It's heart is in the right place and I can tell they were really trying to make a good movie but it comes across as another bland YA type film.

And despite the shockingly little screentime said love story gets, it's by far the most compelling thing about the film.

The Space Between Us is what you'd get if you hit John Green between the eyes with a ballpeen hammer and then demanded that he rewrite Stranger in a Strange Land.

Let's save the hemming and hawing, The Space Between Us is terrible. No need to add much else to the sentiment. It is a bad film that you will have a bad time watching. Period.

This is a movie where I found myself wishing that each and every one of the characters met some grisly fate that would allow the credits to roll and myself to leave.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Can't overcome a shaky premise that only gets shakier as the film goes along.
Full Review | Original Score: F

Every bad element about this film whether being the story, the direction, or Gary Oldman's performance doesn't compare to Allan Loeb's screenplay.

The Space Between Us leaves many bigger-picture questions and ideas on the table and unexplored. It's a film of complete missed opportunities and bad plot decisions.
November 4, 2017
Unfortunately, its noble efforts are hampered by troubled beginnings, which spiral into a very problematic third act that ultimately self-destructs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

As 'The Space Between Us' resorts to generic pandering by catering to its core demographic of teens and young adults looking for a date movie around Valentine's Day.

[Britt Robertson and Asa Butterfield 's] chemistry is also non-existent, making their on-screen romance even harder to swallow.

Mostly I was just trying not to fall asleep.

The Space Between Us is terrible at explaining itself in any other way than 'Gary Oldman is a genius space inventor!'
March 23, 2017
[Director] Peter Chelsom ( ... ) keeps the movie firmly grounded in maudlin mediocrity.
February 6, 2017
Chelsom attempts to hurdle the screenplay's cavalier attitude towards science with mixed results.
February 2, 2017
Unable to bring anything real or palpable to the artificial heart beating at the center of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Ultimately, this is just a bad movie about a Martian and his girlfriend playing hide-and-seek from some space cops.
