Okay now we are on our way, wait until we find ( I Hope) Tommy Lee then watch out wait why are the light coming up did I fall asleep , well if I did did not miss much.

Boring .

And let me tell you learning Aviation theory i reeeeeeaaally BORING.

The new worst movie I have ever seen .

It's a masterfully crafted film, with stunning visuals, profound drama, and a brilliant lead performance from Pitt.

It has a convoluted story that has is lacking significant consequence and has the flattest acting from Brad Pitt that I have ever seen and has an excruciatingly slow pace.

With an amazing sound editing, stunning cinematography, a beautiful soundtrack, and an incredible performance by Brad Pitt as Roy McBride, it gives us an astonishing journey through space.

The first five minutes of this film suggested an action packed sci-fi romp, but from there the pace went from slow to full stop.

First off, the positives: the visuals are stunning, and the acting of Jones and Sutherland was fantastic.

Talk about boring!

Ironically both Donald Sutherland and Tommy Lee Jones acted together in the much more accurate and much more entertaining Space Cowboys.

why is this rated 7.1??? most boring movie ever.

Don't waste your money or life.

The way the film pans out is through rather bland action sequences that fill up the film until it gets to it's first story point.

Don't waste your hard earned money.

A waste of time and money.

I was more bored and depressed by what I was watching than anything else.

Reminded me of Terence Malick movie ,with the slow speech and scenes.

If I ever thought that Star Trek TMP was slow-paced and boring, this one exceeded it by ten times.

It is slow, with only a couple of totally illogical action sequences, that neither added to the storyline, or enhanced this boring film.

A slow pace movie which I like, stunning performance by bratt pit.

Don't waste ur time!!

Boring, boring, too much talking.

Good medicine for sleeping if ever on tv and struggling from insomnia.

In truth, if you like your science fiction fantasies to be more pretentious family drama than action, then Ad Astra is your go-to vehicle.


Its heavily affected by Kubrick's space odyssey , Ridley Scott's blade runner, and Frances Coppola's Apocalypse Now, by drawing several examples from the general dreary atmosphere of the journey towards meaning; the connection with artificial intelligence as "Hal" in the odyssey; the steely psychological analysis of the replicas in the Blade Runner; and the long trip towards the insane in Apocalypse Now.

Glad senior admission in the Philippines is only US$3.15. If you must see it, it will be on cable by Christmas it is so boring.

Even if some aspects of the film were somewhat confusing in their "artsiness," they still were neat to observe.

Some stunning space scenes, and I really liked the space vehicle interior sets.

The year's most boring and slowest movie...

The simple choice to have voiceover narration spell out seemingly every single thought that passes through Brad Pitt's head, including the occasional trite epithet on fathers and sons, becomes oddly distracting and renders the film dramatically inert.


If, like me, you are bored with relentless, tedious action and (yawn) super hero films, bored with gore and guns and worn down by watching unpleasant people doing unpleasant things, then give this a go.

It's slow really has no plot and is rubbish!!

From the line at the very beginning "in the near future" which it clearly isn't, to the moon pirates which have no story or motive and are just there to write out Donald Sutherland's Charachter, to the killer Gorilla which is just there to kill of the captain.

Basically similar to last John Wick, minus action - meaning, there is no story, there is no believable sci fi, and the acting...

Regrettably, what potential this idea had is promptly snuffed out by the film's excessive use of voiceover narration, which goes from nondescript to repetitive to downright cliche-ridden by the film's conclusion.

Yes, I struggled to stay awake at one point (not joking), it was that bad.

Slow and a very boring film wishing walked out half way through as that terrible

Father/Son; Man/God relationships explored in a fascinating allegory .

2019 Most Beautiful, Boring and Slow Movie .

Don't waste your time.

Don't waste your time and money - See literally any other movie in the theater and I promise it will be better than this one.

Extremely long story short, there are a few "entertaining" scenes attempting to break up the monotony of space travel such as an encounter with moon pirates (whose presence is explained away with such a brief moment of dialogue my yawn literally drowned it out so I never understood why they were there).

Visually it is stunning.

Epic trailer, boring film with no story.

A movie where nothing happens.

Unfortunately, the actual movie was slow and boring.

Sad to see reviews saying its "boring" or that science in the movie is incorrect.

Visually Stunning .

Pointless plot just for the sake of space travel.

The most slow movie ever.

Entertaining Space Exploration Adventure .

The cinematography and the score were breathtaking and I can't wait to rewatch this dozens of times.

The movie stagnates as it progresses to the point where it becomes boring.

Snoozer .

There is Liv Tyler in this film, too, but you forget about her until she shows up in another pointless and boring scene at the end.

This movie has exactly that same feel, almost a rip-off of that same lethargic, close-up-face scenes and SLOW and quasi-claustrophobic and absolutely BORING style.. that some MORON once decided was a good way to make a movie, and a series of MORONS have followed since, right off that cliff.

It was slow and drawn out.

Against those strengths lies an often plodding pace, bad science to the point of incredulity, characters whom we only get glimpses of and are left wanting more (even, I would say, Brad Pitt's Roy McBride).

$100 million art house with no story .

Self-indulgent, lacking storyline and stiffly directed, Brad Pitt looks like he's wandering through an expensive music video.

Ratings of 4 to 5 stars are, I guess, from people who have a preference for slow and boring story-lines, lifeless characters, and stupid and/or bad science.

Worst movie that I've seen in quite some time .

Unwatchable .

Quite boring and nonsense actions for supposedly clever people.

It's long, it contains parts that could easily be left on the cutting room floor and featured this constant monologue from Pitt about personal relationships that became vacuous and dull.

So boring, my wife and almost walked out.

lastly brad pitt's character reaches his father after going through a LONG and boring process, and then also NOTHING.

I love Interstellar but this movie is so boring and acting is crappy as it gets.

It's amazing because the plot itself has to be so empty and void of any merit for it to have to fabricate conflict/action out of thin air.

Slow and very disconnected .

There are a few moments of action, but it's slow in general.

It's slow, but gripping.

The father-son relationship is, at best, banal and naive.

It's just plain BORING.

This movie also features some incredibly stunning visuals.

Truly boring long film .

And the vast celestial universe that is portrayed in John Grey's heady sci-fi drama may loom large with its stellar use of CGI, but the movie plays slow and loose with its scientific facts.

What follows is an extremely slow trip into deep space with little to no cinematography to show it.

It is slow, introspective & more interested in exploring the human condition than the sci-fi elements that outline its narrative.

Long drawn out, dull dialogue.

A stunning story of a journey .

At times, the second half was as unbearable as listening to Torontonians talk enthusiastically about the price of real estate.

Ending was dull.

Just a waste of our time as well as a complete waste of great resources and talent.

Bad science, pointless characters, turgid dialog and evil baboons .

Somewhat pointless and rough.

Was hard to stay awake for this most boring movie I've seen ever.

I fell asleep about 6 times .

His narrating throughout the movie was dole, boring and dreadful.

All of the supporting characters in this film were treated as props and so it felt disjointed and convenient.

Yes, boring.

It was a complete waste of 2 hrs of your time to watch this piece of rubbish.

And special effects can only do so much to salvage an empty shell of a movie.

This is so far the worst movie I have ever seen.

This is the worst movie I've ever seen.

It's just dull.

Boring (to say the least) .

Brad goes on pointless after pointless journey through space, with no real importance or sense to it than Brad becomming less of a psychopath...

Boring .

The plot is boring and slow.


It's the first movie I've been to where a group of people got up 15 minutes into the movie and just walked out.

Very boring .

The visuals are stunning and the score highlights them beautifully.

It's slow moving, VERY slow in fact.

The first scene itself of Brad Pitt falling from the tower might be the most absorbing and metaphorical action shots ever sequenced.

What I got was tedium of dull characters, silly storyline, extreme close ups of pensive faces, and a monotonous monologue narration.

This story makes no sense, doesn't hold together, is totally predictable, and the science (fiction or not) is just ridiculous.

A Boring Space Odissey Which Goes Nowhere .

It's terribly slow and boring, I almost fell asleep.

The movie's pacing is uneven: despite a thrilling beginning and end the rest of the film drags at a snail's pace.

Don't waste your time or money.

The entire movie was slow and boring!

It is refreshing and engaging due to the lack of contrived violence and profanity as dual journeys weave hope and resolution.

Crew arrives on Mars (thanks to Pitt who seems to know how the spacecraft operates yet had no training whatsoever), which is a collection of empty grey rooms and long dull corridors filled with strange objects (empty bird cage, dolls?

James Grays most recent exploration into film takes you on a visually thrilling journey to the far, lonely depths of space and beyond.

Don't waste your time.

The film's direction is slow moving.

