Shoot for Mars and even if you miss you land among the stars… and this movie had many stars in it. I was surprised how good the casting was in this film. Even though, initially, I thought with Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain being in a space movie was too similar to Interstellar. This movie really wasn’t like Interstellar at all, and it was stellar. I was cringing at first because I hate movies where someone is trying to survive and is suffering. I usually hate disaster movies because of this. This movie starts a little bit like that, and I was preparing to hate this, but then it throws in some hope and good humor and becomes easily watchable. Matt Damon does great as the first human Space Pirate and the rest of the cast is awesome as well. I especially want to point out Chiwetel Ejiofor as being fantastic. I want to read the book that this is based off of now. Check this one out, it deserves all the hype that it had. I just wish it would have been about a half an hour shorter… but that was my only gripe.
