The Midnight Sky

Directed and starred in by George Clooney.

I liked this sci-fi.  Available on Netflix.  Itís about an apocalypse on Earth and a dying scientist that stays behind to warn the crews of returning space missions.  But more than that, it contemplates whatís left at the end of the world and a persons lifeís work and the sacrifices that might go along with it.

It has some pacing problems...  and relies a bit too much on disaster after disaster...  they donít hurt the movie, necessarily, but I donít think they helped the plot.  But they are visually quite stunning and well done.  They do add tension, but Iím not sure that extra tension was necessary given the main plot line. 

The ending was satisfying.
