George Clooney's last movie with this director, without trying to sound too politically incorrect, kicked ass. Ocean's Eleven rallied a seismic jolt of enthusiasm, and turned out as an elating blaze of flair and pride. A thoroughly satiating experience of entertainment.
With expectations soaring into the orbit for Solaris, with the same combo of Steven Soderbergh and the inimitable George Clooney, the movie is easily one of the most expected releases of this year. Getting mixed reactions from the movie buffs all over the globe, the movie finally releases without much hype, here.
Solaris is the story about a space station that has gone bonkers. On arrival at the space station orbiting an ocean world called Solaris, a psychologist (Clooney) discovers that the commander of an expedition to the planet has died mysteriously. The only other two-crew members keep insisting that the planet under observation was actually reacting to the presence of the scientists.
Other strange events soon start happening as well, such as the appearance of old acquaintances of the crew, including some, like the psychiatrist's wife, who are dead.
In Solaris, Clooney has dropped his velvety arrogance from Ocean's Eleven and got back to that dark gazing from The Perfect Storm. A terrific actor and a great director, this movie really looks juicy.
Solaris stars: George Clooney, Natascha McElhone, Viola Davis, Jeremy Davies and Ulrich Tukur.
