It was a good idea that was very well excuted. I liked the fact it was a dark take on the idea of space travel. Before I saw it I had very naive ideas about what places like NASA must be like. I had visions of sciencists of all nations working together to extend human knowledge, etc, etc. This film woke me up to the idea that they are just as political as they are sciencific organisations. It is at all times a fairly plausible movie. I had heard there was to be a remake and I hope it lives up to its predecessor and its not dumbed down or the ending changed. I can't see a movie which is basically about the American authorities murdering national heroes selling very well in the current climate.
