it's quite a stirring if low-key journey. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Credit Rosenberg for tackling the big ideas. If he bit off a little more than he can chew, so be it. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- Claustrophobic space films certainly don't have to be funny, but writer/director Mark Elijah Rosenberg fails to convey any real psychological chills either with this portrait of an obsessive adventurer banging away at his imperfect machine. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- There's value in watching a man come face-to-face with the triviality of his own existence, and see it as an opportunity for greater exploration. Full Review

Description by

Captain William D. Stanaforth (Mark Strong) is on a one-way solo mission, taking humanity's first steps toward colonizing Mars. Although the entire world is watching him, he is completely alone in a dark and distant sea of stars. Stanaforth rockets bravely through space facing insurmountable odds, but as the journey takes a toll on his life-sustaining systems, he is forced to make impossible choices that threaten his sanity, mission and very existence.
