Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Drama Mystery - This is a slow-moving and somewhat downbeat science fiction drama. All other known faces in the film aside from Brad Pitt, such as Tommy Lee Jones, Liv Tyler, and Donald Sutherland, have only small roles. Some language, violence, and dark subject matter make the film not appropriate for younger kids though most parents may find this safe for pre-teens and up.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good This isn't the sort of motion picture that will energize those who associate sci-fi with space battles, phaser blasts, and alien invasions. It demands patience and attention. The film develops at it own pace and the resolution, although logical, may not be what some viewers will anticipate. ...it has the soul of an art film

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Thematically dense and visually sumptuous, "Ad Astra” may not work for those seeking an action/adventure thrill ride... ... while this is a deeply philosophical film, there are also traditional action elements... ...Pitt carries the emotional and physical weight in one of the most subtle and graceful performances of his career.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...in his inaugural space movie, Gray creates equally stunning and harrowing sci-fi scenes that keep you as invested in the landscape as Roy's journey. The depth of his (pitt's) performance is just as integral to the film's success as the whiz-bang visuals.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good On his journey, we witness one of the most compelling cinematic visions of where mankind is going. ...the realism and practicality of this world are striking. ...it segues into a psychological thriller with several exciting action sequences... ...Pitt almost never leaves the frame...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 59 moviegoers:
It's a good thing you have our moviegoer reviews and don't have to rely on critic reviews because the critics enjoyed this movie MUCH more than most moviegoers.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One male loved it, but the other two felt it was a good, but not great movie.
ADULTS: For a big budget, big actor, film like "Ad Astra," these reviews are mediocre at best. Only about 15% of the males and females truly loved this movie. Another 30% of males and 20% of females enjoyed "Ad Astra" very much. A large chunk of the remaining 60%, or so, felt it was a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). When you add these to the 20% to 25% who actually disliked this movie, you have some pretty disappointing reviews. Your probability of truly enjoying this movie is fairly low.
