Crap form start to finish.
Space movie with a son finding his father. Good, but not great. Slow moving sunday type of movie.
I did not believe the negative reviews that I had seen about this movie. I went to see the feature today. I was wrong. I should have believed the bad reviews.
Very slow, not a sci-fi adventure, but Brad Pitt is still great to look at!
Awful -- Slept through most of it.
I am an avid movie watcher and have been all my life. I've never cared about movie reviews. If I want to see it I will go and see it for myself. This movie wasted 2 of my favorite actors in a plot that was slow and hard to understans. Tommy Lee Jones barely had any screen time. I'm sorry but this was a waste of money.
Was good, it's an actual story and not some sci fi adventure. Just remember going in that it's not a sci fi spectacle but a story of a man's journey to find his father. Was not bored at all the entire film. To many action junkies in these reviews saying it's boring cause it wasn't jammed full of cg and explosions, don't listen to them unless those are the types of films you like.
What a brilliant and thoughtful movie about the ties that bind us and familial bonds that go deep into one's soul. Don't go in expecting an action packed version of THE MARTIAN but if you lean towards intellectual, thought provoking movies like SOLARIS or even INTERSTELLAR, this might be right up your alley. I could have used less voice over narration but shot beautifully with an ending that really moved me. Will definitely see again!
Boring and long. Fought to stay awake.
Apocalypse Now was an obvious inspiration for the writers of this pretentious garbage containing Brad Pitt's face and voice as the main events. No story and I can't remember the ending.
Plotless,boring and too long! Almost asked for my money back!
Movie was silly and unrealistic
Clumsy drama about space exploitation with over wrought narration by Brad Pitt. The sentimentality was poorly presented and the acting was stilted. Brad Pitt cannot carry a movie by himself. Yes, he is eye candy for women and he can strut like a tough guy but he does not have the acting skills to carry a movie like this. Bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was a slow, boring movie that made no sense. The writing was awful, the story line, tedious, and the acting, dull and predictable. I question why anyone would make a movie this bad. Why bother??
super BORING, walked out, waste of money
An action movie for the mind.
Most exciting movie for the year 2019. Brad and the special effects are Oscar worthy. Don't be side tracked by the few bad reviews of those who don't understand film making of the genre of science fiction. Science given some serious thought here.
Can't see the point of the few good reviews from people who try to find some deep philosophical meaning to this disaster. I simply hate being insulted by producers and directors who think the viewers are too dumb to see the glaring flaws in their movies. The laws of physics take a serious beating in this flop, and from very early on, to the point that it is impossible to recover from the initial impression of being taken for an idiot by people who live off our gullibility! Boring yarn! I'm a big fan of Brad's, but not in this flop. Save your money for another movie!
This movie stinks out loud. Very slow,no plot and stupid ending. I want a refund!!!
Very slow movie... done deliberately to convey a very profound existential message that touches upon the meaning of life & dehumanization
Besides being a slow/boring movie, it also does not embrace the laws of physics well. in the opening scene, we see the astronaut walking down a space ladder on the Space Station. Keep in mind the space station is in orbit..... but as the bloke takes a misstep down the ladder, the next scene shows him falling down fast towards the earth. But how? if the space station is in orbit, then only micro gravity should be present. If so, then what made the astronaut fall? Gravity? If so, then why doesn't the space station also fall towards the earth. Once i noticed this attention to detail failure, then i began to look for other incidents of breaches in the laws of physics. Next thing i began noticing were all the very loud explosions in space. Again, but how? Noise needs an atmosphere to propagate. But if in space, then no air, and hence no "explosions". Once i began noticing these failures, i couldn't stop. We ended up walking out of the show mid way through.
Very boring took forever to get to the point had to walk out. Hopefully they had more action near the end
it was one of the better deep spce movies I have seen in a long time I do not KNOW what the title means though ?
Booooooorrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnngggggggggggg!!!!!!!!!!!!! We walked out half way through. No action, no balls, no nothing! Save your cash and avoid this show... ...you can thank me later!
This is an amazing movie! A totally different take on the space genre. The cinematography is beautiful. Brad Pitt did an outstanding job. Anyone here who gave it 3 or fewer stars obviously has a limited understanding of the world, universe, existentialism and appreciation of the unknown.,
Terrible movie! Why? Boring!
Terrible movie, couldn't wait for it to be over....its all Brad Pitt working out his daddy issues in space. Boring, slow. Do not recommend Go see Downtown Abbey or Rambo.
Went to see this movie as I was curious about all the talk about how good Brad Pitt is in it....what? Also am a sci fi fan. This was the slowest, worst sci fi movie ever. It is NOT oscar worthy. It is Brad Pitt playing Brad Pitt. Terrible, won't get that 2 hours back. Don't waste your money.
Far too much of Brad's face.
want a good nap, this is the perfect movie for you.
Brad Pitt is good in this movie. but movie itself is very slow moving. My teenagers aged 13 and 15 fell asleep.
Waste of time and money.
I generally don’t mind slow-moving movies, but if you ever needed a sleeping pill just watch this movie. It’ll put you to sleep in no time flat!
Boring, nearly all very implausible scenarios at every turn!
Those that found this one outstanding like sitting in libraries reading Shakespeare. Good lord. Was this bad. I don’t need Rambo like action from start to end but ... wow ... hard to not fall asleep with this dud.
Boooooooooooring,OMG what a waste of 2 hrs and $$$$$! :(
I enjoyed the descent into darkness and the cerebral nature of the film. Many do not like the slow pace and lack of action. I found it refreshing. Brad Pitt is subdued, conflicted and Tommy Lee Jones turns it an excellent performance.
I looked forward to an interesting outer Space film taking place in the near future the near future. The threat to Mother Eartn is stated at the film’s beginning but never fully resolved. On the journey to the Moon, Mars & Neptune, so Many contrived plot incidents occur that were implausible. If you could keep your eyes open until the end, the father son encounter dies not serve to enlighten or resolved the challenge stated at its beginning.
I saw the movie. I had liked it but it is not for children to watch
one person trying to give this film high ratings......wrong, it was horrible
Worth seeing. Don't expect action per se, but character development keeps the viewer's interest. Some tense moments. A little slow, but I was never bored.
I enjoyed the technicalities of the film, watching Brad Pitt perform the role with precision, the expectations of where the story was going.
Great story line and fantastic acting by Brad Pitt.
Everyone who gives this movie terrible reviews were wanting a "Hobbs And Shaw in Space" shoot 'em up with explosions. This movie is not that. If you like movies that use actual brain power, and makes you think just a tad, this is a great movie. Since I used the Hobbs and Shaw analogy, I'll use another movie. This is the space version of Terrence Malicks "The Thin Red Line". It is eerie similar in the voice overs, and inner reflections and how the movie makes you think more about people's lives and personal experiences, and not your expectations of how you think the movie should go. I see how this movie is so reviled by the general audience that's used to mindless actions flicks, but I can also see why it received such good reviews from real movie critics. If you want your movies to go boom, do not waste your money on this movie. If you enjoy a movie with outstanding scenery and a little deep thought, without all the gunfire, this is an excellent choice.
Boring, slow paced, mindless, 90% of dialogue done with voiceovers, characters not utilized, kept waiting for something to happen, use this movie if you have insomnia. Stay away.
My expectations were greater than the actual movie. It could have been great. Wait for it to go the cheap theaters. Very boring and the plot is filled with holes.
