Stunningly Gorgeous, CRAP storytelling

The visuals are stunning. You walk out of this movie and literally feel like your phone could fall up (I am seriously not kidding about that, it's almost nauseating). Getting used to the gravity difference is also a great mind boggle. And just the skies and landscapes and the colorful atmospheres are just beautifully expressed visually. But warn you the story is crap and awful and could definitely use a HUGE do over. Half of it didn't make sense, the other half was corny and stupid. I'd give the story telling zero stars if I could. However the only reason I'd still say go see this is for the visuals. And that moment when you stand up afterwards and feel like all your popcorn should be falling to the ceiling.

Get it from the library

The film was disappointing and could have been 45 minutes shorter. The characters were shallow and undeveloped, and the plot was thin. The color of the film was annoying too. It had a 3-D quality without being a 3-D film. I'm glad I checked it out from the library and didn't see it in the theater.

Fun imaginative concept

My husband and I previewed it for appropriateness and had no issue. It held our interest, and even if it was scientifically implausible it was a fun, unique story concept. We will let our teens watch it without reservation, and may even let the 10yo watch. Its not brilliant, but it is entertaining.
