In all exterior shots surrounding astronomical objects (stars, etc) are displayed as if traveling at non-relativistic speeds. At their stated speed of 0.5c they would be experiencing very obvious aberrations, namely the compression of light wavelengths in the direction of travel (blue-shifting), and lengthening of wavelengths behind them (red-shifting) as they get further away.

Professional film critics are stupid. That is the conclusion you must reach after watching this movie. I was not expecting much after reading the uniformly negative critical reviews. But I was surprised. The movie is plausible. It is more than plausible, it is realistic. And the acting is so eminent that you are there yourself trying to decide what you would do if you awoke on a fully autonomous spaceship trying to figure out what is going on.
Granted, there are no alien horror creatures, no protracted fast-action sequences, no superficial technical nonsense to cover a thin plot. Maybe this is what the critics were missing.
There is only beautiful scenes, eminent acting, a plausible plot and a surprising ending. But that was enough for me.
So go watch this movie and decide for yourself how implausibly stupid the film critics are.
