Interstellar Reviews

Overall, Interstellar looks nice but ultimately lacks substance. Nolan essentially loses his way by going to space.
July 30, 2019
Preposterous, pseudointellectual, poorly constructed, clichéd, impenetrably masculine, goofy and possessed of an indecipherable ending, Interstellar is the mother of all misfires.
February 2, 2019
A contrived science fiction film without authenticity, emotionally and narratively.
January 25, 2019
Literally reaches for the stars -- and comes up short. Despite the best efforts of a talented cast and writer/director Christopher Nolan, this film just can't overcome a script with black hole-size plot craters.

What is wrong with the movie - some of the messages are lathered on so thickly... yet the Nolan brothers assume that all viewers have a keen grasp of quantum physics, relativity, time dimensions and gravity.
March 17, 2018
Nolan's refreshing love affair with self-determination goes too far.
October 18, 2017
Big Ideas served in a movie that is ultimately unsatisfying.

Nolan does (to his credit) and his failure to engage us as fully as he intends... takes us to infinity and beyond, but it's likely you cared more about Buzz Lightyear than you will about anyone in Interstellar.

Naturally, Nolan's desire to unite high and low culture doesn't always pay off, yet even when he gets pretentious, I don't hate him for it. Better a filmmaker who fails while overreaching than one who has a hit with Transformers.

Interstellar, though ambitious and thrilling at points, is too complicated and doesn't reach its full potential.
February 28, 2017
Interstellar has more of absolutely everything: more plot, more (stupid) words, more acting and much more bad acting (Anne Hathaway) than nearly all the year's films put together, as well as the most idiotic storyline of the decade.
June 6, 2016
Perhaps it would have been wiser to trim back on several of the ideas and present a more cohesive, not to mention coherent, story.
May 11, 2016
Too literal-minded, too conspicuous to leave us with a sense of doubt and apprehension.
March 2, 2016
When the essential property of film forces us to believe in an illusion, [Nolan] has become the least-spiritual director in contemporary cinema.
February 26, 2016
I can't remember an apocalyptic film that's taken less interest in this planet as it's destroyed.
October 3, 2015
This is a film rife with mistakes that even a rookie director wouldn't make. How this ended up being made by Nolan blows my mind.
July 14, 2015
Nolan is a well-appointed mainstream fabulist who uses a great deal of money and technology to no great artistic purpose.
July 1, 2015
...after building up the drama of personal sacrifice, it feels too much like a cheat no matter how many endings are tacked on before the credits...
June 9, 2015
It's just a really weird film, the strangest and most misguided fake-Spielberg picture since Super 8.
March 30, 2015
Interstellar is a frustratingly flawed film that reaches for the stars but winds up lost in space.
