There are plot holes in this movie so wide you could crash a space station right through it and no one would even notice.

This move, for me, fits squarely in the category of “well if you want to make a movie you just go right on ahead then”. The Husband described this as “Lockout but on the cheap” but I wouldn’t even go that far. It’s just, well, on the cheap.

There’s a story, of sorts. A space station has been repurposed into a “black site” where six terrorists are being illegally detained, tortured, and interrogated.

The storyline makes a big deal about how the Geneva Convention doesn’t apply in space,. and how expensive this station is, but, well, movie idealism. You and I both know you don’tneed to find and flout a legal loophole to carry out unsavoury things in quasi-public, you just need to do it and brazen it out on social media.

Anyway, The terrorists escape, due to the intervention of a horribly offensive stereotype of a female. A bleeding-heart, innocent doctor who is dressed in clinging, mesh panelled clothing, and makes terrible decisions. The only female character at all. Excuse me for a moment while I roll my feminist eyes some more. And then the terrorists decide to crash the station into Moscow. And then the running, and the, uh, fighting. Except in about four rooms? Yes. Moving on. Next movie please!
