I was told over and over to watch this film. It's brilliant they said, you gotta see it. Well I did see it. All of twice. And that's more than enough for me. A great start comes crashing down with one of the stupidest, most muddled endings you ever saw. The story is a group of international astronauts go exploring a ship that was sucked into a black hole and returned. And oh yea, it returned with the gate to hell.
Lawrence Fishburne. The man carries the film. Actually, I think he's too good for this picture.
The atmosphere. Chilling and claustrophobic. Very uncomfortable. Good score.
The Ending. A huge disappointment. It goes from smart sci-fi, to shitty campy horror in minutes.
Jack Noseworthy. Made it to mainstream acting via the MTV generation. Problem is he can't act for shit.
Joely Richardson. What the fuck is Vanessa Redgrave's daughter doing in this?
They did a great job of cinematography, set design, sound and editing. Some actors are miscast, while some shouldn't have been casted at all. 3/4's of a very good movie.
