Atom User Reviews for Ad Astra
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.
Visually beautiful but the plot is just an astronaut with daddy issues, ehhh
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
Waste of time
exploration isn't just in space. thought provoking about coming grips to the human condition
Save your time and money ...!
liked the message in the end, but the journey was too long
Lost 2+ hours of my life.
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.
it is not action packed...but very thought provoking. nice change up from normal space exploration movies
Definitely a slow movie but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was entertained the entire way through. I'm a sucker for space though.
Great movie. Expect it to be a great story with an awesome space setting!
Slow paced but an amazing movie if you pay attention.
Great movie to see or rent !
I liked the action, but hated the wishy washy introspective bs
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?
Could have been a great story. Missed the mark.
A waste of time and money
Combines the vastness of space travel with the intimate, small, innately human emotional bond between a father and son. Beautiful film
One of the worst movies I see
Good idea that was horribly executed
Good for the first half, but really stopped making sense and because kinda pointless.
Not what I expected plot wise but it was some of Brad’s finest acting
Really good flick. Bit of art and story telling.
Although it was not a fast paced movie. It was heart pounding and intense. I thought it to be,thought provoking and original and I really enjoyed it.
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!
I fell asleep. To be fair though, I was very tired.
Felt like the story could have been so much more, but it just fell flat.
Brad Pitt was great
Expected more. A little hokey at times.
The pitster has done better.
Plot could have been more compelling.
Visual are good but ultimately it's just a completely unnecessary and tedious journey by a man with daddy issues.
Ad Astra? More like a Disastra...
I love SciFi that makes you think and this is one of those movies. Great performance by Brad Pitt. The story and effects are great.
One of the greatest space movies of all time!
Sub-par writing, terrible directing, and what a waste of 2 talented actors
It can be done in 15 mins movie instead for 2 hrs -_-
Modern version of Apocalypse Now?!
Good movie but ain’t what critics say lol
Long trip to outer space with no pay off at the end.
good up until the ending...
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.
