Upside Down (Sci-Fi Drama 2012)

I've always been a fan of Kirsten Dunst, so I was excited to find out that she was in another film. Was it good? Not really, but I think it was mainly because of the thousands of disconnects with the premise of the story and not because of the acting per se. Not saying that the acting was particularly good but yeah.

The movie didn't make sense from a physics perspective. Two planets existed so close together that they had different worlds where one jacked the other economically. Sorta like the class discrimination concept in the latest Total Recall movie. Odd thing with this world was that a person could not jump to the other side since gravity would still hold them onto their own side. So yeah from a scientific perspective it didn't work but whatever.

The drama was OK but way too transparent  Guy likes a girl and then tries to be with her while not caring about anything except that goal. Visuals were fair...story was eh and overall it wasn't very memorable.
Rating - C
