Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Atlas’s dad is a great character, even though he’s never on stage. Wanting your ashes shot off as fireworks is about as eccentric as you can get.

The plot is solid enough; Atlas wants the truth, and eventually she finds it.

Con: The ending doesn’t quite add up. If the aliens really wanted the planet, they’d just send a team to take it. What difference could a single person make?
