Movie Reviews

The Guardian - 6/10 by Adrian HortonToo measured and sedate for a post-apocalyptic thriller, yet too barren for a Christopher Nolan-style space and time travel epic, IO appears most akin to The Martian in that it focuses primarily on one person’s grit and resourcefulness to endure and grow plants in an unforgiving place.
IGN - 6/10 by Kenneth Seward Jr.IO provides a different take on a familiar premise. The story is intimate in nature, with a plot that highlights the importance of relationships – not just between partners or family members, but relationships in general. Its pacing and lack of urgency betrays the drama though.
RogerEbert.com - 5/10 by Nick AllenBroad themes like staunch hope, and vital human connection, become cheap sentiments, vanishing into air. “IO” isn’t science fiction storytelling distilled so much as it is vaporized.
The New York Times - 4/10 by Scott TobiasThe dynamic between Sam and Micah shifts the film into romantic melodrama, as lifeless and as chaste as the windswept apocalypse that surrounds them.
The Hollywood Reporter - 3/10 by Keith UhlichThere's barely a scene in IO that's performed with pulse or verve. It's Sad-Face Emoji Sci-Fi, with po-faced references to Greek mythology, Chopin and T.S. Eliot, among others, and empirical techno-jargon spoken at a Valley Girl level of credibility.
Consequence of Sound - 3/10 by Blake GobleIO is dull, it drags, and it’ll beg the question: When will this, all of this, be over?
User Review - 7/10 by ThatFilmGuy20I.O is a bold attempt at a fascinating and complex premise, despite all the bad reviews it had I feel like this film was very badly misjudged, there were some justified arguments for being bad mainly in the Science part of the Sci-fi because this film pays no respect what so ever to science, but beath all of that and if one looks very closely, there's something there to be admired, mainly how it unfolded and acted, Margaret Qualley the actress that plays Sam delivers on a steady and constant pace which I really appreciated as her acting really captured the loneliness she was in, the plot didn't do get any favors but she worked with what she had and I think she was the glue that held this film from falling apart, having saying said that, I feel the need to say that I really liked it, and here's my reasons, first of all, I didn't see it as a big scale sci-fi that would adhere to the rules of science, this was more on the fantasy part but it wasn't bad by all means, it felt fluid, granted it was a bit bland at times but it really held its own I'd say, especially considering how limited the story is. This premise is infinitely complex, a lot of amazing writers and directors presented their work on it and the majority failed miserably, what we should take from that is the fact this wasn't trying to be epic, not even close, it was a simple, and as crazy at it sounds very enjoyable.
User Review - 7/10 by RaduAI liked it. It's not a masterpiece, but I can say I haven't lost 90 minutes of my life. I do not think it's for everyone (I looked to see what the world was saying and many said it was boring) but I like slow movies (some).

User Review - 6/10 by BerikAs far as the premise of the movie goes it probably hookes all viewers, but when it comes to the actual movie it's going to turn off a lot of them. But when you look at it for what it is, it's an okay movie. So, Girl stays on Earth in hope that one day she finds a way to have bees be able to survive the toxins. She does this by living in an air pocket on top of hill. But then nature happens and one little storm kills all the bees... and well that is just about as intense the movie is going to get. The movie makes an interesting plot, but it falls flat early one by not taking advantage of the large potential for such a story. There are a few nonsensical decisions which deflate the smart decisions made before (You know which one i mean) and the character of Sam becomes less relatable as the story progresses. On a general note, I'm getting frustrated with Netflix as they put out multiple Sci-Fi movies a year now (which i like) yet seem incapable of making one that hits it out of the park. This movie smells of the same effort of movies like Titan. The ending... it's quite lazy and lacks any impact. If we were actually shown the people of the exodus missions on Jupiter's Moon it would have mattered more as we know nothing about the conditions they live in. Overall this movie was pretty average, as it entertains but falls flat on delivery and satisfaction. I give this movie a 6/10.
