The Space Between Us Review

Let's start the review.
According to Wikipedia, the plot is - 
In the near future, Nathaniel Shepard, CEO of Genesis, launches the first ever mission to colonize Mars. During the journey, the lead astronaut, Sarah Elliot discovers she is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on Mars. The father of the child is unknown. In a dilemma, Nathaniel eventually decides to keep the child on Mars and a secret, to avoid a PR disaster for his company. 16 years later, her son, Gardner Elliot, has grown into an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who has only ever met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing. One day, in order to find out more about his mother, he hacks into Centaur, a robot he helped build, to gain access to the ship's storage. There, he retrieves his mother's items. Among them, a wedding ring and a USB drive, from which he plays a video of her and a man in a beach house. Convinced that the man is his father, he becomes determined to find him.
Story: 9/10
I really enjoyed the story. It's a bit unusual type of love story so I really enjoyed it. However, the reason why I didn't give the story full marks is that the story line is very classic apart from the sci-fi. It lacks a spark that made the story line bring to the higher level.

Sound: 9/10
I enjoyed most of the soundtracks. I saw they were uploaded to Spotify so I have been listening some of the soundtrack while studying. I didn't really enjoy much of the songs but I really liked the instrumental music a lot. And hence, 9 out of 10.

Enjoyment: 8/10
I find that the movie is a bit draggy and slow. I got annoyed at how high expectation Gardner had for Earth for some reason that I don't really know. (hahaha) It was a good movie but it didn't made it to the top list.

Overall: 8/10
It was an okay movie to watch. The main reason why I gave an 8 is mainly because I like the main character Asa Butterfield from the famous movie Ender's Game and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Other than that, I have not much to say about the movie.
