I feel like the general public is not going to like this film because it is thought provoking. It says a lot about the industry that it is out at the same time as a movie about gangster strippers and that's getting the buzz. In any case, this movie is visually amazing. It is smart and doesn't pander to the lowest common denominator. If you're a space buff it will be hard to find many things wrong with the film even though they take liberties with some of the physics. If you liked Gravity or Interstellar, you'll like this movie. Go see it.

Aside from verging on the one-note, that focus constricts the very linear, very self-contained Ad Astra, a taut but inflexible chamber piece in a genre given to symphony.

Ad Astra is beautiful, contemplative, and loaded with meaning — not an action movie, but one that leaves you with plenty to ponder.

Ad Astra (Latin for “To the Stars”) has dazzling eye candy and reasonable extrapolations of what near future space colonization might look like...But like too many imitation “Space Odysseys,” it flunks that most basic test applied to science fiction of this nature. It doesn’t make us care what happens, and I, for one, don’t care to see it again.
