The first thing about this film that every viewer needs to realize is that it was done with an extremely low budget. No flash and glamour in this one. However, this is a thought provoking film. The screenplay was well written and Brandon Ray Olive gave a great performance as Commander Roger Nelson. I was so entranced as the story unfolded, that I did not care about the low budget props. Even though, i thought the set scenery for Mars was well done. This movie was able to thread many real scientific theories and suppositions, and tickled your imagination for the possibility of life beyond earth. An expedition that was curiosity driven, but yet demonstrated the very human element of a relationship being fractured by the extended voyage of a married astronaut who is struggling with the anguish of being separated from his spouse for an extended period of time. The voices of A.I., Ferdinand and Neil, were both well done. This movie will appeal to those who prefer a well written script over spectacular special effects. I'm sure if this movie had a 20 million dollar budget, it could compete with the Sci Fi movies produced by Hollywood. This movie is an example of metaphoric saying, "having nothing but lemons and making lemonade."

Not all science fiction movies are able to include massive sets, unlimited special effect budgets, and high paid actors.<br/><br/>I had the feeling that this movie was somebody&#39;s passion project. It is a compelling story that someone wanted to make into a great movie. I commend the idea and the effort. Having said that, sure, most of the sets just scream low budget and the acting is hit and miss. Still, I thought it was a very good movie that kept me interested throughout. <br/><br/>I recommend this movie if you are into real science fiction - the writers/director were obviously fans of Arthur Clarke and Carl Sagan. If you are more interested in bright flashy scenes with massive sets and space battles with exotic aliens that rely on blaring soundtracks rather than intelligent dialogue, check out Disney&#39;s recently acquired space drama instead.

One of the best science fiction movies I&#39;ve seen in a long time! I&#39;m so glad I ignored the ratings on Amazon.<br/><br/>I have always been fascinated with the psychology of a person who would face the unknown. What kind of person sails off to find the Northwest Passage, explores the Amazon River Basin, takes a bathyscaphe to the deepest ocean trenches, or sails around the world in the face of skepticism and great personal risk? Through the story of one man&#39;s expedition into space, &quot;Magellan&quot; explores the driving curiosity and quest for significance that has sparked humankind to spread across the planet.<br/><br/>What &quot;Magellan&quot; is not: this movie is not an action or suspense movie. It&#39;s not a space opera. Despite a few attempts at creating a sense of urgency through restricted launch windows (this is not a spoiler--it&#39;s a space movie, so it&#39;s expected), this movie does not contain nerve-wracking countdowns to self-destruct sequences or chase scenes. It is not a big budget, eye candy extravaganza. The minimalist sets and straightforward production values may not meet the expectations of your average movie-goer who is habituated to breath-taking environments or mind-blowing special effects. (I will go see movies just for the CGI &amp; effects.) Nonetheless, the starkness and simplicity added to my enjoyment. I kept catching myself thinking over and over, &quot;Hey, this is really different--and I like it--a lot!&quot;<br/><br/>Who might like this movie: Anyone who ever wanted to be an astronaut. anyone fascinated with the possibility of life--any life--out there. Anyone interested in the uses of AI in space exploration; serious science fiction readers<br/><br/>The acting of the part of the protagonist, a NASA astronaut and scientist, is exceptional in an understated way. I felt as though I were watching the personal odyssey of a real astronaut and not a Hollywood celebrity playing an astronaut. His behaviors were relatable. His focus, sense of duty, and determination define the kind of quiet hero I expect in real life and real exploration. Plotwise, I railed at some of the his actions, but they are well within behaviors of some (not most) scientists in real life and consistent with the development of the character. Curiosity is a compelling motivation. The story arc is convincing, and the hero is a likeable every-man--with some higher academic education.<br/><br/>One reviewer was dismayed about the jargon in the movie. However, I found the use of a little biochemistry and physics terminology refreshing. It was not very complex--just enough to make it feel real. It&#39;s nice to see a movie not dumbed down to a sixth-grade education level. And the ability of the actor to portray the simple joy of being &quot;onto something&quot; in the lab made me feel as though I were right there.<br/><br/>The movie proposes more questions than it answers about the possibilities of extra-terrestrial life. So if you are expecting &quot;Alien&quot; monsters or &quot;Star Wars/Trek&quot; aliens--or even &quot;Contact&quot; mysticism, this is not your movie. This is a subtle story about what makes humans explore and the effect on the families explorers leave behind, not about creatures from outer space. It is about the desire for humans not to be alone in a universe that is inconceivably huge.<br/><br/>The cast is small. Although the protagonist&#39;s performance was very strong, the supporting cast could have been a little better, perhaps through editing. Nonetheless, I was mesmerized by the story and never bored for a minute. Great movie to come from Kickstarter origins.<br/><br/>Movies this one brings to mind (could be because of music, dialogue, structure, plot, premise,): Contact, 2001 Space Odyssey, Castaway, The Martian, any movie with a talking computer.
