Johnny Depp stars as Spencer Armacost, an astronaut who loses communication with NASA while fixing a satellite. Upon his return, strange occurrences begin with Spencer's partner, who was up there with him, and his partner's wife. This, of course, starts up the paranoia with Spencer's wife Jillian (Charlize Theron).
Theron is the star of the movie, but the heart and soul of it relies on Depp, who just seems to be bored with the role. I would like to have seen his enthusiasm that he had with movies as Ed Wood. Spencer is the only character worth watching in this movie, but Depp is not right for the role.
The only stimulating scenes are those with Joe Morton, who plays a paranoid former employee of NASA. Too bad he only has 2 or 3 scenes. The rest of the movie, is boring, slow and painful to watch. I beg you to not see it in hope that Hollywood will stop making films like these.
Rosemary's Baby grows up.
