This review is from: Sol (Amazon Instant Video)
I've never been much of a Sci-Fi buff but might be a convert after watching "Sol". It was off to a bit of a slow start but picked up its pace as the movie unfolded. I thought most of the young actors did a great job of portraying their characters although there were some deadpan moments in the script. The scenery was beautiful and It had some nice touches, such as Hal's flute music expanding into stereo sound with the sunrise, and the discovery that the ocean was fresh water. With vague sightings of the creatures, it reminded me of the old Sci-Fi movies where the shadows, and our imaginations provided most of the goosebumps. It was so refreshing to see a low budget, low key film that held my interest to the end without relying on tons of special effects.
