Disposable and beautifully designed Hellraiser in space

Title says it all.

It´s quite watchable, but overall a frustrating experience as the cutting down of gore and story elements clearly shows.

Still better than average for the excellent designs and effects.

Too confused and unfocused

I have to say, this movie could have been way more intriguing and surprising If it just wasn't so badly written. Too much is left unexplained, and the whole movie is too disjointed : that's a pity because there were a few choices that I really appreciated, like Sam Neill's character slowly revealing himself as the villain, or the ending that leaves some sort of ambiguity with the last shot. The directing and the editing look fine most of the time, but during some scenes they drastically lower. Another missed opportunity

Genius cult scifi horror with awesome cast and effects

This movie is incredibly atmospheric with stunning physical sets (including the mind blowing engine of the ship). Lighting is awesome, it looks great, mindblowing soundtrack by Michael Kamen (Lethal Weapon, Die Hard) and an absolutely stellar cast including pre-Matrix but very Morpheus-esque Lawrence Fishburne, Jason Isaacs (Yep Malfoy) and Sam Jurassic Park Neill (being all English and awesome).

The film is a simple search and recover missing spaceship except it's a creepy missing spaceship capable of interdimensional travel - as so brilliantly explained in the classic scene where Sam Neil does physics with pencil and Sean Pertwee's nudie mag.

This film may borrow from the greats like Alien, but it borrows well, and the more recent Danny Boyle film Sunshine is more than a nod to this cult classic.

Yes there are some outlandish moment and silly ones, but it does a huge amount of excellent world building from the offset that means you're very willing to except what's happening.

This film plays to all out primal fears of space and psychological demons as well as real ones and had gets in your head as much as makes you jump.

This film holds up in 2018 with only a handful of shots looking dated. Some CGI zero gravity oil looks a bit rubbish today, but the sparing use of computer effects mixed with startling physical effects means you're rarely bothered by the fleeting dated moments.

There are a few grim but exceptionally brief shots that are absolutely necessary in conveying the horror of what the crew are facing. I'm a big wuss when it comes to horror and can say that it's the perfect amount of gross. Just enough for you to be watching a handful of scenes through your fingers whilst mainly enjoying a total rollercoaster of a movie.
