Interstellar (2014) Directed by Christopher Nolan 6/10 With echoes of Contact and 2001: A Space Odyssey comes Nolan's attempt at interstellar profundity about humanity, survival, time and space. The film is riddled with familiar actors who are well cast and is proficiently made but I was expecting to be wow'd visually and I never was. There is very little action in the film which suits Nolan better as the one action scene in the film he puts together with his usual ineptitude. The script is a little too wordy at times and a little sentimental but not in a bad Spielberg kind of way and the actors hold the material together. A lot of the design was forgettable but I really liked how the robots came together, in fact they are my favourite part of the whole film. The film proses some interesting ideas and is generally interesting enough throughout with a perhaps over done emotional core but in the end it all wraps up far too neatly for my tastes.
