The Discovery Reviews:

The concept behind the premise of The Discovery is an interesting one but its implementation isn't as refined as expected and only works in bits n pieces. It's a thoughtful detail that experiments with existential elements and poses some intriguing questions but it neither presents it in a convincing manner nor remains thoroughly gripping.Set in the near-future, the storyline of The Discovery takes zone in a globe where suicide rate is at an all-time high after a scientist's breakthrough research proved the existence of an afterlife. The plot follows his son who is skeptical of his father's discovery and a mysterious young girl he meets on a ferry who wants to search out more about the afterlife.Co-written & directed by Charlie McDowell, the movie opens with a prologue that skilfully sets up the future the rest of the plot unfolds in. For a while, it appears as if the director is taking more time to properly establish the characters & discover the metaphysical elements but the longer it continues to ponder over the same stuff, the more tedious it becomes.The script is where the trouble lies, for the brilliant hypothesis that the writers came up with isn't meticulously explored as if they couldn't figure out what to do with it, plus none of the characters inhabiting its future-setting are compelling enough. The plot wrapped around its theory starts on a promising note but by the time it ends, it finds itself in a familiar territory.The cold colour palette, overcast ambiance & muted textures evoke a grim, hopeless future which fits the storyline requirements. Pacing is an trouble as the film plods through its 102 mins runtime before concluding with a rushed ending. Rooney Mara, Robert Redford & Jesse Plemons enjoy their part well but Jason Segel is severely miscast, and his chemistry with Mara is absolutely flat.On an overall scale, The Discovery is one of those sci-fi flicks that teases with a fascinating concept but is unable to fill a compact & captivating narrative structure around it. Deficient in storytelling department and further marred by its cluelessness & lack of vision, it is a dull & sterile mess that had the occasion to offer a sensory & stimulating experience but what it ultimately delivers is a cinematic ride that's as frustrating as it is hollow.


Don't know why this is getting some terrible reviews. This was now cute darn good.This film has an interesting take on consciousness and death that is worth the time to watch. Perhaps folks are not liking the existential weirdness and the questions it brings up but I enjoyed myself on this one.I think we all need to ponder consciousness and reality a tiny more.


I now started watching this by accident by hitting the wrong button on Netflix, and was intrigued by the premise and seeing craggy old Robert Redford and so I kept watching. Without any spoilers (though maybe you've already read some) I thought the primary concept featuring the afterlife was interesting and well-presented. There is a reason why Robert Redford has been a leading boy for over 50 years and it's everytime a pleasure to see him on screen.I also thought the helping actors were very good, a lot of personality came across from every character, I also liked the scenes and cinematography, which in a quiet method set a nice backdrop. Suffice it to tell I was drawn in, and about a third the method through the film it sets up something that should be Dr. Frankenstein, or The Sixth Sense, or Jonestown, or some combination.This unfortunately was the peak of the movie. It had set up a sweet romance between the characters played by Jason Segel and Rooney Mara, and that romance turned saccharine sweet and ended up being the main mission of the film which was a surprise. The entire science / religion / afterlife / from the beyond premise was dropped on the floor and nothing developed from it which was the reason I was watching. I thought there was enough depth to the concept that I wondered if they should wrap it up in an hour, in fact I checked to create sure I wasn't watching the pilot of a series. But instead they just pulled the plug. At the stage where the plot twisted in this direction I literally rolled my eyes.Overall an interesting watch but disappointing in the end.
