Incoherent and Unexciting,
This review is from: Another Earth [DVD] (DVD)
This film is a very slow film, and very unexciting. I find it quite frustrating the way they haven't taken advantage of the 'Another Earth' title and focused the film around a rocket taking off and going to the other planet. They have completely ruined a great opportunity. It is also incoherent with the scientific realities of having another Earth in the Solar System. If there was another Earth, then it would not be that close to us and not affect our orbit. Other questions can also be asked- how didn't we discover this Earth before? How is it possible that it just suddenly appeared? Admittedly, the acting is decent enough for a low- budget film, but it's edge just gets worn down, quite rapidly at points, over the 90 odd-minutes of the film.
If you buy this film for yourself, friend or relative, they (or indeed you) will have to face the disappointment of it and regret at spending money, which you have worked hard for and will subsequently regret. Equally, if you receive this as a gift... good luck!
Thanks for reading my review.
