Goofs

A ship where no humans were awake wouldn't need artificial gravity, particularly when such an effect had to be accomplished by spinning the ship, which would complicate astrogation, steering, etc., put stress on things fastened to the outside of the hull, etc., and generally complicate things unnecessarily. During the initial and final parts of the trip, while people were awake, the engines would presumably be providing acceleration or deceleration, which would itself provide enough gravity without spinning. A combination of thrust and spinning would produce a resultant fake gravity which would be their vector sum, but the spin of the ship would add a coriolis effect which would make things move in weird curved paths.

Very enjoyable indeed!
22 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a forty-something male and I loved this movie. I didn't quite know what to expect, saw some less than glowing reviews, but decided to favor the more positive reviews and head to the theater. I'm glad I did.

If you like science fiction, this has it. If you like romance, this has it. If you like excellent special effects, this has it. If you like a good story, yes, this movie has that too.

This isn't a Star-Trek style high-octane Sci-Fi action movie. It's a solid blend of drama, romance, action, intrigue, stunning visuals, occasional suspense, human psychology, and for me was a winning combination.
