Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
One of my favorite movies of all time! Makes you think, and its full of suspense! Exciting movie!
Undoubtedly one of Nolan's finest films, and a great storyline along with the picture
This movie reminded me of a better one called "Contact" (1997) in all the good ways.It starts fairly interesting with a speech about modern society and it's posture about science, information and our final toughts on what's pretty much the dawn of the planet. I also tought that the dust idea was smart and original, instead of using something like a political insurrection, zombies or a meteor strike. It was just as scary as it could be, slow, methodical and unescapable.Then the actual movie starts.It turns out there is a wormhole in deep space and NASA decides to send three actually competent people and a lady who has seen too many rom coms that somehow ended up working at NASA and sent out in a mission that decides the fate of mankind.
Maybe with the right choice-making or should I say a better writing, that could be interesting. Since we would need the sentimental side of mankind to build a new society right?
Well, this lady, a scientist, has the belief that love is the only power in the universe able to trascend time and space itself. A noble and poetic idea if you ask me, however, all the desitions the crew makes, revolve around not making this lady cry so then we can blame her and feel pity for her being wrong.Right after that, holy goodnes effin' gracious, the lady was right, love DOES trascend space and time, and mankind is saved because the main lead loves his daughter and is able to send her a mathematical equation from another dimension.
I will give you a second and I want you to read that out loud, and then read again all those reviews that say "scientifically accurate"
Yeah, that's what I tought.Is a pretty looking movie with some interesting messages that ultimately falls flat on it's premise due to a poor writing choice. Almost looks like it was an excetutive desition. Shame.
I see a lot of high scores for this movie and I am not exactly sure why that would be the case.
I would like to state that I rate Nolans work very highly but, as is the case with all movies, they should be judged on its own merit.
It is a good movie with an interesting and unique concept and is to be watched intensely to ensure you pick up on the subtle elements that have a bearing on the story. As to miss one element could result in a loss of understanding later on which could ruin the experience Nolan is trying to create.
I did find this film was unnecessarily long and drawn out and the dialogue flat and did not help with creating an atmosphere that was going to get me hooked, for these reasons the highest score i could give it is 6.