Depressing, slow moving film that has less to do with science fiction and more to do with the main character's abandonment issues.

i would have loved the movie if the story was more interesting because the graphics and direction were sublime why waste all that money and not invest in an interesting story?

I bet you people are who felt Blade Runner 2049 was also boring.

Don't believe the hype, people left the cinema half way through and my wife fell asleep,

The minority, specifically black, characters are the first to be killed, and the ending has a suspenseful scene in which a person on a tether to a spacecraft is yanked into the gaping abyss of space.

If you watch this movie because you like Brad Pitt or because you wanted a sci-fi adventure then I am afraid you will be disappointed by how slow the film is, and how unconcerned it is by walking the audience through all of the repercussions of some of the world building.

Seriously 15-20 people left the theatre after an hour of boring acting and a terrible plot.

An emotional and visually-stunning journey into the psyche.

Do not expect a movie like Interstallar, it's just a dull movie with an ending so predictable.

Primarily because there is no story line to tell.

Boring and Bad .

Waste of time.

Worst movie till date for Brad!

Apocalypse Now in Space, I really enjoyed the movie, it is a feeling of uncertainty and unexpected horror.


The movie is not going to any point, boring and not clear at all.

Boring, Boring & even more boring.

I felt like on the amusement-park scary-castle train ride, where the route is pre-written by the script, whatever random, non-sensical or even pointless the turns to be.

Super Boring...

characters, what a waste of time and money that I can never get back

James Gray pulls no punches here, from start to finish there's a horrifying suspense as this slow burner slowly takes you on a beautiful, yet terrifying and lonely journey throughout space, thats full of twists, turns and plenty of bumps in the road.

The craft on display is exceptional and the story is thought-provoking and generally entertaining, with a terrific central performance, and some spectacular visuals (especially in the IMAX format).

The script and direction is slow and tedious.

This movie has NO plot, NO story development, NO character development, absolutely horrible writing, garbage script and most of all a bad director who made it all happen.

The film initially lays out many intriguing plot directions- a destructive signal from Neptune; an antimatter system gone awry; a rogue astronaut who was once a hero.

dont expect people to be thrilled when they pay $$$ to see a boring lump of garbage is is about as thrilling as Days of our lives or any generic soap on TV..I really should have asked for my Money back ..

My sister and I both enjoyed it.

After the first half it turns into a over dramatic, empty, story poor an boring space flick.

There are definitely some adrenaline boosting action scenes, jump scares, tension abounds, everything one desires in a 'serious' movie.

Ad Astra knowingly plays into the traditions and grammar of space opera, its thrilling ambition met with typical unoriginality.

Movie was so long and boring that the woman next to me fell asleep and was snoring.

Ultimately, it's utterly pointless

There are some issues with plot, such as what did Clifford (and crew) ate for some 20 years orbiting around Pluto, but I still found the film hypnotically fascinating for its mix of believable (the vulgarity of human colonisation) and the psychological issues.

What a waste of time .

The Tommy Lee Jones character was a NASA super star but had a small and confusing role, not to mention that he supposed to survive for 16 years by himself?

You'll get bored fast.

Don't waste your time or money, see something, ANYTHING else instead!

)I understand what the film was about, but it still takes a long time to deliver a trite message in a way we've seen before.

Moving on to what this movie really is about, it's not, in my opinion, about "how we take things for granted", or the father son love cliché.

Waste of time.

On the way to Mars, Pitt and a crew of astronauts - that look and act like waiters in a cheap restaurant - stop to respond to a distress signal only to find hungry Norwegian Killer Baboons in an empty floating station....

Ad Astra is worth a watch, but warn you that the last half of the film is much too slow.....

This movie has great scenes in the space environment and unpredictable outcomes.

This is the lineage into which Ad Astra wishes to step, but for me, it has more in common with the excellent Sunshine (2007) and the flawed but entertaining Interstellar (2014) - irrespective of its themes and tropes, it remains a mainstream Hollywood movie, wherein the demand for crowd-pleasing content often clashes with the desire for esotericism.

Long and Boring .

Learn from others' mistakes - don't waste time or money on Ad Astra.

Snooze fest .

All it was is a waste of money and time.

Visually beautiful with a story line that you will struggle to keep watching, so mind numbingly dull after the first 30 minutes and an ending that's as predictable as they come.

Utterly pointless .

Slow and effortless .

Sci Fi can go from entertaining to pretty ludicrous and it can do it pretty quickly.

One to see on the big screen for the stunning planetary cinematography by Hoyte Van Hoytema.

The only good bits were in fact a pointless such as the moon chase and the space station that had a distress call.

Yes, but with a compelling story, beautiful visuals and a few great actors.

The movie is claustrophobic, slow, and boring.

It reminds me of the slow, lethargic, melancholy, and absolute depressing production, acting, writing and horrific directing that went into First Man (2018) which was the absolute WORST portrayal of a great American hero in Neil Armstrong (played by a melancholy, over-rated 'Canadian' actor ---which should have been my first warning sign it would be bad).

Put yourself into deep space hibernation and sleep through the 2 dreary hours to avoid the boredom of this long long trip.

I found it slow, boring and mediocre at best.

This does not need spoiler alerts because there is nothing to spoil, tedious and confused ramble through the sci fi cliches of the last 30 years, a Brad Pitt vehicle that goes nowhere and even the journey is tedious.

Excruciatingly painfully boring.

Insomnia cure .

Ad Astra reviewIt's been a long time since I saw a film that was as big a waste of time, and as big a disappointment, especially after reading a number of glowing reviews, as this one.

I was continuously falling asleep throughout this whole movie.


What a waste of cast and time

Nothing happens.

An Above Average Visually Stunning Film .

The cinematography by Hoyte Van Hoytema is truly stunning and produced several shots which will likely live on in space film history.

you can easily fall asleep during this movie...

*Yawn* to the max.

Apparently taking off on bad-movie-plot-mars is slow enough you don't pull multiple G's.

That is at the core of this film starring a meditative absolutely engaging Brad Pitt.

No story no nothing.

While it is very slow, it stills keeps enough tensions and action to keep you intrigued throughout the story.

Conclusion: Save your money.

super boring.

waste of time and money .

Nothing about the story stood out as new, different, creative, or exciting.

Just to eliminate any doubt: I get that this film was about a father-son relationship, appreciating loved ones, etc. Still, it was an awful, pretentious mess of a movie.

No story, no humanity, no respect of science.

If you want to watch Brad Pitt with a blank face and doing totally mind stretching impossible science for 2 hours, this is for you other wise save your money and time.

Such a BORE!


Great acting for a boring plot .

The visuals are stunning, the universe building is incredible.

No character development, no story and nothing worth watching.

The only reason I didn't give it a 1 is because some of the visuals are truly stunning.

It is not the main point of the story, but features heavily, with lots of slow scenes, narration and flash-back to childhood memories.

It starts off well with a big opening action scene that's visually stunning and...

The story was horrible, it was slow paced and boring with little action.

Waste of time.

Together with a riveting, atmospheric score, it conveys an enigmatic and painful world inhabited by the characters.

boring .

Boring and pointless.

Waste of money.

This is one of the most pretentious, faux deep, heavy handed, unself-aware pieces of garbage I have ever encountered in my 44 years of life.

I should have walked out at the right moment.

A gorgeous, gorgeous film, which shows fascinating, thought-provoking depictions of space travel "in the near future" including commercial travel to the Moon and travel to Neptune, passing by Saturn and Jupiter.

Worth watching!

It's not Interstellar, but if you love space exploration, it's visually stunning.

Two hours flew by, the visuals are stunning, the soundtrack is one of the best of the year and it is a simple story told very well.

Story line is weak and confusing.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen!!

The ridiculousness of the horrifically bad science was only trumped by the dull agonizing tone.

This movie was boring

Still worth the watch.

After a brilliant first hour with a fitting pace, beautiful images, the film loses his momentum to end with an expected and boring end.

No good effects, story line was lame, and was like watching paint dry or water boil.

This movie wanted to come across like some epic movie, but instead was just a long drawn out boring movie.

I would have gotten up and walked out if I hadn't been with other people.

Nothing happened, it just looked good.

Extremely boring and slow.

Beware its a slow movie so if you enjoy movoes like Silence or 2001 A Space Oddysey you will most likely be able to handle the silence and slow dialog scenes.

As a previous reviewer said, slow and boring.

The stunning photography by Hoyte van Hoytema and Kevin Thompson's awe-inspiring production design make the film one of the most metaphysical cinematic experience since Kubrick's 2001.

SPOILER ALERT Nothing happens and they find nothing!!

But mostly dull and boring with a side-order of Valium.

but the film is so slow.

Boring, a Cannes film with meaningless long background music.

Extremely slow, with no story, waste of time and money.

I fell asleep..when I awoke I saw a lot of bobbing heads.

