(This review may contain spoilers).
This movie was a lot more intense to watch than I was expecting. I really liked the relationship shown between Max and Jake. Even though there was clearly a lot of complications, it was really good to see how they interacted with each other.
There was a lot of action in this movie and it was really good to see that action take place on two different fronts. I did think that those in a position of power handled things badly, though.
It was strange to see Robert Sheehan in this, as I couldn’t help seeing him as Nathan from Misfits. It was a bit disappointing not to get more depth with him and some of the other characters on the space station.
I thought the concept of the satellites controlling the weather and stopping the extremes was a really good one and it was also good to see something that might well be possible in reality, if countries could work together.
There was a lot going on in this movie, but it was good that the main characters at least had relationships with other people and other things they cared about. I liked seeing Max with Sarah and Jake with his daughter.
I did think there were a few clichés in this movie and some of the science kind of went over my head. There were some quite clever aspects of this movie and I felt very engaged with the storyline and the characters.
All in all, I found this movie to be really entertaining to watch, with characters and a plot I truly cared about. I plan to watch this movie again in the future and probably buy it when it comes out on DVD – and it would be good to see a sequel, perhaps set in the future when Jake’s daughter is all grown up.
