Atom User Reviews for Asteroid City
Quite possibly might be the absolute worst movie…. I have ever seen. I couldn’t wait for it to be over lol
Weird but in a good way. Its a Wes Anderson movie so if you like his movies (like I do) then you’ll like it just fine. It’s got an interesting structure and that’s the part I liked the most.
The least favorite Wes Anderson film to date. It had some moments but this put me to sleep.
Loved it! Visually beautiful, dry wit and original
Horrible!! We walked out!
I wasn’t a fan. I’m not someone who pays attention to who the director/producers are so I didn’t know what I was in for. Because of the the stars in the line up and trailers and the aesthetic of the movie I was curious. There were parts I liked but slow in the beginning and not ol much of a pick up. More artsy farts for sure
definitely a Wes Anderson movie
It came together in a super special way.
the perfect film. his best.
Such a creative attention grabber
Sometimes it doesn’t matter if you “get it” This is not for people who can’t sit with the discomfort of the absence of the neat and tidy plot and all the answers delivered on a silver platter. It’s a visually stunning film.
It was alright pretty slowly paced. Actors and the camera work carried this film.
great cast and visual effects are creative. But a very weird story to focus on.
It’s a decent movie about a small town getting contact with an alien. Definitely filmed in Wes Anderson’s style. But the message of the movie might be hard to tell.
Alien is so silly 🤭
What a fascinating theatre play movie, I’ve never seen anything like it before!
wowowowowowowowow just wow
Might be my favorite movie of the year, seen it three times so far in theater
Cast and camera work are stellar. The rest WTF!
Meh. Be better if there was even a thread of a story.
Love the 50s-60s b-rate movie aesthetic.
not what I was expecting. it was slow and funny at times. I would wait to watch on DVD. surprisingly the showing I went to was packed.
Interesting watch. Enjoyed the art direction
Everything looks beautiful: sand the colour of peach fluff and skies, a cyan blue.
Because of the structure of the film—the story within the story—none of them feel urgent or especially resonant. There are moments of brilliance both from the performers and from the writing. But they never cohere together into a complete story.
Asteroid City is a top-tier Wes Anderson original that brings back the carefree fun and charm of some of his best works while also turning his own personal conventions on their ear in an attempt to try new things.