But it's still worth watching.

Slow at times, almost put me to sleep.

Ad Astra satirizes the familiar utopic elements of the space genre by using these banal sight gags to remind us that the world will be no better in space because we cannot escape ourselves.

Most of the visuals are stunning and really impactful.

Don't waste your money.

Yes it may be a bit pretentious at times.

Slow pacing and insultingly bad science .

The story is very boring.

Ad Astra only faults come from pointless side stops that have no impact on the films bigger picture and extremely quiet moments with its beautiful back drops that will make it to keep your eyes open.

All this trouble to give a cliche message .

slow paced drama.

Boring and nonsensical .

A big waste of time .

This is a very claustrophobic slow paced character study.

Boring movie .

Ad Astra or Into the Stars is excitingly intriguing.

Wow, talk about a boring movie.

Except the main character, all others are totally flat and empty.

Worst movie of 2019 .

Incredibly slow paced.

Save your money, save your sanity and save your soul, don't watch it even on blue ray.

SUMMARY: Dull, tedious, preposterous.

A tedious, monotonous and downright pointless storyline makes for a boring movie...

If you thought Driving Miss Daisy was exciting, this one's for you.

Completely boring, dragged out, shouldn't have made it to cinemas.

Waste of time .

Good effects but zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz .

But this movie is more boring than that.

Slow build up, followed by an instant letdown.

everything you see during the movie is pointless.

Seriously, this is the worst movie I've seen in a long time.

A visually stunning film about a man with daddy issues travelling through space.

Making his assignment more perilous is the fact that different nations have taken to the universe like fractured countries where lawlessness & anarchy breeds (a thrilling sequence involving a lunar pursuit involving buggies is a hoot).

There is no plot.

But it was just too boring, right?

It was just kinda boring, it didn't excite me once, from beginning to end, and i love space movies.

The slow gliding feeling you get when you are in space, due to the chair movement.

A series of beautiful images tied together by absolutely no story.

It is more of a opiniated lecture about how space exploration is allegedly pointless and only perpetuating human flaws at a larger scale.

Yes, it's kinda unrealistic and a bit slow.

Really, this was the worst movie for so many people.

I love sci-fi movies but this is one of the worst movies I have seen in 10 years.

It's not even 'traditional' SF, it's more of a slow burn, complex psychological drama set in space.

Bored no revelation of what caused the initial problem that starts the mission.

It's a good recipe to cure insomnia.

This is a slow burning cerebral film focusing on the inner conflict and emotional struggle of a single character.

Boring and dry, basically I think you'll be surprised how dull this film is.

Since I didn't, I'm only sorry that I wasted so much of my life on this banal piece of navel gazing from a man who seems entirely unaware that he is as insightful as a lump of rancid excrement.

However, it is also very well acted, there were some genuine surprises, it was visually stunning, the effects were absolutely beautiful, and it has a good heart to it.

However, it is slow AF and tries to be super "meta".

Visually stunning but utterly tedious .

Visually impressive, touchingly sad, but somewhat empty and shallow.

My God, what an awful waste of time!

Boring and Slow - Any body who watched it without fighting sleep, you deserve an Oscar my friend.

Just boring.

This was so bad ad boring.

unbearable .

I just woke up in an empty movie theater.

the movie is almost a monologue, casual, stopped, completely bland.

Massive production for a boring movie .

Unlike many I didn't find this movie boring, I thought Brad Pitts performance and introspection was interesting and engaging.

This film is totally boring and pointless and goes nowhere.

I had a lot of expectations for this one, I think it's just disappointing to see how much money people invest in creating beautiful technology of space in a movie, and it's just boring movie, drama that doesn't go to anywhere .

Flat, boring 2 hours of nothing....

It was a long, drawn out, painful psycho-drama.

I like this slow psychological epos.

But I can understand that some found Ad Astra a bit too slow.

Then we somehow get to Neptune where he leaves his ship, has terrible boring dialog with good ole dad Tommy Lee, tells him we got to go Dad, sets a bomb and off they go on a spacewalk.

Slow and Boring .

Essentially 2.5 hours that you could have spent watching paint dry and enjoyed that more.

IN BRIEF: John Grey's slow-moving mediative ode to the cosmos bores rather than soars.

Is this a promotion for Brad Pitt, to showcase that he is "capable" of intense, reflective, insight movies?

I thoroughly enjoyed it either way.

Um, Kind of A Yawner With A Black Hole Story Line at the End .

This movie is so boring.

Bottom line: "Astra" is an icy, slow burn journey of a film and because of its artsy-fartsy residue and languidness, I might not have the gumption to see it again.

The film is always engaging as it takes viewers farther away from Earth.

It is possibly the most boring movie I've ever seen.

Save your money.

The people directly behind me where in and out of sleep (complete with occasional snoring), while the people sitting in the same row several seats over where on the edge of their seat.

I enjoyed and found it worth watching.

Ad Astra tells the fully original, thrilling, emotional, and thought provoking story of a man who has to face himself, his father, and the galaxy as he travels to the outer depths of the solar system to confront his father and save the earth.

It is pretty slow moving, relies almost entirely on a single characters inner monologue to drive the story - much like a one-man drama play, and lacks any real action taking place except in a couple of places where the action felt like it was just there to make sure you stayed awake between the slow parts.

3) bland, zero character building.

Speaking of the cast, Brad Pitt, this guy ladies and gentlemen is the main reason why this movie gets a 7/10 rating, he was so breathtaking and you feel for him every time he speaks, well done Legend, what a great year for you.

Please save yourself from the aggravation, the boredom and the expense by avoiding this disgusting movie.

To me, it seems that they put this voice over so that average audiences could stay on-board with what the film was trying to say and explore - but the very people who need that voice-over will likely find the film boring and slow anyway.

The only problems I have with the movie is the pacing is rather slow and, because of that, it's not a movie for everyone.

This movie has all the wrong elements: Simplistic plot, pointless events, characters with no depth, and a lead who nobody cares about.

This movie is so boring it almost put me in a coma.

A Philosophical Space Bore .

Pretty slow .

Pointless Hollywood Tripe .

Probably personal to the director, but at the end a little boring and far not that intelligent to pace that slow.

The fact is that "Ad Astra" is often boring as a result, making it hard for me to fully recommend it.

Then this random new character spills the mystery behind his father in a very unceremonious/uneventful way.

Otherwise you can live like %90 of world's population and say that this is a boring and bad movie.

movie about empty space, harshness of long space travel and how to survive encounter with a space monkey .

With an intense spirituality to the visual storytelling, it argues for an appreciation of our everyday mundanities, especially if our search for bigger meaning gets in the way.

It's incredibly boring & bad!

Boring movie - essentially Brad has daddy issues and the science is absolutely awful

It's refreshing to see a science fiction movie that doesn't need to be slow, boring and plotless in order to seem more philosophical.

Boring, boring, boring.

The plot was ponderous and somewhere, very early on in production, someone said, "let's just forget the science and make stuff up as we go to fit the plot.

A lot of people are ripping on this for how slow it is and are also complaining about this movie having no plot!!!.

You'll get bored easily.

So torturously slow and lacking real interest!

This is the first time I watch a movie and fall asleep 3 times.

Even it knew it was so boring there was a meaningless space attack scene to break up the monotony.

Boring .

Don't get me wrong, I like psychologically driven films which are on the slow side such as The First man or The Thin Red line, and even though Interstellar was tedious at the end, it had some strong visual moments.

Several examples (beware spoilers):why were there huge empty hallways on the Mars surface - this would have been increadibly costly to build and keeping them empty would be a very bad idea.

Brad is good as usual but the story is boring and goes nowhere

What ever anyone does, just don't waste your time or money on this POS Movie.

No story.

It is entertaining enough - which is why I gave it 6 out of 10.

Brad Pitt was like a boring Keanu Reeves.....

A lot of times, they try to do the epic moment with silence and then music, that it became boring.

Bad script, bad acting, don't waste your time or money, very disappointing.

Very dull indeed.

Supporting the action and exciting visuals is quite a basic story.

The movie is dragging you along with confusing story.

my new "Worst Movie iv seen" .

It seems everything else was too languid to salvage that Audience Score, then.

It's a slow burn that keeps you thinking if you know how, so don't sit down to watch and expect lots of over the top action and unrealistic explosions.

While visually stunning and well produced, most of the film lacks any sort of tension or sense of purpose.

Save your money .

The ONLY thing I found intriguing about this film was the antenna at the beginning.

There were a few good scenes, but they were few and far between, and the narrative was boring.

Boring and tedious .

Accompanied by an atmospheric and touching score by Max Richter, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A lot of shootings in this chase scene - at this point the movie is already very boring - so it gives you a little bit of hope that something unpredictable and exciting is about to happen.

