Goofs

  • The whole premise of drilling into the Earth and building massive rocket engines to move it is patently ridiculous, even in the realm of science fiction. Cartoon fiction maybe. The whole technical aspects of such an endeavor are completely glossed over in 5 seconds with zero detail given as to the amount of energy or energy storage required to move the Earth out of the Suns orbit, travel through space or even stop when it arrives at its destination.

The visuals prove crucial, as Qi makes for a weak central character.

Despite the production’s team of scientist consultants, the physics in The Wandering Earth is probably a lot of hooey. But the film’s world building, which takes up much of its first third, is undeniably novel and fascinating. Rarely does a film brag such a technocratic heart.

No matter how familiar the plot beats feel, that level of attention not just to functional special effects, but to outright beauty, makes The Wandering Earth memorable.
