What everyone else has said about this movie is true: the first half an hour is interesting, then it’s all downhill. Specifically, it introduces a story that appears to be an interesting cross between 2001 and Aliens. That story, the movie’s strong point, quickly degenerates into a supernatural horror story. I actually fell asleep during the last ten minutes. I rewound to see what I had missed. Turns out I didn’t miss much.