But, it was totally boring and slow.

What at its core feels like a clever and compelling dramatic exploration into emotional distance, exemplified by the setting of physical distance between astronaut father and son duo, is chopped up and falling apart due to shoehorned irrelevant Hollywood sequences.

Movie is very slow and yawning.

While I understand that space travel is boring, the pacing of this movie really threw me off.

At one point I thought something really thought provoking was going to happen but then it just went back to being slow.

You can tell the script adds intentionally pointless, unexplained, unmotivated action/thrill sequences intermittently just to keep viewers awake.

First off, this is a slow burning yet engaging endeavor.

worse brad pitt movie i've ever seen more boring then watching paint dry.

This movie was long, slow, stupid at parts, and not entertaining at all.

The visual effects are stunning, showing us a world that is at time gorgeous and at times disgusting, just like a human civilization in space would probably look like.

Wow, this is probably the worst movie I have seen in a very long time.

In addition to slow motion, the extremely slow pacing also hindered the ability to fill the film with sufficient story.

Well that was a waste of time and I had such high expectations.

this movie is so slow that it actually makes time go slower.

The at times brooding, at times exciting, but always compelling premise of space/self-exploration, combined with the appreciably contemplative pace, breathtaking atmosphere/visuals (heh), and solid central performance could've made this a mesmerizing experience if it wasn't for the ultimately underwhelming and sometimes cliche voice-over ruminations, climactic encounter, and main character arc (the initially reserved and enigmatic Roy feels more like the typical generic leading man by the end).

Predictable and unrealistic.

Boring, you will wish u didnt spend to see .

There are two different stories in Ad Astra, both would have needed more details and an even slower pace.

The slow pace and metaphorical story will probably lose most people.

I would happily have walked out at any point of the film, tedious, self absorbed nonsense.

I personally loved the movie, a good intense ride into human nature & the unknown .

Ad Boring .

If you like slow movies about space, where very little happens, then this is the one for you.

The movie is SO SLOW...

Slow lousy story I can tell in one minute.

The pace of the story is slow, reaffirming it's place in the realm of space exploration dramas.

I don't judge a movie based on an extremely slow pace, but add on the horrible writing and this movie is simply unbearable.

It slow and story progress in a smooth scene by scene intake.

Very slow .

This movie was dumb and uninspiring.

For me this was a self indulgent movie for Mr Pitt !

Even if you hate everything about this film, the stunning visuals and cinematography are at least worth a 6/10.

Its absolutely stunning, images such as Neptune and the Mars surface look way too real and I was thoroughly impressed with the detail and colour implemented.

All scenes in it are way too long, basically no action and the story is hollow.

Re-treading his arthouse/euro-indie roots, Gray requires more than banal thrills from his audience, daring us to wait out his silences, carefully hold each word, and allow each moment to contribute to a far greater whole.


And the story itself was boring.

It was super slow.

Then we have some pointless drive to the other side of the moon to disguise what they are doing so what do they do they have these moon buggies in full sight heading off to the dark side of the moon, hardly discrete.

Pretentious drivel about Brad Pitt's face .

Enjoyed it.

One of the worst movies I seen.

Boring movie, waste of time.

I will keep it simple, this is the most boring movie I think I have ever seen, so boring I actually fell asleep for about 20 minutes in the middle of it.

The new prescription for insomnia .

) that actually could have worked out, but they dumbed it down, kept it trite, added gratuitous action scenes (pirates on the moon!

Tedious waste of time .

Long hard journey to no story .

Boring .

Boring .

Worst movie I have ever seen hands down it was like watching grass grow.

Some great sfx with stunning planitary views going through our solar system.

Im beyond surprised that brad even agreed to star in such a ridiculously boring movie .. wasted 80 mins of my life , walked out of the cinema

I don't get it, waste of money and good actors.

It's like 90% filler with no story and terrible acting.

One of the most boring and far fetched films I have ever seen.

Slow going.

Arguably the most boring space movie ever made .

Having said that, I love adventurous films that take you on a suspenseful voyage where you are always on your toes and that is what this movie is.

It's a slow burning movie that ultimately leads nowhere.

An interpersonal journey through space that impresses & frustrates in equal doses, Ad Astra is a visually arresting & emotionally absorbing space opera that's crafted with delicate care and benefits immensely from Brad Pitt's nuanced performance.

Slow boil journey in search of the human soul, packaged as a space sci-fi .

What were you bored about?

A mixture of bad actor choices and boring plot give me no real reason to recommend Ad Astra to anyone other than cinematography junkies who will enjoy some beautiful shots.

Just pretty slow not a lot going on....

I struggled to stay awake in the theater.

Travelling in lunar rovers, they are ambushed by scavenging pirates, the entire escort are killed, and Pruitt ends up in intensive care.

The message was stupidly obtuse and delivered on a repeating monotone track.

Those movies also had stupid and awkward plot holes, but this one was just more boring.

Worst movie I Seen all year .

It's boring...

A 2 hour bore and snore festival.


This is the type of film worth watching on the big screen.



Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring Boring

After an hour of wishing it would get interesting, we walked out of the theater.

With its breathtaking shots of space, and it's stylized use of color, Ad Astra is a feast for the eyes.

The surprises are predictable, the story is simple, the characters have understandable motives, and it feels like interstellar done again without any big scores, action or enough deep characters.

Boring .

Boring, uneventfull, waste of money and time .

I actually started to doze off in the theater.

Don't waste your time on pseudo-intellectual nonsense such as Ad Astra.

Ad Astra is one of those movies that you'll either love or fall asleep during.

most boring movie ever .

Personally, a waste of my previous time.

Instead, it comes off as bland as cold tea.

And that's mainly because of the breathtaking images from space.

The action scenes in the movie are pointless, incredible and even ridiculous to an extent.

This empty ship that is there because...

The mayday mission was also pointless.

It was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

We are inside Pitt's mind for the entirety of the film and if his actions seem slow, his decision making seems slower still.

First half okay; Second half a bore .

Beautiful yet dull, could of done with a little more story.

Waste of money & time, poor acting .

You should see this movie in IMAX because visuals are super great and breathtaking.

The original ending was infinitely superior, the VO is a huge misstep, and the action detours are ludicrous, but this is still an entertaining movie.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

If it were not for Brad Pitt, who did what he could given the material he had, I would have walked out of the screening.

Visually stunning, very well performed, with a script that touches so many important subjects of today, and so much more.

) The drama is uninteresting and blank.

It is desperately slow and a little boring.

Don't waste your time and money .

This was definitely one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

It is a bit slow.

Pitt, however, gives an extraordinary performance, and the breathtaking visual design and sound editing within the vast canvas is never short of amazing.

And the space aspect is just stunning!

) seriousness that turns the whole thing into a tedious exercise in endurance.

If you dislike slow psychological movies of MC talking to himself -> skip.

Decent and enjoyable .

I do love Brad Pitt, and the acting was great, it was just boring in spots, and had a lot of melodrama.

Went to see ad Astra with high hopes, turned out to be a movie I would have happily walked out of!

When it was over, my buddy (who loves Sci-Fi) said it was a waste of money.

However, what we get is a slow moving series of situations that make no sense, where characters act in a completely implausible manner and, worst of all, does not hold up to the most basic of scientific scrutiny.

A series of boring, unrelated events .

Good but too slow .

I'm led to believe this ending was a reshoot after test audiences responded poorly to the original (and far superior) ending - look it up online; the originally scripted ending made a lot more sense and was as thematically fascinating as it was existentially audacious.

It was incredibly boring.

It felt disjointed and the relationship between father and son had no believability to it and sadly I left feeling disappointment

In lieu of a compelling story arch, the film leans into its thematics, which are certainly compelling.

And this is the kind of confusion that is present in every single scene.

There were some other "physiological" themes in the film that got tiresome as seemed to go against what the realities are for space travel and in the future, long term travel.

A complete waste of time.

For me the soundtrack and visuals put me in a zen like state where the slow pace wouldn't bother me.

The detail was stunning and I really wish I could have seen it in IMAX.

Boring movie .

I like the idea for the film and most of the CGI is incredible but it is let down but directing that is as dull as dishwater.

Slow awful film .

The movie is as empty as Space, don't waste actual hours of your life repeating my mistake.

Worst movie Pitt has done.

Wish i could give 0 stars as this movie deserves itEven writing about this movie seems a waste of time it is boring, empty, cardboard characters, the plot is dumb, tries to be realistic but had "fake science", the script is terrible, the ending is disappointing, really this movie is nothing but a waste of time.

The movie was slow, so many things didn't make sense and really not a good movie.

Slow and booring space drama .

Slow, boring.

Boring, boring, boring!

