i found this movie to be highly unrealistic. i know i know...unrealistic??
well after you agree that what happens in the movie can happen, you look
at the effects...what happens to hamper the characters when they are up
there...and everything else. i mean c'mon. with the amount of debris and
shrapnel that hit the shuttles when mir blew up would have damaged
them...as opposed to just being good special effects which they were. how
about a space shuttle going 2500 km per hour (maybe 12000 km/hr, not sure)
and getting hit by chunks of asteroid as big as the shuttle and then crash
landing and having 3 men live and their special equipment survive while the
rest of the shuttle is in so many pieces as to be almost unrecognizable.
sure it had emotional impact, but almost all special effects action movies
have tear-jerker parts just to get more people roped into thinking it was a
good movie...."oh i cried so it must have been good!!"
there are many more points but i will end it here for the sake of this
already long OT post.
to sum it up...this movie strained my ability to look past movie license in
the sake of a good movie. this movie was way beyond even my fanastic limit
for what happens to them while they still survive.
save it for the video store and you'll probably be much happier. better
yet...go see deep impact.
