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.

Honestly think Ryan gosling or Toby Maguire could have done better. Movie was just weird. Where’s your dad? He’s in space. Go get him. Ok, goes and gets him. Hey dad come home. No son , Where’s your dad? I had to let him go. You traveled that far and you let him go. Yeah

Slow movie. Very disappointed with story line. Pitt was good but the rest of the show & cast really sucked. Save your money, it not worth going to see

Was misleading in previews. Super boring and took forever to get anywhere with any details. Both myself and my fiancé almost fell asleep during it and we are avid movie lovers.

This is an original movie. Before I saw it, I had low expectations in Pitt's first science fiction film, but after seeing watching how well Pitt embodies his character's intense feeling of loneliness and the void he's trying to fill through the constant push into outer space. Ultimately he's able to fill that void in the end by losing apart of himself.

Definitely a slow movie but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was entertained the entire way through. I'm a sucker for space though.

For the bulk of its two-hour-and-two-minute running time, I watched in a state of hypnotized delight.

While Gray may have told basically this same story before, Ad Astra’s cosmic setting makes it even more poignant, because it puts into such sharp relief how small each of us is against the vastness of space, and how our time in that space is the most finite blip possible when compared with the totality of cosmic history.

Though principally a meditative experience, Ad Astra also makes room for some superb suspense sequences, resulting in a thought-provoking film with life-or-death stakes.
