This was a good, one of a kind documentary movie touring to the edge of the Universe.The graphics and visuals were high quality, though a bit cheesy especially for how bright the milky way looked from our Solar System.The planets are crisp and clear and the exoplanets are good impressions of what they might look like up close.It has stunning visuals and a story which teaches you whether we're alone or not.It also teaches us that we live in the best known spot.The soundtrack especially is amazing, it reminded me of Avatar, and this and that were made in almost the same date, so I see the connection.I even get the genre.And speaking of soundtracks, when I saw this, I wondered if James Horner (who died in a plane crash in 2015) composed this score, but I found that disputed.Alpha Centauri was also shown in this, but there could've been a potential to have Polyphemus & Pandora on it(though unfortunately this was made a tad too early).And now that Proxima Centauri b was discovered, this show needs a major update, plus the MESSENGER spacecraft and Cassini are over with, so...They added a bunch of events to entertain us and make it remarkable.The depth of this show makes us wonder how far can we look and the graphics make us think how could they make such a thing like that.Of course the black holes could use improvement, now that Interstellar showed us what a black hole really looks like up close.We got to see impressions of what the big bang theory was like, though I've seen many different impressions.Alec Baldwin was the perfect narrator for this movie, he does the U.S. version (this), whereas Sean Pertwee does the U.K. version (which I'm not from).If there were an updated version at 60 or 120 FPS, then it would be a top notch masterpiece and would be a classic movie.It gave us new perspectives of our known universe and depths that even telescopes could not achieve.It gives us ideas about our future.One day, we will all die, the world will end, and we'll be in our Sun's menu.But like Alec Baldwin said, we should rejoice and realize how important our matter is in the universe and how it's within us.

Good & great, but outdated nowadaysReviewed bytridad-58367Vote: 5/10
This was more drama and Fear based Programming (Propaganda) than it was a documentary of Science. You may like it, depending on your previous conditioning.
Well... it was definitely interesting, although it doesn't really says anything new to me. Maybe I've watched too many documentaries already. The other comments about this movie emphasize that this is not a documentary that presents the knowledge of a brilliant scientist but more like a tour and in their opinion it is a good thing. I have to disagree. I think if someone takes the time to watch a 90 minutes documentary about the universe then he/she really wants to learn about the universe but instead you will see a lot of animations (by the way some of them are speculative like the big bang and some of them are plain dumb like the "high speed travel") and images taken by high resolution telescopes, which are indeed beautiful but it's just not enough. For example I think one of everyone's favorite topics are the black holes. The movie gives only a shallow description of them, no explanations just a few images. And what makes it even worse is that the movie says that in a black hole the laws of physics breaks down (I watched it in Hungarian translation so it might not say exactly like this in the original language) but that's completely wrong! It breaks down the laws of Newtonian physics that's for sure and even quantum mechanics but that doesn't mean that a black hole is not governed by the laws of physics, we just don't understand that physics yet.
Anyway, if you are satisfied with Hubble Space Telescope images then watch this movie but if you want to really learn you should check out the TTC video called "An Introduction to Astronomy", it is a 50 hours course where Professor Alex Filippenko explains to you everything you ever wanted to know about astronomy and cosmology.
