Critic Reviews for Ad Astra

All Critics (377) | Top Critics (81)

Brad Pitt is nothing short of phenomenal in this remarkable, poignant and visually arresting film from James Gray.

October 18, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

There's larger social commentary here, but the root of the drama is about a man learning to embrace the emotions he's kept buried for years.

September 30, 2019 | Full Review…

For most of its running time, Ad Astra amounts to a rather somber and sterile two-hour orbit.

September 27, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film's Latin title means "to the stars." But the satisfactions of James Gray's project lie in a special branch of astronomy-not the study of planets, but of the supernova at the center of "Ad Astra": Brad Pitt.

September 27, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a very somber and moody film. The atmosphere is achieved beautifully.

September 25, 2019 | Rating: A | Full Review…

McBride is a man living without feeling, and Pitt's performance is beautifully restrained, expressing whole continents of emotion with the furrow of an eyebrow.
