suspenseful and visually breathtaking (before the cg turn to shit in the few final shots in space), but a bit cheesy also.
The cheesiness comes in the form of dialog, which is a little too melodramatic and expository even in scenes where talking is unnecessary or even life threatening for the character... i mean, did George Clooney really think it was a good idea to make Sandra talk about her life, when she has 1% oxygen left in her tank...There are also other things that bothered me, like logic defying things that are there just to make the film more suspenseful. unfortunately that form of suspense comes at the too high of a cost (believability wise), that it subtracted from my enjoyment of the film.
In a few cases the melodramatic parts (kind of) worked for me, mostly due to them being coupled with a phenomenal score by Stephen Price, which enhances every aspect of the film, and is the reason i rewatch this film every so often.
