YMMV / Europa Report

  • Idiot Plot: The whole film needs that the owners of the ship never considered to make redundant systems for communications that could be fixed from INSIDE the ship. It also requires that the crew takes their EVA's unnecesarily to the limit not once, but twice against all common sense and against their captain's wishes with the subsequent loss of crew on both counts. Also, they send a ship to face cold weather and the ship fails because a part freezes. It seems that everyone in the mission from designers to astronauts is bent on making something go awry ASAP.
