“Ad Astra” is one of the most cerebral sci-fi films I’ve ever seen. The original story from writer / director James Gray gives an intimate look at the emotional toll that comes from being just one man lost among the stars in the vastness of space. It’s like a more existential version of Terrence Malik’s “Tree of Life,” but set in the outer reaches of our galaxy.
Roy McBride (Brad Pitt), an astronaut with nerves of steel, travels to Neptune to find his missing hero astronaut father (Tommy Lee Jones). As part of a top secret mission, Roy begins to unravel a mystery and uncover truths that may threaten the survival of Earth. This may sound like a blockbuster action thriller, but it’s not. Instead, the film is an emotionally complex introspective about a man burdened with the sins of his father.
Pitt gives a stunning, understated performance as a man struggling with the psychological toll of isolation and regret. It’s one of his best to date, and it’s nearly impossible not to have a deep emotional connection as you share his character’s established sadness. The father and son dynamic shapes Roy’s life, and he’s never quite gotten over the abandonment issues he’s felt since he was a child. The scenes where Roy and Cliff finally reunite are brief but come from a heartfelt place of forgiveness that grows with the passage of time. It’s the perfect analysis of our own humanity, as we all continue searching with a blind hope to find our footing in the cosmos.
The film relies heavily on voiceover narration from Roy, something I normally hate because it feels like lazy storytelling. That isn’t the case here. It works well and is a very effective method that complements the director’s vision. In fact, everything about this film is a success, from Max Richter‘s haunting original score to the special effects and striking cinematography (by Hoyte Van Hoytema), tight direction, and detailed sound design. Gray achieves what he’s going for when every element of the film works together as a whole, and it all is executed in a stunning fashion.
“Ad Astra” is highly intelligent and melancholy science fiction that will leave a lasting impression on those who can appreciate its sadness and beauty.
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”.
Where do I begin?
Not an action movie although many action scenes. Not a psychological thriller although many attempted “deep and philosophical” monologues and constant “psychological” assessments. A family adventure? Ha!
This, similar to Gravity, is a cinematographic delight wrapped in an awful plot, terrible script, some really jarring technical flaws (to be discussed later) and some totally ridiculous scenes that were thrown in as an afterthought to try keep us from falling asleep at Brad’s constant monotonic narration about nothing.
The ridiculous scenes: * Raging space baboons * Space pirates hell bent on destruction but without reason * A military convoy of buggies with only a few hand guns in a known Warzone * The crazed father hellbent on staying but leaves without a whisper * Giant neon Marlboro Man visible only to space pirates… * Rockets land in one place and take off in another in the middle of nowhere * Underwater tunnels in the middle of nowhere that lead to the rocket *Brad sneaks through said tunnel to climb aboard said rocket during launch… OMG The list is endless..
The technical flaws: * A sky high Tower within the Earth’s gravitational field built from Meccano sets of infinite strength * Brad happens to be wearing a parachute with his spacesuit * Astronauts who playfully release liquids in zero gravity amongst life critical electronic equipment * Brad never grows a beard or hair in 79 days of space travel on the way there but grows just a bit on the way back * Cosmic waves that increase in power the further from the source * The source is a massive unexplained disc on the side spaceship. What was that built for? * Brad’s all environments self repairing light material spacesuit * Dozens of cheap plastic Casio calculators stuck willy nilly on every bit of equipment * Airlocks, or should I say none.. * Climbs aboard a rocket 2 seconds before launch and survives the g-forces just standing inside the door And the list goes on
Some fantastic cinematography. Truly worth seeing in IMAX as I did. You can almost understand why Flat Earthers believe everything is fake as the imagery is so real! Amazing.
Overall, a mess of a movie!
