Stowaway ★★★

100-word review: Oh, so we never get to know how Michael wound up behind screws and panels in the spaceship foundation? It's asking a lot of suspension of disbelief to think something like that could happen accidentally, and that for a film that actively tries to be hyper-realistic on a budget. During its finale outside-of-the-spaceship set-piece, Stowaway, because of its realism approach, transports the viewer back to 2013 — I'm talking Gravity of course — but although Penna certainly did his research, he lacks the technical vision of Cuarón to make this sequence pop the way said film did.

Part of my April 2022 Simply Sci-Fi challenge; 15th out of 30 films.
