Superstar George Clooney turns in a stellar performance in this thrilling sci-fi movie from Academy Award winners Steven Soderbergh and James Cameron. Aboard a lonely space station orbiting a mysterious planet, terrified crew members are experiencing a host of strange phenomena, including eerie visitors who seem all too human. And when psychologist Chris Kelvin (Clooney) arrives to investigate, he confronts a power beyond imagining that could hold the key to mankind's deepest dreams... or darkest nightmares.




  • True Classic

    By John___M
    This is a modern classic. It's respectful in core mood and concept to the original book - not so much the earlier movie of the book - and it is a brilliant, utterly unforgettable meditation on loss, love, guilt, identity, meaning, mortality, humanity, sanity, wrapped in some of the most beautiful filmic images and music you will ever experience.
  • Remake of dull Russian film

    This film is okay, but not great.It is better than the original but I was left thinking that, while not a waste of my time, I could have been doing something better.

    i-tunes has it under their "Romance" section. Lol .. now I know why this movie never got rave reviews. Most people just don't get it. NOT ROMANCE. A Mind-Altering substance !
  • One of my favorite movies

    By Anabur
    It starts out looking like it'll be a scary movie, but turns into a philosophical, romantic drama with a few thriller elements. It blurs the lines between genres, but it's ultimately thoughtful and uplifting. Highly recommended. If you watch it without expecting it to fit into any specific genre, it's enjoyable and leaves you feeling like you experienced something special. At least, that's how it makes me feel.

  • You may want to read the book first.

    Fortunately for me, I read the book before I watched the movie. So I understood what was going on throughout the film. For instance, I already knew that on the planet was a liquid life form that covered almost the entire planet and that the life form could change the mass of the planet (read the book if you want to know why it did this. It is quite fascinating). So this movie is a lot like 2001. In 2001, the movie does not explain that he is traveling through a worm hole. So naturally most movie goers were confused by what was happening with the psychedelic lights as he is traveling through space. I think that Soderbergh was influenced heavily by Kubrick when he made this film. There are a lot of elements borrowed from 2001 and The Shining. It is one of the reasons why I love this movie.
  • Ummm...

    I really love this wonderful little film. If you remember that there are no explanations, only choices, you can enjoy a well acted, well written, and a well directed film. It may even force you to think a bit. What else does one need...mutos??? :)
