This de­riv­a­tive SF ef­fort is part Moon, part be­low-par Twi­light Zone episode.

Bran­don Routh leads a team of four as­tro­nauts un­der­go­ing a 400 day-long Earth-based sim­u­la­tion in­tended to ready them for space travel. But things go awry when they start hal­lu­ci­nat­ing...

Clichéd char­ac­ter­i­sa­tions and hum­drum per­for­mances (there’s a rea­son why Su­per­man Re­turns didn’t make Routh a break­out star) drag things down, and Matt Oster­man’s script can’t reach the heights of its lofty in­flu­ences. Steve O’Brien

“I re­ally fancy a ba­nana right now.”