If to this narrative it felt supercilious, it can be argued that Gray is more explicitly successful (with the occasional laughable moment) - ponderous thoughts carried with the gradually drawn cinematography of Hoyte van Hoyten, resting finally on day-old stubble or the wrinkles in the corner of eyes.

What a boring waste of time, this movie is so stupid and shows that Hollywood is using Brad Pitt to get people to watch.

Torment, misery, boredom, etc..

I felt bad, because there is a lot of great material and opportunity here, but instead of being on the edge of my seat like gravity I was more wondering when something interesting was going to happen.

"I fell asleep.

It's too long overall and slow for stretches, there seems like there's going to be more action than there is, anyone in the cast not named Brad Pitt or Tommy Lee Jones gets little to do and the movie pretends to be sound from a scientific perspective when its just as off course as Roy's mission.

I'm still stunned that they made a film that lasted 2 hours when absolutely nothing happens!

Was hoping for something more entertaining rather than brooding and negativity about humanity in general.

Slow and Occasionally Ludicrous .

Too long an Boring .

I really enjoyed it from start to finish despite the bad reviews it's a great film...

The film is simply brilliant,the story is really good and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.

Apart from having the usual blatent disregard for Newton's laws of motion, it is mildly entertaining.

So slow that sometimes we even forget what we're after.

But the cheap 'drama' they tried to create with Pitt's slow and boring narration was one of the most devestating parts of the movie.

Nobody walked out of the theater talking about the movie.

So slow, painful to watch what I saw.


The only entertaining scene in the movie.


But the ongoing psychoanalysis of McBride's life was just plain boring after a while.

Why did this movie need to be so boring with the highlights being fights and sadness.

With all that said, however, it's a testament to the story the film tells that despite these hurdles, I still enjoyed it.

Yet another boring movie featuring Brad Pitt .

Additionally there where 2 scenes of the movie that seems forced because someone realized it was so boring they needed to add some action.

It is incredibly dull for the most part and very little happens.

When it comes on television, go to a fast food restaurant and don't waste your time.

Tedious and dodgy .

Nothing happens at all in any stage of the movie.

Bored, expected better from a cast like this .

A long stretched two our empty space drama .

So Empty!!!

For me, it seemed way to slow in both plot and character development.

I like slow-moving films so that aspect didn't bother me as it seems to be bothering everyone else.

It just seems they included some scenes to make the movie more thrilling!

Honestly, was more entertaining to laugh about this guy snoring near me.

Baboons that are pointless and have nothing to do with the story?

To put it simply, if your looking for a gripping, mind bending storyline that will leave you tossing and turning with questions for the next two nights....

Unrealistic, long, boring .

Don't waste your time.

It's a pointless two hours.

Spoilers:The positives:Great cinematography Great acting (especially by BP) Good set designThe negatives: Boring!!!

Brad plays an emotionless character with an emotionless father, in a movie with no surprises, no plot, and dialogue so boring I am grateful there was not much of it.

Absolutely nothing happens, there's a bit in the middle where very randomly Brad Pitt gets attacked by a space monkey(?

Slow, boring and dull with a nonsense plot that doesn't really do or say anything.

The actual movie was slow, had almost no plot, and had major plot holes

Boring film, what a let down.

Unbelievably, it is actually slower than interstellar and gravity, two other space snoozers.

This is seriously the worst movie of the year, and I'm saying this to save you some money, and perhaps the chance of getting a second date with that girl you fancy.

It's just slow, boring and bad.

well for me it became boring, unfulfiling and most of all so unrealistic that it completely turned me off.

To say that space exploring is waste of time and effort, that main danger in it is that you may become crazy, harmful, dangerous ...

I was fully invested in the slow buildup, anticipating a big, thrilling, mind-blowing reveal with a twist - Instead, I left the theater with a big "WTF!?!?

If you are severely dealing with a case of insomnia, then come watch this movie.

Waste of time .

For me the story contained at least two or three, exciting scenes and to the credit of the director, these are nicely worked into the plot.

Despite dificulties, this show is often beautiful, frequently suspenseful, sometimes slow, and occasionally shocking.

Be warned, the movie is slow, very slow.

There are many slow moving places of the movie that some viewers might have to fight through.

I get that it's a slow burn.

Slow paced pointless mess .

A great way to fall asleep.

The cinematography and effects are breathtaking and seamless.

The movie is horrible, a waste of time and money.

Brad's fall at the beginning and his flight to Neptune, his breakup with his father, are all exciting.

This is not a popular assessment, but I would say High Life is the more effective science-fiction slow burn of the year, mainly due to how it was equal parts claustrophobic and cosmically intimidating.

From the beginning of the movie I was expecting something more interesting and generally to become something thrilling in the film.

Slow, boring and basically no plot.

This is seriously dull which is a shame because the concept was pretty cool.

Having not seen any of the trailers and watching this movie at the last minute, I have to say I enjoyed it.

Tedious .

Character arcs that stopped dead or went nowhere.

Don't waste your Time .

And then, the movie gives itself a final slap in the face with an even more over-dramatic and completely uninteresting ending.

Slow, slow, slow.

Boredom - Out of this World!!!.

NOT "Oh, it's slow, people just want fast action, blah, blah blah"...

boredom in space characters that had no back story no front story no point of even being there it was just bad all around.

Hypnotically fascinating .

Dreadfully slow and uninteresting.

The ongoing dialogue between characters seems painfully somber and slow so that you would wish for some action to happen.

Okay, we get it: so this is supposed to be a "dad-son thing", "leading an empty life" (because space is empty - get it?

A couple of those fell asleep.

Yet, Ad Astra is magical and deep, portrayed through tender emotions and shot with breathtaking cinematography.

It's just crazy and boring gibberish.

Disappointing ending with severely dull acting = a waste of 2 hours.

But very slow.

Save your money

no story line, bad screenplay and no sense what so ever.

The movie was incredibly slow in most places and honestly some on what was included in the movie seemed disconnected and not to make sense.

Boring, i wish i could get the time spent watching it back...

Kept waiting for something good to happen, But very slow

Black woman as general :-D another Hollywood rewriting history disgusting propaganda

Ad Astra is a slow but compelling sci-fi drama, with few moments of "action", and despite its relatively modest budget some spectacular visuals.

A slow plod of a movie with nice but predictable CGI images.

I went into this movie really exciting and eager, and my wife caught me sleeping about 6 times.

Stretching it out to feature length made it feel tedious.

boring af .

Don't waste your money

Worst movie ever .

Big budget movie with great actors, yet boring script with very little info given from start to finish.

You guys are boring .

My only complaint is that the distance is very long, and his speed is very low.

People left the cinema during the movie and a couple even had a loud fight over why the husband dragged his wife to this movie.

Monotone script and plot.

Insultingly Pointless .

I dont understand how people think this is a boring film, I think this is a riveting soul touching story about a father and son.

Bad science, ponderous and boring .

A great slow burn of a movie.

The movie tries to capture the mystery and wonder of this classic sci-fi movie however it misses the mark and ends up becoming a pointless boring movie that that will leave you with a lack of hope and pay off.

It tried to be so artsy and esoteric, but ended up bland and annoying.

It is slow paced for the sake of inflating the run time.

)Pretentious from the pompous title to the very last line.

While I understand that it's a slow burn, the idea that you'd be bored during this movie is unfathomable to me.

Yet, behind the veil of philosophy and detachment is one beautiful and particularly entertaining film.

Boring drama waste of time .

In the case of Sunshine, this clash took the form of a genre shift into horror that Boyle doesn't fully pull off, and in the case of Interstellar, it's a predictable and unnecessary third-act twist.

but overall it was kind of lame, pretty boring, and a huge let down as a story.

Waste of time and money, easy to fall asleep to.

Apart from the action and the philosophical implications that are a big part of the constant musing and slow pacing, the movie is supposed to evoke with quiet contemplation, something crucial is missing in authenticity.

Boring movie .

If you are looking for fast paced scifi actuon, this is not for you.

Thought provoking, moving and looks stunning.

Try to enter the Space Ship from the bottom when is turned on and ready to leave lol?

As events unfold, Roy encounters unexpected allies who invite him into emotional co-regulation.

Slow moving, script made very little sense, and is a totally worthless waste of time.

I certainly felt like I lost two hours of my life in one of the most meaningless ways possible and judging by the absolute quiet when the end titles rolled, so did the rest of the nearly empty IMAX cinema.

This film is very much its own creation, and if you are happy with the slower pace then it is well worth the time.

The slooooow monotone narrative from Brad Pitt to explain his thoughts was of zero importance.

It was fitting for this boring anf pointless film, which failed to provide emotional payoff in any of the scenes, to end with a whimper.

(Honestly, could this thing be any more boring.

Save your money .


The story works quite nice and the pace is just right but again might be too slow for some viewers.

This has to be one of the worst movies I've seen in years.

And very, very boring .

