This film knocked my socks off, since it was exactly the kind of hard science-fiction that I often read as a young man. In it, we are transported to a future time when space travel is commonplace; in this movie we see a man and his daughter who are hard-scrabble people trying to get by in life, but not wealthy. They are prospectors, and hope to strike it rich on a planet where breathing the air is deadly, so the atmosphere has to be filtered & atmosphere suits must be worn when outside.
The planet is spectacularly real. The airborne spores can be seen, and we are shown their deadly effect; most of the action takes place while wearing the suits which filter out those deadly spores. This film impressed me mostly for its realism; the suits were well-worn, the spacecraft were also, and much of their equipment had to be jury-rigged to be useful.
The actors did a great job; Cee (Sopie Thatcher) was a natural, and totally believable, and had good chemistry with Ezra (Pedro Pascal) who really carried the movie; he sometimes reminded me of Nathan Fillian in Firefly. I would’ve preferred a bit more background on their characters, and a few times I was unimpressed by their emotional reaction to certain events, but those are minor quibbles about an excellent film, which I urge all lovers of hard science-fiction to enjoy, as I certainly did!
As there are so very few real sci-fi movies to compare it with, I give this film 5/5; it’s excellent!
Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.
While the movie doesn’t have top tier actors, you’ll recognize some faces / voices if you pay attention.
This movie does a lot with a low budget, and, most of all, it properly builds an atmosphere that makes you feel what the characters are going through on an inhospitable planet. The story exemplifies how dangerous it is to be in space, putting the weight of survival heavy on the story.
The story itself is wonderfully complex: a contentious alliance between enemies with the goal of survival / escape.
I really enjoyed this, even if the planet itself is a little weird.
A side story from a greater universe
Prospect, directed by Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell, is a tale you could see on the fringes of a larger story. It tells about a young teenage girl, played by Sophie Thatcher, who lands on a distant planet with her dad (Jay Duplass), to hunt and harvest precious gemstones that might be their ticket to better life and prosperity. But, on the outer planets, you run into all sorts of danger.
Prospect is not a large story. Its about a single life, single girl, trying to survive a horrible situation. This story could be told in many ways. It could be a three page short story in a pulp magazine focusing on westerns. It could be a side plot on a TV series. It could be a whole novel, if you padded it and fleshed it out, but even then there’s not that much to bite on.
And that’s exactly why the film is so refreshing. Because it is such a rare piece, because it chooses to focus on a smaller story. And because it such a well-told narrative, it manages to make such a story feel grander than it is.
It helps that the film is brilliantly made. You can very easily see the limitations of the budget, but fortunately modern effects are so good that you can tell a science fiction story, set on a distant planet, and make it seem real even if you don’t have the budget for huge sets and elaborate props.
The acting is also surprisingly good. Thatcher plays her character very mellow, very low-key, but it works. Pedro Pascal as Ezra, a mercenary harvester, is also brilliant. Just the right amount of quirk mixed with world-weariness.
Prospect is an easy recommendation if you’re a fan of the science fiction genre. Beautiful visuals, interesting scenarios, great world-building and off-beat story moments. What’s not to like?
A superb gem within its genre
Typing on my phone just out of a film festival viewing so this is not going to be as detailed and organised as I would’ve liked. But the film deserves some rambling first impressions.
Many major science fiction releases from big studios in the past few years have been horribly cast mistreatments of lovely source material ( Valerian), angsty YA dystopians or wastes of opportunity (jupiter ascending).
Prospect is not a big waste of money, nor is it a waste of the audiences time. It’s a beautifuly we’ll crafted glimpse into an unknown future where humanity is still just as human as ever. It doesn’t utilise the power of its genre to force upon the audience the possible developments of current or imagined social or technological trends. It does however place it there somewhere subtly in the background and gives you the time to pick up the details and read between the lines.
The world building of the expanded universe is beautifully crafted by the props department, and even if costumes do sometimes leave something to be desired, a lot has clearly been achieved with limited means. Along with some cleverly written dialogue with unique speech patterns for each character lets you know of a larger world and richer characters outside of the little scenario we’re witnessing
The story of a few cast-away individuals scurrying amongst the dregs of a formerly booming prospecting industry on a soon to be abandoned moon is held together by a simple selection of location scenery. Whenever the relatively slow pacing of the film could let you get bored with the repetitive landscape, a powerful vista of the gas giant the green moon is orbiting reminds you how alien everything really is.
Sophie Tacher delivers a very convincing performance as the young girl afraid to be stranded in a corner of the galaxy soon to be forgotten while Pedro Pascal does a calm delivery of his charmingly unsympathetic rouge.
The score is well crafted, but at times I miss a more aggressive sound.
The high score I’ve given it isn’t because this is the best out there, but because it is pretty much as good as a space-western low budget indie can hope to be while preserving the mold.
Short version is: ‘true grit’ on an alien moon, with some early George rr Martin melancholic sci fi spice to make everything more interesting.
