Chris: “The draw and appeal was Clooney but it wasn’t enough. It was OK for a one-time view. Storywise, you’re watching and waiting for a twist, so there was no surprise when it came. Overall, the movie was lacking; the tone felt 2 dimensional given the circumstances of the story.”

Matt: “George is a hit-and-miss director, but most of his failures come down to the subject matter and script. For The Midnight Sky, the story was disjointed, denying the audience full enjoyment of either side of the main characters’ journeys, and the movie’s crawling pace was noticeable and unnecessary. Some good scenes and acting, but falls very flat.”

Overview

Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first Shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The Shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone-tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness of space. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
