Ad Astra, set in the near future, gives the father-son dynamic literally astronomical dimensions.
September 19, 2019
Like its protagonist, 'Ad Astra' reaches high, but only intermittently hits its target. It's certainly watchable, but unlike its twin models is unlikely to achieve classic status.
September 19, 2019
It's a tasty idea for a space thriller, and Gray, with a great deal of help from his charismatic star and his cinematographer, Hoyte Van Hoytema, has produced a rich, suspenseful, intelligent outer-space epic.
September 19, 2019
It's a well-made, provocative movie. And in a great big universe searching for intelligent content, one would hope there's still room for that.
September 19, 2019
'Ad Astra' plays like a critique of its blockbuster brethren - films that marshal the limitless budgets and resources of the studio system, all at the service of filmmakers with nothing whatsoever to say, or feel.
September 19, 2019
Stellar acting, along with the pretty pictures, overrides the film's structural limitations.
September 19, 2019
Ad Astra succeeds as mildly entertaining 'soft sci-fi', even if it fails to land a substantial existential punch.
September 19, 2019
For the most part, the film's heaviness is a virtue, even when its director, James Gray, slips into grandiosity.
September 19, 2019
An exquisitely forlorn space epic where the spectacle elegantly serves Gray's interest in human ambition, desire, and frailty.
September 19, 2019
Brad Pitt knows that a more austere and contained performance is essential when facing such an overwhelming scenery. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 19, 2019
Toxic masculinity, daddy issues and mankind's battle with existentialism make up the poetry of James Gray's magnificent, beautiful space odyssey.
September 19, 2019
The stakes in "Ad Astra" feel more theoretical than urgent. Pitt, however, manages some genuinely moving revelations of character under duress.
September 19, 2019
There's a particular madness to 'Ad Astra' that causes you to look inward and ruminate on your own dealings with pain, shame and regret. It teaches a lot about humanity, fatherhood and masculinity.
September 19, 2019
Brad Pitt and visionary writer-director James Gray concoct a cerebral sci-fi film about fathers and sons that's absolutely enthralling.
September 19, 2019
An accomplishment of contemplative science fiction that is felt in your core as much as it pours wonderment in your eyes.
September 19, 2019
Straddled between the splashy demands of blockbuster filmmaking and the methodical tendencies of its singular filmmaker, Ad Astra excels even as it can't quite decide what it wants to be.
September 19, 2019
Not only is Pitt tremendously watchable and utterly convincing as McBride, but likely the most traditionally masculine hero you're going to see in a film that takes a strong point of view about the follies of traditionally masculine heroes.
September 19, 2019
Ad Astra [is] an existential space epic with the lofty aspirations of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the common sense to enliven proceedings with moon pirates and feral zero-gravity apes.
September 19, 2019
Adjust expectations accordingly, and the picture has a real mesmeric power.
September 19, 2019
Gray usa sus magníficos visuales y emocionantes secuencias en el espacio como vehículo para reflexionar y no al revés
