Movie Review: The Astronaut Farmer

Just downloaded the movie The Astronaut Farmer on the Xbox 360 and watched it last night with the family. All in all, there's a good story buried in here somewhere, but honestly it's pretty hard to find. At the core, the message of the film is positive - it's about being together as a family, dreaming and doing the impossible.

Unfortunately, the journey to learn those lessons isn't all that interesting to watch. Even with a solid cast (Bruce Willis really isn't much more than a cameo, though) the film falters on most levels. Special effects, acting, script, cinematography - everything is budget or below average.

There's a couple of great scenes and great lines - even and a few creative shots - but all at the end of the day this family film fails to lift off. C-
