This movie is great, not only in terms of cinematography but also in terms of the scientific and sci fi elements that is based upon. Also for me it's a big plus that it's an adaptation of the novel with the same name written by the great Carl Sagan. So if you're looking for an alien invasion blockbuster type of flick this isn't the place. That being said if you have a brain and an interest and curiosity in science, science fiction and extraterrestrial intelligence then watch Contact. You won't be disappointed.
I don't know why but I've always enjoyed this film.. Its's like John Carter or Hidalgo I can watch it when nothing else comes to mind..
Boring for the most part. But there are some good parts to watch. One point of interest is the conversation between the lead character on earth and a person in Mir space station, somehow they managed to communicate without any delay while basic physics showed that sounds cannot travel that fast.
It just need a nude bongo scene...
I watched this, thinking it was another film I had seen which was similar to this.
It wasn't the film I had in mind, but I'm sure glad I continued on watching it. I don't recall seeing this one earlier.
It was a good watch. Foster and McConoughey ;)
Classic show. A must on anyone's space exploration movie list.
Whats in the last chapter? oh please tell me
