I enjoyed this movie. It has some great jumpy moments at the beginning to pull you into this movie's orbital trajectory.
But to enjoy this movie you do have to suspend your essential disbelief that America and a consortium of other product placement regions, sorry I mean Russia, China and Japan, could spend "well over $200bn" putting a science station in orbit and then man it (or should that be "woman it") with half of a dozen of their most stupid scientists (convincingly played by Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson). ;-)
If you can do that, you'll love it and even find some of it funny.
And if you've never seen Alien (1979) or Gravity (2013) before you might even find the plot line highly original too. ;-)
