Fast Five Review: Interstellar (2014)

Interstellar

Review by Lukas

1. Did you like it?

It was alright.

2. Why/Why not?

Interstellar was trying to be too clever for it’s own good and so attempted to pull the wool over the audience’s eyes with special/visual effects and a lacklustre act 2 climax. Just because your name might be Christopher Nolan does not mean you are given rite of passage to make purposefully illogical movies for the sake of the almighty dollar. Although I’m sure that many people are very fond of Chistopher Nolan’s previous works, I think one’s standard should remain high rather than riding the coat tales of past successes. I’d like to think others would believe the same ethos.

3. “You would enjoy this movie if…”

You don’t care about plot holes, logic. So if you like Transformers, you’d probably like it.

4. “This series made me think…”

That producers should not be allowed into the edit suite, just to speed up a movie, effectively removing key scenes that tie a story together.

5. Stars out of five?

Let’s face facts, I’m not going to watch this again in a hurry.
2.5 stars
