If you told me a year ago, that I would be watching a teen romance I would have laughed. That’s not my genre and usually I steer away from them. Fast forward to 2017 and, so far, my time in the theaters has been just a mile short of awesome. The last three movies alone (“Resident Evil the Final Chapter,” “Split,” and “Underworld: Blood War”) have all been major disappointments. I briefly struggled between “The Space Between Us” or “Rings.” Something told me to go off the norm and see “The Space Between Us.” That something was right.

If I had one word to describe this movie, it would be “safe.” It felt as if the screenwriters wanted to play it safe and not think too much outside the box here. Having said that, a love story between a boy on Mars and a girl on Earth is unique for the teen set.