One of the worst movie i ever seen I lost my money and lost my tim I don't recommend it to watch in your home or movie theater or cinema.

I'm glad I caught it at a discount theater for only $4, but it was still a waste of money.

These are compelling mysteries that the film sets up, before letting them putter to a boring and shockingly predictable end.

Waste of time and money

What a forgettable, bland film.

By the end of it I was falling asleep.

Like in The Martian or Passengers, the inevitable catastrophes are present, which seems a little "cliché".

Great Visually Stunning, Pongiant film about the psychological effects of being in the desolation of space .

Refreshing and Engaging .

Boring .

And it is very, very leisurely aka boring.

I'll always contend that the single most important thing about a film is how it finishes and makes you feel as you leave the theater.

What a snoozer.

The story was horribly contrived and predictable.

Honestly one of the most boring movies I have ever seen.

but it was quite stretched out making waiting for the next scene feel tedious.

It's just slow, dialogue-driven, and tedious.

I wouldn't even waste my time watching this for free if I had all the time in the world.

Worst movie since Red Planet .

Don't waste your time.

Worst movie of 2019.

Couldn't wait for it to end, long and tedious.

That's why it was enjoyable for me.

For those who appreciate a slow burning science eventuality film, with superb visuals, it's one of the best theater experiences of the year.

A slow movie that goes through the stages of degradation and collapse of an individual feeling lost and the will to continue forward and get up to reach a goal.

Don't waste your time .

They all seem to think they are saying something profound, but manage to make the most fascinating and amazing subject matter boring and lifeless.

Beautiful but dull, would be my three word review of "Ad Astra".

There are, of course, sound in space issues but they acknowledge it and consciously break the rules sometimes for the sake of a compelling scene, which is fine.

My wife and I both found it very slow, boring and without any real explanations for anything!

Give this a missIt had all the charm of Solaris with George Clooney and was equally as tedious .

This film looks great but it is ultimately tedious.

Overall, 'Ad Astra' is a movie which partly makes up for its predictable plot with inspired background world building and stunning visuals.

Skip this one and do something else for 2 hours, like watch paint dry.

Boring .

Ad Astra is one of the worst movies I have ever watched in my entire life.

Visually beautiful, inaccurate, slow, and just plain oddly plotted.

- did someone realise the same thing that I did and say 'Hey, this is boring , we need to wake the audience up somehow...

I will admit there are some slow spots and also an unnecessary minimal plot line with his wife.

Interesting but slow .

The exciting moments are already shown in the trailers which is all your getting in this film.

There is no story arc.

It's a boring script, mostly uneventful and the science is just plane wrong to make it believable.

Save your money and re-watch an old Star Trek movie if you want to enjoy a sci-fi fantasy.

It was slow and in the end unsatisfactory.

What annoyed me the most was Roy's narration like the whole thing has some bigger meaning but in the end it's just a bunch of empty words to make the movie look more sophisticated.

very slow and not much action or a story line...

Maybe pretentious for some.

This movie is boring and uninspiring.

I slept through half of this so maybe this isnt a fair rating but maybe theres a reason i fell asleep

I tried to watch this movie, but I kept falling asleep.

completely waste of time....

James Gray does a great job of creating a potential future which is all too believable, with attention to some really mundane details, such as how commercial flights to the moon would look and operate.

I was looking forward to seeing this but nearly walked out halfway through I was so bored.

Worst movie ever.

What a waste of time.

Don't waste your money on this.

while i liked it visually and cinematogaphy-wise and brad pitt as the main protagonist, the plot kind of lost me at the end and felt bland.

I could justify these opinions with extensive analyses of the film's dramatic and scientific failings, but such analyses might lead to spoilers, so I'll just stop and say that this is a truly, atrociously bad waste of time.

Howvwer, when having a charismatic lead man such as Brad Pitt could it have hurt to try and use his strengths a little bit and add a bit of humour to this dark and drab film.

It's masked veil of philosophy and detachment hides a beautiful and entertaining film.

This movie has very complicated highbrow concepts but they come off as pretentious very dull and boring.

His long and dreary final journey towards his father's base starts.

Alas, this was an incredibly boring drama about Brad Pitt who has daddy issues.

I was extremely disappointed with this totally boring movie.

What waste of time.

Stunning visuals offer compensation for awkward storytelling .

The visuals are stunning and i actually really enjoyed the story.

Don't waste your time!

This film is ridiculously slow, it almost feels like it runs in slow-motion!

The plot is all over the place, never focused, never clear, often tonally confusing, filled with forced action scenes that contribute nothing in terms of furthering the plot.

Same for Liv Tyler (from Armageddon), whose role as the love interest to Roy is pretty empty and superficial and while they use her as one of his motivations to get back to Earth, they do nothing with this character at all.

unfocused and pointless .

Rolling on a straight in 2nd gear, the expected ending gets dragged out a bit.

However, his character is very stoic in this film and I felt this made his character bland and just somebody I guess I didn't really care about.

In general, this movie is not a SciFi, it is extremely boring and is just a waste of time.

Another Malickian theme was the plodding of existential dread like watching paint dry and your mind wanders about in space .

Nothing happens other than you watching close up of brad's very aging face most of the time and him narrating some completely irrelevant nonsense that has no bearing on anything over and over and yawn.

Brad Pitt played an incredible role as the astronaut Roy in this film and all the psychological and emotional effects of being trapped in the empty expanse of space.

Well, I wasn't impressed, quite the opposite actually, as "Ad Astra" was a horribly mundane and downright boring movie.

A real snoozer .

While it did handle all the outer space issues in a somewhat scientifically accurate way, Ad Astra was a much slower movie than I thought it would be.

They were the only surprise in this otherwise predictable story.

This is the worst movie I've ever seen .

It's breathtaking!

Brad Pitt (apart from his face) The monkeys,the boring, dull, non sensical plot.

and very boring.

I am a space film addict nourished on the 2001 space films but with a poor and confusing story line this film is an opoprtunity wasted.

The plot is so formulaic its not even funny, and its pretty much initial idea, and ending, and the middle is filled with well, filler.

Don't waste your time, just watch those good movies instead.

I'm never going to get the time back in my life I lost watching this dreadful, slow, and shamefully dismal film.

But the colors were too drab.

Also the atmosphere was stunning.

Slow and boring...

If you're looking for another Star Wars epic or an action packed thriller this movie is not for youI personally research the movies I watch.

Stunning Visuals, Solid Acting and Strong Character Development vs.

Nothing happens, it is sloooooow.

There's cool stuff (that chase on the lunar vehicles might be the best part of the movie and the initial action scene is pretty thrilling) and they pose some interesting questions about what would commercial space travel look like.

His father was so immersed in his project (looking at he stars / going too far) that he lost sight of what life is really about (love, family, caring).

Wow that was boring with no imagination at all, the story also was very bland.

A movie that tries to convince you it is more than what it actually is - a borefest attempting to create a sophisticated plot through vague and nonsensical narration that is supposedly backed by a deeper meaning.

), and that's about the only bit of action - the whole film is pointless and I'm not quite sure what it is about...

Fell asleep.

If you're after a good evenings entertainment save yourself some money and the absolute boredom we endured.

Virtually next to nothing happened throughout the course of this movie, and running at a bit more than 2 hours, it made for a long, slow paced and rather tedious movie experience.

There were some decent elements that made an impression, but the majority of the film felt too slow and stretched out way too much.

Overall plain boring appart from a few scenes throughout the movie.

Not only is the entire point of his character that he struggles to feel - not an ideal trait for the guy that's going to hold the whole film together with very little human interaction - the writing is so cliched, dull and basic that it could be a 13-year-old's Interstellar fan faction.

this movie has no story.. Brad Pitt should be embarrassed to be the headliner.

However, as if testing the audience to see how much the director can get away with , the scientific blundering and slap-dash handling of the plot become more and more difficult to withstand, until there's the hope for a REALLY REALLY good ending to make up for all this confusion - which never comes.

It did feel a little slow though.

Cure for insomnia .

What was boring?

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Enjoyable Film with some great visuals .

It started slow and I didn't really feel any urgency in the plot.

Bad premise, bad writing and boring story, visually stunning .

We would be picking up speed, but the tension curve is a straight line going nowhere.

Brad Pitt reads the script in a flat monotone voice.

2 hours of the most boring scifi film i have seen in my life.

If you feel like wasting your time and money then go see it, other than that save yourself from the boredom.

You expecting the backstabbing, betrayal, and a real villain, but you end up watching a man psychollogy who has false assumption, who want to get closure on his father dissapearance, and it turn out to be an unexpected answered.

A slow sci fi movie that leaves a lot to be desired.

It was visually stunning with both its effects and Cinematography.

'Ad Astra' partly makes up for its predictable plot with inspired background world building and visuals.

