Its awe-inspiring first half delivers the majesty of outer space... until the protagonist's headspace starts to eclipse the fun. [Full review in Spanish]

Fully a fable, a chamber piece within outer space, Ad Astra is flint and lyric... James Gray's marvel of a paranoid thriller, antagonistically serene, is an uncommon attainment of visual and sonic beauty, ready and ripe to be madly misunderstood.

Easier to admire than adore.

Ad Astra is one of those movies that probably needs to be seen twice in order to fully absorb its themes. Fortunately, it's something you'd want to see more than once.
September 20, 2019
In a mesmerizing, minimalist performance, Pitt forms the gravitational center of a film that takes its place in the firmament of science fiction films by fearlessly quoting classics of the genre (as well as those outside it).

While the space travel aesthetic is one of unfussy functionality, its cinematography is sublime.

Brad Pitt hurtles through space as astronaut Roy McBride in this visually impressive psychological sci fi drama. The pace is slow, deliberate and totally mesmerizing.

The search for a father, son and possibly holy spirit lies at the heart of Ad Astra, an introspective drama set in the farthest reaches of the solar system.

As reductive as it sounds, Apocalypse Now in Space isn't all that inaccurate a description.

A welcome return to blockbuster leads for Brad Pitt, who carries the whole film, but such a shame it didn't go the extra mile to keep the interest levels up.

This unique movie is, by turns, a cerebral and compelling experience. Don't go thinking you'll be getting anything like Matt Damon's The Martian.

Ad Astra is moving, intense and meaningful and a solid mystery thriller.
