I think that definitely the DC fixes some issues because it strips out some of the never-ending effects shots.....................but for me the film doesn't have any tension or sense of the emergency that it's supposed to be.
I don't think you need to see panic on Earth (did anyone outside of a handful of people on Earth even know, one wonders!) as such, but I think the film lacks a sense that this could be catastrophic if they fail. Even though we know that Earth is meant to be in danger from the probe.
The soundtrack is excellent though.
