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

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.
