Approaching the Unknown 2016

     This film is about the first one-way solo mission to colonize Mars manned by Captain William Stanaforth.  Many things can happen on this journey and also after landing on Mars.  Captain Emily Maddox is also on a one-way solo mission to Mars in another space ship.
     The entire film is about watching one man alone in a space ship.  A few scenes of one woman alone in a space ship.   He encounters problems with the machinery inside the ship.  Mission Control orders him to return to Earth but he continues onward.  All I can say is that there isn’t much going on and also not much to write about?  2 ½* (This movie is so-so)
90 min, Drama directed by Mark Elijah Rosenberg with Mark Strong, Luke Wilson, Sanaa Lathan, Anders Danielsen Lie, Charles Baker.
Note:  Imdb 4.8 out of 10, 45% critic 15% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 2 ½*, Amazon 2.6* out of 5* with 75 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in Hudson Valley, New York.  There is a mistake in this film.  When Stanaforth communicates with earth, no is no delay in the reply.  The further away the sending of the signal, the further delay in the response signal.
