I have no connection to anyone involved in either the making or the distribution of this film.I'm struggling to comprehend the negative reviews I've seen posted for this piece of micro budgeted,character driven sci-fi. I urge you to judge for yourselves and be mindful of the obvious limitations imposed upon the production. Give it a chance people.

I wondered where the film was going to start with and it took a short while to get into it, but once I did I was gripped. A fascinating insight into a life of solitude in space with a truly authentic feel to it. I did truly feel as though I was getting into the mind of the character and I ended up rooting for him all the way. Something a bit different and well worth sticking with it. This film knows how to tug on the emotions. There are some good dark atmospheric moments and some wonderfully uplifting ones. Low budget obviously doesn't necessarily mean low quality. I can see however, that this film would not appeal to everyone and those that can't survive without a car chase or two probably won't take to it. For those that like to delve into the human psyche, you'll love it. I would thoroughly recommend it.

I'm watching this on Movies 4 Men and am enjoying it very much. I like the sense of isolation and other reviews don't seem to mention the main character's disinclination to venture into the dead main capsule. I could identify with his reasons and found camera shots of the adjoining hatch door and the noises he heard from within extremely creepy. I'll leave it there to avoid spoilers, but I think it's a great little film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A slice of the vastness of space crammed in to 90 minutes of movie. 21 Dec. 2015
By SBC97223 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a FIVE STAR flick as it accurately portrays the patient mindset necessary for space exploration.
Put simply space is huge and humans are small.

To explore even our solar system, we will have to undertake long slow missions!
This movie gets that. Are there a hole or two in the hard science--possibly.

But, they are trivial with the elements this story gets right:
1. The human power to explore is age old and likely to continue.
2. Quick solutions exist only rarely no matter what sixty minute episodes imply.
3. It will the patient scientific explorers who set the future as much as any.

So, if you want an action movie with a high body count, skip this one.
If you want an amazingly thoughtful low budget film addressing essential struggles in that which makes us human,
put this one on your list.

4.0 out of 5 stars That would be like driving with limited gas from St 5 Mar. 2015
By Daniel J. Fiebiger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I give this super-low budget film four stars for just getting the film made against all odds with a tiny crew, self-funding the film with no investors, and zero-studio support and trying to be serious about their story.

But there's one science fact they got wrong. VERY wrong. And it tarnished the film's story for me a bit. Several times in the story, discussions are held about using Venus to slingshot around to gain more speed and reduce the time of their journey. And he does get close to Venus toward the end of the film.

But they apparently were napping during grade-school astronomy class, and never saw either version of COSMOS, cuz Venus is NOT in between Earth and Jupiter. It's MARS that any crew headed to or from Jupiter would use for sling-shot boost. Venus is CLOSER to the sun than Earth, NOT further. NO mission to Jupiter would take the ship anywhere near venus. That would be like driving with limited gas from St. Louis to New York city via Seattle. Ridiculous,

In real-life, the only way Venus would be between Earth and Jupiter is if the mission had been launched when Earth was on it's FAR side of its orbit around the sun, relative to Jupiter being on the other side of the sun at the time, and Venus just happened to be in its orbit on the other side of the sun at the same time, but then, NO mission would even be STARTED under those conditions, another huge waste of limited fuel. NASA would simply wait x-months (up to a half-year) to START the launch of the mission when Earth was the SAME side of the sun as Jupiter, saving them millions of miles of travel in the ship, and which would automatically take them AWAY from Venus no mater where Venus was in its orbit.

This is a pretty basic astronomy error for a film that otherwise is trying to be scientifically accurate to add credibility to the film's story. This isn't a Sci-Fantasy film like Star Wars. Or even a highly-science-speculatve kind of movie like Star Trek that uses a lot of (so-far) unproven physics for their ships to speed around our part of the galaxy. Like the movie "Gravity", this film is supposed to be a potentially credible story that uses all of what we currently know to be scientifically accurate. But this one major planetary error undermines the story for anyone who knows even basic astronomy and NASA-physics history.

I wish I had been with the director when he was first-writing his story to point this out to him so he could simply change the word "Venus" to "Mars" whenever it occurs in the film's dialog, cuz this is the only serious scientific error in the film that diminishes it's otherwise impressive achievement for such a low-budget movie.

Maybe he'll get it right next time, if he ever makes a sequel.

1.0 out of 5 stars A guy living for months in what looks like a 8x10 ft 18 May 2016
By Milus Magnus - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The best thing about this movie is the graphics on the poster, everything else about this movie is mind numbing and horrible!! And totally not believable. A guy living for months in what looks like a 8x10 ft. box, is asking the viewer to suspend disbelief for way too long or far...the length of the entire movie basically. I understand making movies on NO budget does happen but some movies with no budget should never get maid, this is one of them. This movie has that first year film school quality over all, if that.
3.0 out of 5 stars ***NO SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW**** iT'S AN OKAY FILM IF YOU ARE RUNNING OUT OF FREE SCI-FI TITLES TO WATCH. 12 Jun. 2016
By Movie freak - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I can see why the ratings are all over the place. If yo are a sci-fi fan and running out of movies to watch, this one is worth watching. I won't need to see it again. Some of it is a little monotonous. I didn't see the ending coming and I am pretty sure this is why a lot of fans did not like it. I would have liked a flash forward at the end.

Eric Hayden has directed many sci-fi films and this is pretty well directed. In some ways, this film is quite different and deep on some psychological levels. I gave it 3 stars. There are some better films out there to be sure, so it didn't get a five. I took away another star for the ending. So this film is okay. I skimmed a couple of reviews and some people took points away because of "technical stuff". I can suspend my beliefs and knowledge for a good tale. If you can, too, then you won't hate this film. But do not expect to walk away feeling energetic or excited. The film is a mood killer as a prelude to any romance with a date.

I can say I have seen it. Once was enough. I am neither disgusted nor thrilled. It's simply a sci-fi tale that may have enough energy to get to distant planets, but probably did not do well enough at the box office to make a profit.

I hope this helps you make a decision.

3.0 out of 5 stars and Aircraft Commanders don't act like this. The basket cases get weeded out very ... 19 Jun. 2016
By Bee2Bee - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If we were sending civilians into space, maybe. Astronauts, Test pilots, and Aircraft Commanders don't act like this. The basket cases get weeded out very early in the training or in the actual flying of high performance aircraft in high stress environments (This guy couldn't even find the right side of a light to turn it off). Sorry, the screenwriter needs a couple of thousand hours in simulators and actual line missions before he can begin to understand the mindset of an experienced astronaut. It's why it's called "The Right Stuff."...and this guy didn't have it.
