The Space Between Us

The first ever human born in Mars will journey to the Earth to where he belongs, only then he will realize that home isn’t what we always expected it to be.

Too predictable. Too cheesy. Over clichéd. The Space Between Us builds a great premise but fails to deliver due to its poor writing and a lot of scenes we’ve seen before, thus, making a totally forgettable chick flick.

What’s not good about the film?

As mentioned, it’s too predictable. Every pictures gives away the audiences its conclusion, the fact is, (Spoiler) it didn’t took long before I thought that Gary Oldman is his father.

The actors portrayal doesn’t seem to be likeable that much, yes, they have their bright moments but most of it shows as if the actors doesn’t even want to be there. And why is Oldman shouting in his every lines?

Clichés. An outcast trying to fit in with the new surroundings is something we’ve seen before, and, done better. It’s kinda funny but the laugh doesn’t stay too long. Even though some of it’s parts are definitely heart wrenching, yoi can’t really deny that after all, it’ll just end up in a happily ever after. (Spoiler) I’m not sure but I prefer to have Butterfield’s character died instead of being saved, from that point is a more dramatic approach.

What’s good about the film?

The visual effects are decent. The teenage love story is there. The family conflict over reputation is there, which, I consider is the best point in it. Its simple narrative and a lot of quotable quotes.
