I like quiet moments in big action/sci-fi type movies. The family sitdown at Avengers Tower in _Age of Ultron_ is probably the best part of that movie. The contemplative moments of John Wick are what make that character who he is. What is a little more odd, however, is when a quiet, reflective drama, is broken up by moments of big action/sci-fi type sequences. _Ad Astra_ is certainly the latter. The majority of _Ad Astra’s_ runtime is taken up by Brad Pitt narrating environmental cosmic shots, or having quiet conversations about his father, or his mood. Then suddenly! Space pirates! It’s unusual, and I don’t know that it really works. _Ad Astra_ is something different, and if that’s all you’re looking for, by all means, give it a chance, but I don’t know if I’d personally call it very good.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
This movie had some decent actors, sadly the story was disappointing and quite slow. This would be a good option for those nights when you just can’t fall asleep.
A series of unfortunate space-related events
Ad Astra had its moments but it was underwhelming and a bit light on hard science. The low/no gravity seemed to be poorly and inconsistently portrayed. It definitely seemed like it was trying to be more meaningful and worthy than I think it was. And it had typical tropes that seemed lazy and unnecessary. I enjoyed it enough and the sets, costumes and props were quite wonderful of course but it was ultimately quite forgettable and nonsensical.I’m sure it was trying to say something about the mental journey of the main character rather than his space-faring one, but I don’t know what it was. Could also be called “A series of unfortunate space-related events”.
Almost an insult to the genre
I’m a big fan of Sci-fi movies, when they actually make sense… As visually impressive as it might be at times, Ad Astra tries to be a psychological drama set in space. Only that it fails as a psychological drama and it’s almost an insult to the space Sci-fi genre.
You clearly see a movie failing when a grandiose or highly abstract topic revolves around the personal stories of a character or two, it makes it feel “cheap” or sloppy (yes, I’m thinking Interstellar also). If you place the main story in any other setting, some details change but the main idea can be left untouched, so is this a Sci-fi movie? Is this a space movie? And if it’s not, why is it wrapped up like one?
As some reviews describe, the main story is unconvincing at best, with a very sloppy script. Decisions feel forced for the sake of suspense, the journey totally predictable, there is no depth in the character construction. However the worse part, which I consider almost an insult to the genre, is the message that can be read between the lines: “believe and do not question”. It’s almost like a bored priest in the Vatican decided to sabotage a Sci-fi movie. I gave this a bit of thought and I can’t remember any other Sci-fi movie being as anti-Sci-fi as this one.
It gets 3 stars for the visuals and Brad Pitt’s effort, but it could have (should have) been so so so much better!
