Pretty good. An interesting departure from the recently released Star Wars in that it’s a space piece that’s a bit more dramatic and real.

The action is mostly good, except for the “shock horror,” which is what I will call those cheap, insulting attempts to scare the viewer by a sudden loud noise or visual effect, usually caused by somethign stupid like a cat or someone dropping something. Visual effects are OK, sound effects are a bit cheesy and poorly edited.
