It's a very scary subject. Lost in space, alone in the wide, empty universe - empty of air, of sound, of people, of help... very, very scary. But I digress.
What I wanted to say was that this is a movie worth watching if you want to see some beautiful pictures of earth from space. I'd love to know whether those are actual ones or if they're totally computer-made or somewhere in between. Other than that the movie has some pretty hairy situations, and some really overly hollywood-soppy moments (including violins in the background...). The no-gravity scenes are pretty cool, as is the realism of the inside of those space stations. But then Hollywood has always been good at that sort of thing.
I do think they overdid the violin moments, though. The flying around in space without a safety line bit was hair-raisingly scary, yes. A bit of relief from all the tension is necessary, and with only one character involved in a scene any sort of dialogue is going to be internal, but still...
Have you seen this movie? What do you think?
