WASTE OF TIME!!!This movie sucked, it was so terrible, and boring. It was a waste of my time, the plot summary to the movie made it sound interesting, but it wasn't. Just as you think something good is going to happen, nothing happens. WASTE OF TIME!!!.Score: 1/5

Not worth paying forThis is a slow and dull movie. It has an interseting plot but the movie was a little hard to follow and drug on. It is not worth paying for..Score: 1/5
A true work of cinematic art: a masterpiece that will endureGiven its genre as a sci fi (mystery)... it is important to know nothing about the story if it is to be fully appreciated and experienced as a mystery. Luckily for me, that was my experience, - and when I watched the trailer after the movie- and read the cover, I was shocked that all the essential mystery which is the driving and evolving core of the film, was completely given away! Granted a movie has to be sold - but this is not a "Hollywood dollar formulaic" movie - this is a true work of cinematic art - with a high arching philosophical narrative that reaches deeply into questions of soul, love and the meaning of human existence. If the movie had emerged having been marketed in an original way worthy of the caliber of movie it is - and presented as a true mystery - it may have had the impact it deserved. But nevertheless, the film will stand the test of time and be recognized for the masterpiece it is. Tartovksky, one of the great philosophical film makers of the 20th century, was surely smiling somewhere when this remake of his original emerged. W.E. Los Angeles.Score: 5/5

If you have ever lost someone...This movie had me totally captivated ... especially some parts of the musical score when he goes to sleep... I think they did a wonderful job. You know if you have every lost a very dear person in your life ... and think wow I would give anything to see them again! This movie so captures that spirit. That longing and love. I love the very last words ... I won't say them but they are my favorite ... I love this movie - one of my ultimate favorites..Score: 5/5
True ClassicThis is a modern classic. It's respectful in core mood and concept to the original book - not so much the earlier movie of the book - and it is a brilliant, utterly unforgettable meditation on loss, love, guilt, identity, meaning, mortality, humanity, sanity, wrapped in some of the most beautiful filmic images and music you will ever experience..Score: 5/5

You'll want to watch it again as soon as it's overThis is, without a doubt, one of the best movies I have ever seen (if not the best). There's just something about this movie that makes it fantastic, far above anything else. Perhaps it's the mood set by the actors and camera work, an almost overwhelming sense of loneliness and despair. The story is engaging and interesting, and although the movie is slow and has no action in it, it doesn't matter, because the movie doesn't need anything like that to keep you engaged. I know some people watch sci-fi movies for the action or for the cool special effects and all those aspects of the genre, and for those people this movie will fall well below your expectations. You have to watch this movie with an open mind, and you have to pay close attention. You also have to THINK, which also deters a large part of the audience. I will finally and simply say that this movie is without a doubt Soderbergh's masterpiece, although only an intelligent few will ever realize it..Score: 5/5

DepressingI usually love sci fi films. This film is slow and boring. Reliving Clooney's characters wife suicides is unpleasant. Avoid this expletive deleted..Score: 1/5
Eerie, Ethereal, and ExtraordinarySoderberg has utilized unparalleled cinematography and impeccable casting to produce a masterpiece. This often underrated film is not for the impatient; in short one has to be willing to immerse oneself in the thoughts and feelings of the main characters, (which is easily done thanks to the cinematography). Each scene gives the viewer another piece of the puzzle, but keeps even seasoned moviegoers guessing up until the final few minutes. It's not a fast paced, action filled sci-fi; nor is it a witty romantic comedy. But by seamlessly blending subtle elements of suspense often found in films such as The Sixth Sense (Solaris can be chilling at times) with the tragic story of a love gone awry, director Steven Soderbergh has created an original, thought-provoking, meaningful work that has stood out as one of my favorite films..Score: 5/5
Excellent suspense/Sci-Fi - It'll give you chills if you let it.The previous reviewer nailed this movie. If you allow yourself to become immersed in this film you will feel the cold of space and sense of being alone. Careful what you wish for before bedtime. :).Score: 5/5
