I watch this film from time to time purely because of the relationship between Liv Tyler’s character and Ben Affleck. Their love for each other in this film is so real and their father’s initial disdain turned acceptance of his daughter and her new lover, is nothing short of admirable. A great space expedition that goes wrong and forces the astronauts to think on their feets about what is important in life.
The idea of this movie is pretty basic, and the execution of the film does not add enough to the basic idea to make it a worthwhile movie. So many films around natural disasters rely on peoples' horror at the realness of the event, and this feels like it is falling into the same trap.
