I found it impossible to follow. My wife who gets into sci-fi far more than me had to help clear up the confusing plot for me on the drive home.
I can't stand it! LOL!
Can you imagine how the Russian girl that Jack brings back to the Sky Tower feels when she's looking at Jack while she's laying there?
She at first thinks she's looking at her husband who was the commander of the space module which he....at the last moment decided to un-hitch from his capsule....and place into a SIXTY YEAR ORBIT!!
But she thinks that Jack is her husband because IT'S A CLONE! Jack is TECH 49.
Anyway, you're laying there thinking...okay, my husband and me were lucky to survive. She thinks it's still 2017. NOT 2077.
Is that clear?
And then discovers TECH 52 is another clone of him. And he's got a Victoria too! THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF THEM.
All made from the Russian girls pilot husband. The only other person in the cockpit part of the capsule was the original Victoria.
THE ALIEN produced thousands of clones from those two people and created "teams" that protected their water converting machines from scavengers.
.....who aren't scavengers at all.
It's an amazing story.
I've been wondering if there was a clone of 'you'....would it experience strange dreams because every conscious thought is implanted in your DNA string?
Would 'they' actually have dreams of your dreams of that Super Bowl experience? That moment you met your wife? The way she looked? It really profound....because
.....there's a TECH 52, TECH 55....and so on and so on..
They were told not to veer off into the 'red zone' or they could die from radiation. So....SALLY controlled everything from the temp ship.
Sally was amazing....her friendly Southern mannerisms. She asks the question..."You ARE and EFFECTIVE team??" in an accusatory style.
She's not human...she's a machine.
They used the clones because they didn't want to come down to the surface....or because it was all computer controlled.
The drones steal the show....the audio amazing. I turn my speakers up as it is because of my severe tinnitus...but I loved it.
A key item in the movie is that book that is there plain as day when Jack descends into the sinkhole....which is the New York Library btw....the book is directly at his feet. He picks it up later on the way out.
Watch it again, Navy.
