Agreed that spin gravity is the apparent source of gravity on the ship. However, there are several inconsistencies with its portrayal. The hallway where Jim welds and Gus walks have the "2001: A Space Odyssey" curvature. However, the dining area, the lobby/atrium, and the bar are all relatively large areas with no apparent curvature at all. Additionally, the windows of the ship are on the walls of rooms, when in fact, with spin gravity, they should be on the floors. We get the same presentation looking into the ship from outside - the exterior windows are on room walls, not room floors. Further, the porthole at the end of the swimming pool should be at the bottom of the pool, not the end, and when Aurora is swimming and the "gravity" is lost, even with some magical artificial gravity force that just quit, the water should then migrate towards the porthole, not float weightless.

I'm a forty-something male and I loved this movie. I didn't quite know what to expect, saw some less than glowing reviews, but decided to favor the more positive reviews and head to the theater. I'm glad I did.
If you like science fiction, this has it. If you like romance, this has it. If you like excellent special effects, this has it. If you like a good story, yes, this movie has that too.
This isn't a Star-Trek style high-octane Sci-Fi action movie. It's a solid blend of drama, romance, action, intrigue, stunning visuals, occasional suspense, human psychology, and for me was a winning combination.
