Somnus full movie review - not Kubrick
yes, i gave it a 3.
Because it is the kind of movie i hate, but they (those who wrote the plot and ads) tricked me into watching it.. Oh, my.
The story: there are 4 little pigs on a ship. They try to go to the market and..well, you can imagine the rest.
There are so many slows, and stops, and things that looks like wannabe "2001 space Odyssey", but they are just heavy waiting times put there to achieve a couple of hours where it could last only 20 minutes.
The voices remind me of a "star wars making" interview: at some point, people looking at Darth Vader and asking each other "really, is he really going to have *that* voice? (assuming the Scottish accent of the actor was an anti-climax). Well, here you got just that: the actors voices, making them look dumb whenever they were trying to look tragic.
Half of the movie, i didn't understand.
Sort of flashbacks from the pilot that lies sleeping nowhere, a co-pilot screaming like a little girl and then acting like Rambo I to IV all together, the mad computer that nobody can stop until a guy just pop open the impossible-to-open-door and kills it (yep, just like a snap.. why didn't they do that before everyone was killed?), the train thing at the beginning, and even a recycled stargate to signify the end of the world.. not to mention the flight instruments that came out of a 70's cargo plane rather than 23rd century cargo spaceship. With analog speedometers! (or something like that).
I am not sure i'm being objective writing this.
All i can say, i went to look a sci-fi sort of action movie, and ended up in some director's mental puzzle.
And the "exciting ending" is nowhere, honestly.
