VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) A cinematic triumph by Sam Mendes. The entire movie appears as one long shot without any cuts.
2) Best Cinematography award confirmed for Roger Deakins for the second time. Not since Birdman (2014), we have watched such wonder.
3) The movie is mainly a one-man show by George MacKay as Lance Corporal Schofield meeting characters along the way of his mission.

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) The first half of the movie is a thought experiment paradox like the “Trolley Problem”. Should he or shouldn’t he?
2) Excellent cast completed with the presence of Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne.

 

CONS –
1) The second half is more like a space disaster movie with a happy ending.
