With all the rampant think pieces questioning the probability of every science fiction film that comes out, it's comforting to across a movie that doesn't really claim to have any of the answers.

Interstellar, though ambitious and thrilling at points, is too complicated and doesn't reach its full potential.

March 21, 2017 | Full Review…

It's his 'White Album,' overlong and overwritten, corny and self-important, and also a great movie. And yes, it can be all of those things at once.

This is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.

There are many words to describe Interstellar. Entertainment isn't one of them.

This is not only a tremendously exciting space adventure... It's also a rich and thoughtful meditation on time and space and gravity.

Audience Reviews for Interstellar

Even with enormously ambitious ideas and a nice grandiose score, this gorgeous but flawed science fiction movie suffers from heavy-handed, expository dialogue, plot holes and inconsistencies, mainly in the end, which is contrived and we can't make any heads or tails of it.

Visually stunning, and phenomenal performances. But fails to entertain me fully!

Christopher Nolan reaches for the stars in Interstellar, but ends up reaching past them. At a very lengthy 2 hours 45 minutes and a moderately slow pace, Interstellar isn't the easiest stroll through the park. While the scientific plot details require focus and attention, the mystery and interest factor behind it all is more than enough to keep this film from shredding itself to pieces and floating away in various directions, like it nearly does with its final act. The visuals are pleasing, but nothing new when it comes to space. At the same time, there isn't much to overcome the storytelling. Matthew McConaughey actually carries this film on his shoulders, but a good supporting cast of Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, and Jessica Chastain doesn't hurt. Interstellar is a science fiction trek to experience, if only once.
