Epic Science Fiction Movie

Just watched the IMAX 3D movie. Trust me, don't do it any other way. Imagine ten of thousands of fusion thrusters are pushing our planet away from a dying sun on a IMAX screen. The visual effect is impressive and goes well with the story. The story is not everyday Hollywood style: Superhero saves the day; everyone else is there to give a round of applause. This movie brings a serious question to the audience: What are you gonna do facing an unavoidable, irresistible disaster to our civilization? All characters in the movie are ordinary people and everyone gives their answer with shining humanity. Against all the odds no one gives in without a good fight. The chance of success is close to zero but they choose hope. All the efforts add up and make impossible nothing. It is a Sci-Fi fan's feast you dont want to miss.

both story and graphic are fantastic

This is so far the best scifi Chinese movie i have ever seen. Honestly speaking, this movie is far more better than similar hollywood movies. if you are not sinophobia and can accept mostly chinese (with subtitle), it will not not let you regret.

A rare gem in the field of Sci-Fi

After producing a string of sloppy, cringe-worthy sci-fi films, Chinese cinema has finally delivered one with awe-inspiring visual, and more surprisingly, a humanizing story. For fans of hard sci-fi, this film's premise is indeed a bit absurd and scientifically inaccurate; building ten thousand massive engines on the surface of earth to move the entire planet away from a dying sun. Still, the focus is not technology but people. The main plot focuses on grandfather, father and son (plus an adopted daughter) try to survive and preserve whatever dignity and humanity still remains on a chaotic frozen planet. The film hammers in the notion that anyone is somebody's child, parent or best friend, yet a single human life is merely an incredibly expendable resource in the bigger picture. The visual effects are total eye-candy, but a generous amount of practical effects and realistic props are constant reminders of the setting's 'earthiness'. The Wandering Earth's biggest surprise for me is political. Usually, Chinese nationalism means that foreigners in sci-fi films are portrayed as either villainous or incompetent. Yet in this film, the Chinese characters struggles to save the day, and eagerly cooperate with an international force of largely nameless heroes. It's another reminder that in this depressing future, even the Chinese strength cannot succeed alone. This movie has a lot of dialogues, more than that's necessary in most scenes. Unless its dubbed, I don't think an English-speaking audience could fully enjoy it. Another issue is the cast, almost entirely comprised of rookies. Though the acting is not bad, it's certainly not consistent either. People who had read The Wandering Earth held high expectations for the film adaptation, those expectations have certainly been met.
