Space Station 76 Review

Synopsis:

A 1970s version of the future, where personalities and asteroids collide.

Space Station 76 (2014) is an American science fiction drama comedy movie that is 93 minutes long. Director and co-writer Jack Plotnick (Meet the Fockers (2004), Rubber (2010), Down with Love (2003), Gods and Monsters (1998)) did an awesome job. Jack has over 100 acting credits and a few writing and directing credits. He is one guy that might not get bored with is job. The movie did contain good comedy as I laughed about twice in the movie. The movie contains major sexual content and is not suitable for kids/teenagers to see. It also contains many people trying to commit suicide more than once, violence, drug use, bad language and intense moments.

Space Station 76 was an entertaining watch but disappointed in the comedy and sci-fi area. I would not consider the movie to be entirely sci-fi as it strays from it as the movie goes on. Space Station 76 is actually a space station in the movie that is a refueling satellite. It is located next to an alternate-reality Earth in 1976. Jessica (Liv Tyler - The Incredible Hulk (2008), Armageddon (1998), The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)) is the stations new first mate. There were some asteroids colliding while Jessica was saying how much she likes that asteroids are very predictable. Jessica soon learns that things are not what they appear to be at first when she enters the station. She realizes that everyone is stressed and has several issues because they are confined to the station and there is not much space for anyone to move around. She soon becomes very lonely because it was difficult for her to form any real friendship with the people. She later finds someone but he is married and has a seven year old daughter - What will Jessica do?

The acting, sets, lighting effects, special effects and cinematography were all good. I think the movie was labeled wrong and that is one of the main reason people do not like it. I watched this movie thinking I was in for some really good laughter and it was the total opposite. I was more saddening and felt the emotions of the characters in this movie. So basically if I was in the mood to watch a good comedy and saw this instead - I would be mad and probably dislike it because it was labeled as being a comedy and science fiction movie.
