Critic Consensus: Interstellar represents more of the thrilling, thought-provoking, and visually resplendent filmmaking moviegoers have come to expect from writer-director Christopher Nolan, even if its intellectual reach somewhat exceeds its grasp.

Critic Reviews for Interstellar
This is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.
There are many words to describe Interstellar. Entertainment isn't one of them.
"Interstellar" is a grand undertaking, but in shooting for the stars, it loses its footing. It goes to infinity and beyond, when infinity would have been plenty.
Jessica Chastain deserves Best Supporting Actress consideration for her work. One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.
After the first hour, with its poignant depiction of humanity's decline, Interstellar always seems to be rebuilding its momentum, offering plenty to think about but little to hold on to.
Audience Reviews for Interstellar
Even with enormously ambitious ideas and a nice grandiose score, this gorgeous but flawed science fiction movie suffers from heavy-handed, expository dialogue, plot holes and inconsistencies, mainly in the end, which is contrived and we can't make any heads or tails of it.
Visually stunning, and phenomenal performances. But fails to entertain me fully!
Christopher Nolan reaches for the stars in Interstellar, but ends up reaching past them. At a very lengthy 2 hours 45 minutes and a moderately slow pace, Interstellar isn't the easiest stroll through the park. While the scientific plot details require focus and attention, the mystery and interest factor behind it all is more than enough to keep this film from shredding itself to pieces and floating away in various directions, like it nearly does with its final act. The visuals are pleasing, but nothing new when it comes to space. At the same time, there isn't much to overcome the storytelling. Matthew McConaughey actually carries this film on his shoulders, but a good supporting cast of Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, and Jessica Chastain doesn't hurt. Interstellar is a science fiction trek to experience, if only once.
|Prof. Brand:||Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.|
|Cooper:||Newton's third law. You gotta leave something behind.|
|Cooper:||We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars, now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt.|
|TARS:||Step back professor, step back!|