Nothing happened, it wasn't important, it didn't add anything to the "plot".

Beautiful but slow .

This film is a boring waste of time that takes over two hours to get a point across.

This movie simply says "dont waste your life trying to explore unknown.

Ad Astra is a sci-fi masterpiece, a thrilling, excellently paced drama that's both a grand adventure across the stars and an intimate story about the bond between parent and child.

Cures insomnia .

Just a very flat, plodding, scene to scene with very dull dialogue.

Im not even sure what happened it was so boring, no plot, no character progression.

What a complete waste of time.

This movie was pretty much equivalent to watching paint dry.

And 100% those sequences are pointless to the plot.

What's truly engaging here, though, is Pitt's performance and the character study of Roy.

One of the most boring, slow films I have ever seen since Elysium .

I watch this on premiere day and I left the theater feeling adventurous after watching it.

Too drawn out.

Film effective gives a fascinating (and in my opinion realistic) portrayal of the political situation of a future Moon colony.

Realistic space adventure, slow and intelligent music in the background.

Scientifically incorrect but an enjoyable movie.

No story or plot, spotty action and no follow-through, total disconnect.

Probably the worst movie this year and worst Brad Pitt movie to date.

But this was a tiresome slog, hyped because of the big names involved.

Very good effects Very good acting Story line week and boring Anti climatic ending

subtitled "2 Hours of Watching Paint Dry" .

Don't waste your money.

Ad Astra: Descent Into Boredom .

For many, the film may seem dull at times, and it does have its moments of being so.

Brilliant start ends in expected boring finale .

With an intense opening scene, crashing over you like a wave of stimuli.

The rest of it was as dull as dishwater.

His longing to make amends with his father were tiresome.

Ad Astra is a film above the average of today's movies, with good performances by Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones, an interesting story that fulfills what is proposed, a protagonist with personality, but when the film is Exciting ends up being something fanciful.

but this is a snooze fest...

However as Pitt's character travels further away from human civilization, scenes get far more drawn out and just plain boring.

Repetitive .

Boring .

Boring would be the one word to describe the whole experience for me anyway.

I think this movie is really good when it comes to psychology issues especially how to deal with stressful, intense and hard to believe situation.

Regarless of the magnificent space views and the breathtaking visions of the near future of space exploration.

This is a veeeery slow CGI drama with nice background music, with no other interest, space alien or whatever.. If you need to see it, there's a channel in youtube "Movies In 5 Minutes" where you can see a short summary.

It feels really slow and drawn out at times.

Stunning .

I got bored.

Even if this movie does note each the level of interstellar it is still worth watching

It was just all over the place and unjustifiably slow.

Instead what you have is pretentious, heavy handed, and boring.

One of the most mind blowing and intense, yet engaging experiences.

His acting was fine, the script & storyline were ---BORING!!

It falls flat with its tedious science fiction story and the direction is a bit slow.

Apart from It the story is boring and superficial in my opinion.

" or "Moon" was boring just wait until you get a gander at this one.

It becomes too slow.

This movie is a really slow burner and not a lot is happening.

Bad plot, boring, a long Brad Pitt dissertation on most the movie.

Ad Astra not only explores the near-future, but it actively transports you there, with its realistic characters, realistic and vast setting, a realistic but highly engaging plot and absolutely stunning visuals.

But they went full heroic and included his rushed return to Earth too eventually ending the film instead with a slightly pretentious quote.


It tries to be similar to the confrontation at the end of Apocalypse Now, however it ends in a predictable manner that makes the entire journey seem like a waste of time.

Best avoided, or used as an insomnia aid.

A boring movie 2 hours of torture in the movie theater

Tiresome despite the actors .

I know the positive reviewers would like others to believe that those that find the film boring are incapable of appreciating the deeper messages of the film or the high quality performances, but I can say personally, while recognizing and appreciating all of those things, I was still bored out of my mind.

Other than the great cinematography, this was a complete waste of my time and money.

Everything about it is flawed, poorly executed and incredibly boring.

Meaningless Jesuit propaganda garbage.

Visually magnificent, everything else a chore and a bore.

eventless dull slow boring more entertainment could be had watching grass grow seems to be the fashion at the moment for "lets see how dull we can be" this is a top ten contender !!!!!

For me this movie delivered both: visually beautiful and stunning special effects, and a deep and touching meditation about a failed father and son-relationship causing so much grief and loneliness.


Well I got news for you, don't waste your time or money.

Dont waste your time .

" Perhaps the current movie culture has dumbed us to so called 'intelligent' movies but my wife and I walked out of this one thinking that we had been sat there watching paint dry.

Slow like a space walk .

Super slow movie with no scientific angle to it.

" post to show just how much of a waste of time this was...

This is a slow burner so if you don't like that this is going to be painful for you.

Neither are there to move narrative or charchter forwrd though, and as such feel terribly contrived.

I'm still wondering if I hallucinated it out of boredom to be honest).

But I thought this was a pleasant surprise, its much like the director's previous effort The Lost City of Z which I also liked despite it being too long and slow.

Pitt's performance is excellent, and what the storyline says about man's place in the universe is unexpected and fascinating.

is a masterfully crafted film, with stunning visuals, profound drama, and a brilliant lead performance from Pitt...

There is virtually no storyline at all.

Cons: Extremely Slow moving Boring Relationship between father and son was unrealistically COLD Story had holes in it Sometimes, common sense was missing in spaceResult; My wife was sleeping during the second half of the movie.

Ad Astra begins with a few riveting moments of fast-paced action.

More than the waste of $ to watch it, it robbed me of time I'll never get back.

It is a bit confusing at times and the film is quite slow in general.

I was waiting for it to finish as walking to the car was more entertaining.

What a tedious 2 hours that was.

It was just too slow...

Long,slow, boring non-existing plot.

Brad Pitt being bored in space .

The movie is boring.

Captain/Captain's death bore no importance to the story, animal bore no weight to the story, that whole scene came and went with me asking, 'why'.

Very boring.

It was worth watching.

It has good visuals, a slow but attentive pace and some thrilling scenes in space.

It's a slice of life film disguised as sci-fi, falsely advertised as some action adventure when it's 2 hours of tedious torture.

The story is dull and the point of it all is just uninteresting.

Had a few interesting parts but they did too good of job showing how boring long term space travel world be.

The movie is claustrophobic, slow, boring and abuses the notion of a "captive audience".

Mind numbingly boring.

A waste of time, when i saw Brad Pitt i trusted I'll watch a good movie, it was so boring and pointless movie , i just lost two hours

Simply put - dissapointing, cliche, and irrelevant.

Dreadfully tedious movie, spent surrounded by other poor unfortunates who were also struggling in vain to stay awake.

Our new found crew follows a call for help and finds an empty ship.

No story.

Pretentious gimmicky cinematics without substance .

)Don't waste your time on this.

Extremely long and boring.

One of the worst movies that i saw in my life ever , I really regret to attend this movie with my friends in the cinema , its a shame ...

Zzzzzzzz .

The bright neon advert signs on display on the outdoors of the lunar town use valuable energy and are directed towards empty lunar surface...

Ridiculous science, boring plot, one-note "performance" by Pitt .

Dreadful plot with a number of laugh out load moments, so slow it would only have lasted 10 minutes without the long baleful looks into space.

I liked only the soundtrack, the movie is just a waste of time.

It was boring as hell, I nearly fell asleep four times while watching this garbage.

I FELL ASLEEP watching this piece of crap.

A snoozer.

The story feels really slow at times and probably could have been edited down a bit.

"Ad Astra" is one of the best directed science-fiction movies ever made - its stunning visuals reminded me of "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Interstellar.

There were literally 3 people in the theater who fell asleep and one started snoring and one person let out a yell when they woke up.

Don't waste your time .

Snooze Fest .

So Ad Astra is really Bad Astra & I'm Sad Astra to report that the story with his Dad Astra is a Fad Astra & if they'd changed it just a Tad Astra then it could've been Rad Astra instead of being a boring film about this Lad Astra who's Mad Astra about the childhood he never Had Astra...

I tire of cliche and desire more introspective dialogue.

Visually stunning...

It's rushed and dull though...

There were soooo many disappointments throughout this movie, I was actually getting bored watching it.

This viewer found himself struggling to stay awake about a third of the way through this picture.

The psychological aspect is mostly non-existent, interrupted as it is by often pointless action sequences that serve only to pad out an otherwise short story.

As a True sci fi fanatic i can honestly say this movie is a waste of time.

At the same time, this film fails on an important note where the aforementioned others have succeeded, to follow the breathtaking space endeavor visuals with an equally thrilling plot, appealing to the general audience as well as to space buffs such as myself.

Beautiful Film with no plot.

Pitt's performance is striking, the cinematography is breathtaking, the story is beautiful.

