ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review Solaris gives us Soderbergh unbound, freewheeling and self-indulgent as he follows his muse. Trouble is, very much like the space station in which most of the "action" takes places, Solaris ultimately collapses into elaborate swirls of impenetrable gas.

Review The number of "thinking" science fiction films is small, and most are produced on small budgets for start-up directors. The first-rate production values and A-list star make Solaris an exception-and a rewarding one, at that. This is the first film I have seen in a long time to make me feel some of the things I experienced while watching 2001. Solaris is neither as effective nor as ambitious as Kubrick's masterpiece, but it's still a compelling cinematic experience for those who are willing to abandon themselves to the unforced, measured rhythms of an issues-based motion picture.

Review When I saw Tarkovsky's original film, I felt absorbed in it, as if it were a sponge. It was slow, mysterious, confusing, and I have never forgotten it. Soderbergh's version is more clean and spare, more easily readable, but it pays full attention to the ideas and doesn't compromise. Tarkovsky was a genius, but one who demanded great patience from his audience as he ponderously marched toward his goals. The Soderbergh version is like the same story freed from the weight of Tarkovsky's solemnity. And it evokes one of the rarest of movie emotions, ironic regret.

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune It's a lovely, eerie film that casts an odd, rapt spell.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone A mind-bender in the best sense of the word: The spell it casts follows you all the way home.
