Elevator Pitch As the inhabitants of earth grapple with climate change and crop failures, NASA recruits some old stagers to take a space ship through a wormhole to explore planets in distant solar systems. It is the second exploratory voyage, but nothing has been heard of the first.
Content Lots of really impressive space stuff as the voyage is taking place, then things become a bit more obscure as time varies for those in space and even for those waiting on the ship as others explore a planet. Some interesting input from the robots on the team.
A View I could not help being reminded of 2001 A Space Odyssey, for me one of the most over-rated films ever. Apparently the whole film corresponds with at least one view of quantum physics, where in the end time and space no longer control human existence in quite the way we have come to accept. But it has been much liked and cost quite a bit less than Kung-Fu Panda.
