Adventure Drama Romantic - This is a romantic drama/adventure with science fiction elements
aimed at teens and young adults. Fans of leads Asa Butterfield and
Britt Robertson will enjoy while the veteran actors here, Carla
Gugino and Gary Oldman, have smaller supporting roles. Language is
minimal but some disturbing moments and brief sensuality would be of
concern to parents of young children.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average ... there are too many ingredients for this to bake into something palatable in two hours. The film is more likely to cause frustration than satisfaction because, although it offers something for everyone, there's not nearly enough of anything for anyone.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average ...the whole thing ultimately collapses in a heap of unintentionally hilarious melodrama. It's kind of an intriguing premise, even if it plays a bit like a "Muppet Babies” version of "Starman,”... But the sci-fi/mystery element of the film works far better than the romance...
USA TodayFull Review Below Average ... a sappy and ridiculous teen romance that's wholly unconvincing in its young love. ...the whole sci-fi narrative collapses into a mess of illogical story beats and groan-inducing quasi-tragic bits right out of Love Story. ...Space fails to launch, relying on emotional manipulation seen far too often.
NY PostFull Review Average Director Peter Chelsom and screenwriter Allan Loeb squander countless opportunities to make this fish-out-of-water story intellectually curious or even much fun. Still, there's sweetness to be found in their bond, and in Gardner's Earthly delights and occasional fright...
