Despite visual effects, which were not bad, clearly there was some kind of budget for this movie, this like any modern Shamalan piece of crap (yup I know he was not the director) suffered from a few terminal illnesses. Terminal logical falicies were abundant, the 'artistic' direction actually gets in the way of enjoying the movie, and Mathew McCantbelievetheycasthim should never be in another space movie, ever, seriously, never.
I don't believe the protagonist is who the character is supposed to be for one second as Mathew Mcknuckldragger hams up the screen with a performance so bad you can smell it from the next theatre over. The only performance worse than McCantact's is the guy they find on the planet, who should be credited as Alan Smithee to preserve his reputation.
The artistic direction, is masterbatory. The director's head is so far up his *#$@ that even dialogue is drowned out by one of the worst musical scores I have heard in years. The visuals are pointless, over the top, and replace any real attempt at story telling.
There are so many logical holes in the story, even without the flimsy silly basic time paradox at the heart of the thing, one does not need a science education to see that none of it makes much sense. If one has taken anything beyond grade 4 science, your alarm bells will be ringing rather loudly throughout the movie. It is clear that the Nolanator knows all sciences about as well as M. Night Shamaladingdong.
The vast majority of oxygen producing organisms are not the basic cash crops. A blight in one crop such as wheat, is not going to take out potatoes, millet, corn, barley, legumes, and so on, not to metion enough of the trees, grasses, algea, and other plants to shift atmospheric O2. The earth is not concerned one way or another with the survival of or presence of any species on it, it is not sentient and lacks any agency. Can humans fuck up the future to a point that makes modern civilization no longer viable, yes. Can the planet decide it no longer wants us here? No.
The Nolanator does not know enough about space to make a movie in space. His understanding of orbital mechenics, propulsion, and basic spaceflight is laughable. Even forgiving the big lie of a deus ex machinus stable navigable worm hole (I can easily forgive one big lie) there is no way that a three planet system with a dead sun which is now a singularity would be remotely appealing as a home to any scientist, ever. Why are the planets still there after the star became a singularity with atmospheres intact, orbiting close enough to the event horizon to suffer massive time dilation but otherwise great? Why is there sunlight on all the planets after the star that used to provide them with light stopped fusing and collapsed into a singularity and any mass, light or heat that it could give off are on the other side of an event horizon from which nothing can escape except the nightmarish acting of Mathew Mcpleasedontshowyourfaceinthisgenreagain. Sure black holes radiate Hawking radiation as things pass over the event horizon... but this is not what one would consider a stable source of photosynthetically active light to grow crops by. And what crops are they going to grow if all thier crop species have a fatal blight that made them extinct decades ago?
Sorry I would not recomend this movie to anyone, ever. Wait, I lied, Mathew and Alan Smithee go watch this together, hang your heads in shame, and seriously consider your carreer path.
