MOVIE REVIEW: "INTERSTELLAR" (2014)
“INTERSTELLAR” (2014) MOVIE REVIEW
After the inaugural press screening a couple of mornings ago, you could witness a flurry of interest by newshounds, all too eager to pounce.
Has it dawn upon anyone that this futuristic sci-fi film INTERSTELLAR is going to out-perform any box-office expectations in Asia and most parts of the world?
The name CHRISTOPHER NOLAN still sells, much to the chagrin of his competitors who have been waiting for an opportune moment to have him slide from the pedestal.
It appears that the wondrous special effects and thunderous rumblings on the IMAX screen have to do with the wailing roar. Maybe.
You will be amazed that, suddenly, everyone is a professional guru telling you how the film should be made.
could be secondary. Or could it?
INTERSTELLAR is a wake-up call for those who never bothered about the ravages of time and piling up damage caused by global warming ,until it’s too late.
Taking everything for granted, what would really happen in the near future if the world is devoid of food. water. anything? Bleak, right?
This is the sedate life that we often take for granted.
exemplifies Cooper the lead character (Matthew McConaughey) as a former NASA test pilot and engineer-turned-corn farmer. He now enjoys a simple rural life tending to his harvest.
The members of his happy family comprise of his 10-year-old daughter Murphy (Mackenzie Foy), 15-year-old son Tom (Timothee Chalamet) and father-in-law Donald (John Lithgow).
“INTERSTELLAR” is an arresting film that is highly speculative, yet with a fair amount of reality jolt in regard to scientific accuracy.
It has been scientifically proven that, in the near future, the earth will no longer be able to sustain humanity at the rate it is going.
Dust storms will scour the land and mankind will be regressed to become an agrarian society.
Four astronauts — former Air Force pilot played by Matthew McConaughey and scientists Anne Hathaway, Wes Bentley and David Gyasi — are selected to travel to a wormhole near Saturn.
The idea is to go through the wormhole and hopefully find another planet capable of sustaining human life.
NASA is a secret organization led by Michael Caine a “gravity expert”.
But the voyage may keep McConaughey away from Earth for untold years, which will break his daughter’s Murphy’s heart (she’s played as a child by Mackenzie Foy and as an adult by Jessica Chastain).
Murphy swears never to forgive her father for choosing mankind over her.
While in space, Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) the pilot and fellow astronauts, Dr. Amelia Brand (Anne Hathaway) and 2 other scientists realize that time is not on their side.
One slip in space could mean collective years deducted back on Earth.
Their loved ones could die from either hunger, old age or breathing too much dust into the lungs.
At all costs, these astronauts must ensure that mankind stays afloat.
But what’s in-store for everyone faced with in this precarious situation?
Mother Earth is fast running out of food resources, so a team of explorers (Captained by Matthew McConaughey ) ventures the unknown in human history.
They are taking the giant leap to infinity to discover whether mankind can provide a haven among the stars.
This is also a heart-breaking film where you get to watch actor MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY crying buckets especially in moments when he interacts with his family from outer space to Earth.
MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY is destined for an OSCAR mention for not checking on his emotions and flows of tears.
Touching story, no doubt, with equally stunning visuals.
“INTERSTELLAR” in closing, is both haunting and heartbreaking, told with a tenderness that keeps the audience gripped to its finale.
RATING: 4 out of 5
Local Distributor: WARNER BROS PICTURES MALAYSIA.
REALLY KOOL, right?
