Well I went to see the movie in 3D. The technical effects were very good and the 3D was good as it was not popping out of the screen at you, just good moderate 3D.
But for Saundra Bullock to operate a Russian soyuz escape module and the a Chinese escape module was a little over the top. As much damage as these things had, first the shuttle torn apart, then jetpack jetting over to the ISS which had tremendous damage she was to use one of the soyuz earth return modules, but that was damaged, so she had to disconnect from the ISS and pilot the damaged Soyuz over to the chinese space station, which was also severely damaged.
Getting over to the Chinese station she had to abandon the damaged Soyuz and use a fire extinguisher as a hand held jet pack to propel herself over the last few 100 feet.
Using the Chinese earth return module she barely makes it back. She also started with her american spacesuit but when she entered the Russian Soyuz she donned a Russian space suit. Guess I'll have to see it again to find out why she changed suits. Oh wait, the oxygen in her suit was depleted so I guess there is no way to recharge your suit oxygen since the ISS was badly damaged.
It wasn't the great movie all the hype had given it. There were only 7 people in the whole theater for 7:30 showing.
Her floating and pushing herself around the the space stations was well done and believable that it is zero gravity.
Add you comments if you have seen it.
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
