Oddly enough, my pain points with this movie are from plot holes, which is a good thing I suppose because I was hoping beyond hope that the science was fantastic (and it truly was). The sound design on this movie is truly incredible, everything from the dust storms to whipping winds on the outside of the cockpit. The parts of the movie that I had trouble swallowing science-wise were mostly alleviated by a bit of research after the show. Turns out I was wrong in some of my assumptions, which is a pretty spectacular thing to not only be entertained, but also be better informed. You won't get a greater understanding of physics by watching the new Fast and The Furious movie, that's for damn sure.
Overall, the movie is really quite good, and more than that, really quite an ambitious thing to film in the way he has. Reminds me a bit of Kubrik.
