This is right up my wheel house, a long slow Sci-fi movie with lovely shots and a great soundtrack. Brad Pitt is always a watchable performer too.
9/10 personally but I can imagine it's an easy movie to hate.
Also, the tories were stabbing him in the back at some point anyway, this way the incoming leader doesn't get the bounce just before the next election. And also has to be in charge of the incoming cost of living crisis.
