Note: Spoilers in the article linked below.
Here are some comments on the scientific goofs in this movie, which I agree.
Thats a good article. They really were the stupidist crew to ever leave the Earths atmosphere. If it wasnt for the android, im pretty sure they would of crashed into the moon on take-off.
Heres a couple i noticed.
So, they spend 1 trillion pounds, and 2 years travelling in the hope they find intelligent life. They reach the planet, and instantly find objects that arent naturally formed.
So.... instead of spending a bit of time making a plan, they rush out of the ship, that fast, that the doors on the lunar vehicle have a countdown from 10 to 1 and some of them only just make it in time.
Another one.... they take the humanoid head back to the ship and think "yeah we will make it come back into life", without any thought whatsoever to the dangers of it.
The Android decide to kill one of the scientists with no info on why he would want to do it.
A great example of a mis-labelled dumbed down action movie. It didnt even feel like a sci-fi to me.
