This is a production obviously made with a very healthy budget. It has very good production values and some 'A' list cast members. The film looks and sounds beautiful on Blu-ray, but...
The story, while OK, is hardly riveting, memorable or filled with action. There are a few concepts in play - a father and son reunion film, an adventure, and science fiction concepts in space. But the father/son aspect (I believe the main concept) is hardly explored and tossed away in the end. And the adventure is weighed down by the time factor (it takes a long time to get to Neptune) and some scenes are just so preposterous you'll possibly just stare in disbelief (eg. when Roy travels through an asteroid belt with just a rocket pack and a piece of metal to shield himself, and just shoots off in the general direction from one place to the next).
Things could have been tightened up a lot, improving the pace and cutting down on the bloated 122 minute run time. 3.5 stars.
The 4k transfer is fantastic as is the sound mix. I wouldn't recommend it unless you pick it up on sale.
