DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Mystery Sci-Fi Thriller - Sloooow is the best way to describe this movie. There are unusual camera moves and lingering shots of little interest. These combined with the very slow story make this a movie only for those who are well rested (so you won't fall asleep) and who like to discuss a movie afterwards trying to figure out what the heck they just saw.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Average "Snail-paced, suavely shot, and steeped in postmodern melancholy, Solaris is like 2001: A Space Odyssey.  ...a movie that exists primarily to shine a spotlight on its own integrity. ...a plodding and far less psychologically arresting version of Ghost.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Solaris may be the first big budget science fiction motion picture that belongs in an art house rather than a multiplex. The movie bears a stronger resemblance to 2001: A Space Odyssey than to Star Wars, with an emphasis on ideas over action. Those expecting to see space battles and bug-eyed aliens will be disappointed. There's nothing like that here. The experience of watching Solaris doesn't just invite thought and rumination; it demands it.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "At a time when many American movies pump up every fugitive emotion into a clanging assault on the audience, Soderbergh's Solaris is quiet and introspective. There are some shocks and surprises, but this is not "Alien." It is a workshop for a discussion of human identity.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "
Director Soderbergh does a fine job creating a moody atmosphere of pervasive anxiety. The ending can be interpreted a few different ways and should ignite debate about its meaning. Solaris is science fiction drama for those who don't necessarily like science fiction. There isn't much in the way of futuristic technology, and there are no identifiable aliens. It's more about the complexity of people's thoughts and emotions than about space exploration or the challenges of the future.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are the movies that we really save you time and money on. Most critics are saying this is a great movie, moviegoers certainly don't agree. As we stated in our prediction, this is not a movie most moviegoers will enjoy. When you get a lot of complaints that it was "Slow," "Confusing," "Strange," "Weird," "Bizarre" and others, it's certainly not a good sign.

If your taste in movies tends to run close to that of critics then you will likely be one of the few that enjoys "Solaris." All others should probably select another movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Despite the appeal of star George Clooney's naked rear end, this slow, abstract sci-fi romance will likely bore and confuse audiences. More adventurous viewers will appreciate the art, but most viewers will likely walk away unsatisfied -- and perhaps walk away before the film is over.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dr. Chris Kelvin is asked to investigate the unexplained behavior of a small group of scientists aboard the space station Prometheus, who have cut off all communication with Earth.

Kelvin undertakes the journey after watching a communiqué from his close friend Gibarian, the mission's commander, who seeks Kelvin's help aboard the Prometheus for reasons Gibarian is unwilling – or unable – to explain. Keenly aware that his opinion will decide the fate of the orbital station, Kelvin is shocked by what he finds upon his arrival: Gibarian has committed suicide and the two remaining scientists are exhibiting signs of extreme stress and paranoia, seemingly caused by the results of their examination of the planet Solaris.

Kelvin , too, becomes entrapped in the unique world's mysteries. Solaris, somehow, presents him with a second chance at love – to change the course of a past relationship that has caused him overwhelming guilt and remorse. But can he really revisit and alter the past? Or is he fated to repeat its mistakes?
