Pretty, of course. Shots of the orbital city are gorgeous. Again, of course.

 

But the writing. I mean... what? Why didn't they... why was it... why... er... why couldn't they...

Oblivion is the other movie you guys are thinking about.

I found the writing to be tight.  Basic, but tight.

Just re-read the thread and I see I've copied Phil in the 'incomplete questions with multiple ellipsis' regard.

 

Unconscious imitation.
