Review:

I cannot understand why the makers had to dumb down the script so much. So many stupid lines. Why there is this belief that a movie cannot be understood by the "average" viewer? Half the population has an IQ above average by definition. Target them.

Such a wasted opportunity. Also, the viewer is so obviously pushed to have an emotional connection with the character, and to make that happen they decided to put a handsome actor talking half stupid, showing so long minutes of love story with the girlfriend but most importantly with the dog (a trip on a motorbike?!?).

It seems they put a bit of an effort in the last two lines of the script. What a wasted opportunity. The idea of gravity anomalies should have been explored far more without the cheesy parts.