Call me sappy but we all need a message in the plot once in a while, and I can relate to those who were bored to death and feel gypped.

Overall though despite it's flaws Ad Astra was entertaining and subverted my expectations and I can see myself watching this again in the future.

Every cliche in the book.

I think could have made the movie more enjoyable if it had a team orientation not him alone.

), the plot is dull and there is no resolution (of the type the Sci-Fi audience would expect).

Pitt's heavy handed, robotic performance was all but unwatchable.

The only science fiction movie that left me very satisfied as I walked out of the theater was The Martian.

Thank's GOSH to see this movie online, the worst movie ever, boring aboslute nothing to see,

Yawn .

Actually started to fall asleep half way through and I do love a good Sci Fi.

Then there is this pointless boring fight scene between pirate and good guy buggies that is just meh other than the old guy accompanying Pitt gets shot so can't go.

Not worth watching, plain old boring .

Together with a riveting score.

Next, it's off to Mars but hey, we've got tons of extra fuel to slow down and check on some random space station that's for no reason on the way (space is vast unless it interferes with meaningless sub plot drama).

A great place for introspection, but alone, and a bit boring, and with a very long journey ahead to search for Dad.

Pointless and a waste of time.

Slow, a lot of , a lot of close-ups on Brad Pitt.

As empty & cold as Space .

boring in space .


The worst part in this movie is the actual finale which is so predictable that you're simply left wondering why you just spent all that runtime for simply nothing.


One of the worst movie I've ever seen .

Boring as Hell.

Enjoyable film.

My God, so boring.

But what saved the movie for me was the good work by Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones, the fact that Roy McBride is a different kind of protagonist for this genre and being disappointed with more heralded efforts like First Man (lack of a compelling main character, slow pace) and even Interstellar (sketchy science, disappointing ending, odd character choices).

The visuals are the only thing worth watching.

One of the worst movies I've seen.

Had to leave early because it puts me to sleep, while another lady walked out with me at the same time.

Beautiful, but meandering, dull, and incoherent.

Every scene in the movie is breathtaking and beautifully shot.

Slow movieI personally can really enjoy slow productions.

Waste of time and money I don't know what's the purpose of this movie If anyone knows please tell me

To a large degree, the film was more boring than anything else and it never achieved high notes.

Yes it is slow.

I fell asleep 3 times during this bore fest.

His journey is very well written as he's sent to discover more about his father and the lessons he learns throughout the runtime are extremly compelling.

This had to be THE slowest, boring movie I have seen in a very long time.

When I walked out of the theater I asked a guy sitting near me what rating he would give the movie and he said "a negative 3?

I recently watched 2001 Space Odyssey for the first time, and it was so slow that I had to fast forward some sections.

Utterly Boring, their was nothing about this movie that made you believe in anything that they were trying to get accross to the viewers.

It has a great cast but the script is so slow moving and choppy that I barely could get to the end.

But the overall feeling is an exact cross between "Apocalypse Now" and "2001: A Space Odyssey" or "Solaris" - in other words a slow, calm consideration of the psychological effects of a long journey towards an unknown destination, interesting enough in itself.

This was the most boring movie I've ever seen.

This film looks really nice and has some great acting but the story is just boring and drawn out.

Utterly absorbing and beautifully shot.

Dont read negative reviews towards this movie, just go with an empty head and enjoy the ride.

The direction is slow and boring at times.

So slow and uneventful.

Honestly the worst movie i have ever seen

But the story was just moving along so slow and without any surprises that it really left me wishing I hadn't wasted the two hour watching it.

This is one one the most boring movies i ever watched...

However, some of the slower scenes were kind of unnecessary.

Its baser elements of action and terror are surprising and exciting, as director Gray displays a real skill for knowing when to slow down and when to blast off.

Pitt's character on his voyage to meet/find father, while nothing happens.

I liked it but didn't love it, it had moments that I thought was visually stunning but I felt like it was a little too slow for me to fall in love with it.

Kinda Fun, Kinda Suspenseful and Kinda Good Script...

The storyline was cliched and predictable, and would have been much better set here on Earth.

If you like good Sci Fi don't waste your time and money.

Yet, at what must be monumentally high speeds, they can still slow down, stop along the way to battle evil baboons, and get going again.

The movie is claustrophobic, slow, boring.

The actions sequences are mundane: they're nothing new, they do nothing to advance the plot (literally nothing) and they appear to exist only to satisfy a studio requirements that action sequences are ubiquitous in space movies.

Way, way too boring and a waste of time.


There were moments of fun but mostly zzzzzzzz.

Long, Drawn Out, Tedious .

I found a video on Facebook of an angry cat more entertaining.

One of the worst movies.

It's a great looking film that can also be pretty dull at points.

A waste of your time and money .

Now when I look at it it was waste of my time and money to go and see this.

This movie has no plot or meaning whatsoever.

black woman as general, another Hollywood rewriting history propaganda .

If you want to know if you should go see it, ,then no, Don't waste your time or money.

Snorefest .

This was very long and very slow movie don't waste time to go and watch it as very un interesting film

I guess it's both a compliment and a criticism that a movie could make you feel so empty?

The worst movie i have ever seen, every scene is absolutely ridiculous.

3 Stars only because it has a great cast whose talents were wasted on this dull slow SLOW paced zero if a movie.

Waste of time No story Endless plot holes You only learn maybe 2 of the characters names BaboonsThis movie tries to have a deeper meaning And really tries to make you care about characters who have had 0 development and speak for maybe 30 seconds every 10 minutes It is by far The worst movie I have seen since Interstellar

Slow and steady .

Very boring and disappointing space film .

Given to the worst movie award winner in 2019.

The fact that there are so many people who found this film terrible and intellectually confusing makes me lose hope in the human race ...

But the worst is that there is no story really.

Coming into a genre well represented in the last decade by many great films, Ad Astra doesn't necessarily overwhelm but it managed to tell a well written and executed narrative in a very minimalistic approach, as you watch the film, you notice that it doesn't focus on the scientific details, it strives to address a higher meaning and that's the very core of the movie, it succeeded to make me invest myself into the story, granted, it is very easy for me to do so as I find the idea of the exploration of the universe extremely fascinating.

Reflections on his mistakes in his marriage were tiresome.

An astronaut alone in outermost space and I'm bored.

Stunning and most beautiful.

Definitely the worst movie I've seen in years!

Boring .


Boring to the stars .

Tedious, plodding, boring, and just plain meaningless.

The slow build to the end is not justified what-so-ever and the inner conflict of Roy is "solved" in what feels like no time at all and you're left thinking to yourself, "So what?

After this, I feel that mentioning the Pitt's magic body, that can withstand G forces nobody else can so the plot can send him floating through space and be unharmed by stuff moving at very different speeds, from spaceships to rocks, is nearly a waste of time.

So boring .

It made me fall asleep constantly.

The opposite problem may in fact arise, where you may find it too slow at times.

Everything in between is just tedious, boring, slow-moving, and incoherent space garbage.

Tedious at best.

I actually fell asleep during the last hour of it.

Do expect a slow phase (if you like that) and not that much action.

It started off slow and stayed that way, the story line could have been much much better, the acting was robotic, and the whole things was dim and dreary.

As empty as the vacuum of space !

This movie is gorgeous to watch, IMAX it was breathtaking and the score was simple and added depth to it.

Worst movie I've suffered through in a long time.

Above all : it was extremely slow....

But the plot-less script is a real chore to get through, and to top it off.....

Slow movie .

The story is quite a slow burner, although I can understand some saying it's more of a plodder.

A superb metaphor with stunning visuals .

This film is shallow, pretentious, poorly written and executed .

What an exciting life the moon pirate has, well worth the risk.

It starts out pretty intense, then slows a bit, and soon picks up.

The plot is ultimately pointless because the two sides clash so hard neither can properly be resolved, leading to a non-sensical half based finale (if you can even all it that).

Ad Astra is one of just a few high-budget Hollywood movies that explores the increasingly popular and exciting theme of near-future human space exploration in a realistic and serious light (other examples of such films being The Martian and Interstellar).

So if you're man under 40 you'll be most probably bored with this movie and there's no point seeing it, or taking your girlfriend or wife to see it, although she might enjoy it more.

If you find yourself thinking, that sounds boring, or sounds confusing, then this probably isn't the film for you.

Another performance that absolutely stands out and is very underrated is the performance by Tommy Lee Jones who really is engaging in the short screentime given to him, especially towards the ending.

The movie is meant to be slow and concentrated on subtle emotional cues of the protagonist.

It was kinda boring to watch this movie unless you are a fan of cgi.

Writing is not amazing, actors are good, pacing is so slow in the 2nd half it's hard to keep focus.

No science, no story, nothing interesting.
