Lord of the Flies in Space?

A crew of astronauts on a multi-generational mission descend into paranoia and madness, not knowing what is real or not.

This one screamed, "Lord of the Flies" in space. When a bunch of teenagers suddenly realize a program they are a part of is misleading them, it pushes them to start rebelling. All civility is lost and the groups descend into tribal warfare as we saw in Lord of the Flies. This movie is plagued with "as if that would happen" moments. Like having a ship full of kids, and one adult astronaut. I am still fascinated by how images of space can still send chills through me, but back to the review. This plays like a teenage soap opera at times, and other times feels cheap hunger games imitation. All in all, it was not as good as I had hoped but not as bad as I feared.

Ranking 6/10
