I actually was thinking halfway through that the film was rather boring. It was just visuals and nothing else.
Almost everything you wrote here is wrong. It is probably the most realistic space movie ever made, widely praise by astronauts for crying out loud. "suspension of disbelief"? Even the nit-picky neckbearded nerds who pointed out the couple things that the director reluctantly had to do to make the story work, prefaced it with "don't get me wrong, its a great movie, but..."

The five poor schmucks who quickly jotted out negative reviews before the 98% avalanche on rottentomatoes are now figuratively in hiding, praying no one notices.
