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

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.

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.

The story is basically about a son trying to rectify his dysfunction relationship with his father, cast in space. I don’t think you need to go to outer space to deal with these problems. How about “Malcolm in the Middle” or something that doesn’t involve special effects and huge CG expense?

Combines the vastness of space travel with the intimate, small, innately human emotional bond between a father and son. Beautiful film

I thought the movie was a good watch. I just felt like there were parts of the movie where they tried to follow logic and physics, then there were parts that they completely threw all that out the window to make the story fit. I did see it in DBox, and it was cool getting to feel it as he traveled through the atmosphere.

I expected this to be more entertaining and thought provoking but left the theater scratching my head. Too many holes in the storyline. Gliding through space like he's hang gliding on Earth?!! GTFOH!

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.
