Ad Astra (2019) Film Review

Rating: 0.5 out of 5.

Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) is an astronaut who must travel across Space in an attempt to locate his missing father (Tommy Lee Jones) who journeyed on a fateful expedition across the solar system thirty years earlier. Despite Roy’s mental state being questioned due to his personal connection to the mission, Roy is determined to find his father and halt the father’s completion of his mission which now threatens Earth.

I felt that the film was long and had various strands to the plotline, but I found it very confusing which made me lose interest. The story did not seem to progress but the parts in Space were at least visually very compelling. Brad Pitt’s performance was very good and believable as Roy McBride, but I think the storyline of this film did not give him much chance to shine. Unless Space films are to your tastes, I would not recommend this film as believe it only appeals to that niche market.
