All Critics (21) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (12)

  • Painfully dull and boring movie. This science fiction movie does everything but serve as a relevant take on the genre. [Full review in Spanish].

    February 18, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • When shooting for otherworldly transcendence, solid rather than spectacular is not enough.

    June 29, 2016 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • While the concept yields some moderate claustrophobic tension, it doesn't offer an outlet for the protagonist to provide an emotional hook.

    June 17, 2016 | Full Review…
  • I wish I could figure out what this would-be trippy space odyssey wants to say. I was hoping for sci-fi philosophy. I got nothing but lifeless nonsense.

  • Mark Strong's work in 'Approaching the Unknown' deserves high praise. He shows the ability to carry an entire movie almost alone!

    June 5, 2016 | Full Review…
  • There's value in watching a man come face-to-face with the triviality of his own existence, and see it as an opportunity for greater exploration.
