This science fiction tale (with a moral standpoint and quite a few serious questions about mortality) is done really well. It may not qualify for a classic, but it's still encapsulates a lot of things that we've come to love from these types of movies. That's literally to a point, where you may recognize where some of the inspiration has been drawn from. But it has enough to say on its own too.
It may seem cliché at points in the story and you may feel like you've seen similar things before, but it's tough to be completely original. It's hard enough to be good in what you're trying to say. And this makes a lot of points about living and dying. And being able to accept things. Some things do not translate as good though and it's tough for the main actor to convey certain feelings that none of us have gone through (to that extend). Still more than solid and very gripping
