From the Daily Dot
Orbiter 9 starts as a compelling sci-fi piece, then the plot kicks in and it becomes dull. Helena has lived alone in a space station for 20 years by the time repairman Alex visits for a maintenance appointment. The two fall for each other – of course – and once they make their big break from the station, Orbiter 9 becomes a rote chase movie. While Alex shows Helena the real world, the Big Bad Scientists are busy tracking her down, resulting in a half-romance, half-sci-fi thriller that fails on both fronts. It's a shame because the story has the heft to carry a better movie, but Orbiter 9 is ultimately another misfire for Netflix.
