The Starship Avalon is on a 120 year journey to a distant planetary colony of Homestead 2. With a crew of 250 and 5000 passengers. When an asteroid knocks the ship ‘auto pilot’ and other features start to fail one in which a glitch rouses Jim Preston (Pratt) from his decades long hibernation chamber.
So this looked like interesting fare
After a time and in need of company Preston wakes Journalist Aurora Dunn (JLaw)
well it started out interesting but it felt longer than the hour and 56 minutes I noted. Sort of like a forced build up just without any mystery to unfold, or climax, or the good scare. There is I think a little homage to The Shinning when Preston goes to the bar (I think this was after he’d been along for a time.) I’m not sure if that’s on purpose or its just me that felt that way. Also liked the (Is that) Art Deco of the bar area.
Yes it was an interesting story but at some point it was no longer interesting to me and just started to lose interest (maybe because as I said the 2 hours felt more like 3 or more) I don’t mind a 2 hour (or longer movie for the prices we pay now and days) but when they feel LONGER and they are not that’s when I have the problem.
(Honestly around 2 hours is the norm these days, in the 90s and back it was usually 90 minutes with the rare movie like Goonies, I never realized how long it was til I was an adult its a rare 2 1/2 -3 hours for that era! but still one of the BEST movies ever!
