SOLIS (Television Released in UK 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì 

Solis drags from its early scenes to its concluding scenes. It seems to run like a soap opera melodrama and does not present itself well on the big screen. The main character is taken through much suffering. Director Carl Strathie cannot stabilize, at any point in the film, a relatable link between the audience and the main character despite the pain the main character experiences. While the scope of outer space is almost as good as in the film,  Gravity, it becomes difficult to recommend this movie over films such as Life or Europa Report.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. This film could almost be skipped for the film Gravity, even though the presentation of Gravity could also be much improved. It is worth watching to get an increased appreciation for the scope of outer space.
