I didn’t realize when I was heading in to see this movie that Gary Oldman was in it. I’m a long time big fan. As I was watching the film, at first I thought he was carrying the movie. The other actors weren’t performing on nearly the same level. He was overacting them on a massive scale. Sadly, this seemed to hurt the film more than help it, because it made the subpar acting quality of everyone else stand out more. If they had all be giving the same performance, I doubt I would have noticed anything.
Aside from that acting problem, the story was good. I liked the plot premise and the age old story of “the grass is always greener on the other side.” Some things didn’t add up or make sense at first, but by the end of the film it did, or at least came close enough satisfy me.
I wouldn’t add this to any must see lists, but if you are a fan of science fiction with a touch of romance, then you will likely enjoy this quaint little film.
