Director Ridley Scott elevates the visuals to a new sci-fi high in this tale of explorers following a map to the far reaches of outer space. From the holographic images on the ship to the massive beehive-like structures, the film is glorious in design.
The works of Edgar Allan Poe become a blueprint for a serial killer. John Cusack plays the character with a wonderful balance of creative brilliance and madness. The role calls for Cusack to go from a pompous, self-absorbed writer to a truly caring person.
