Movie Review: Ad Astra

I really didn’t know what to expect from ‘Ad Astra’. The trailer gave main points, but no real clues where the film might lead to. I was pleasantly surprised by it, mostly because of Brad Pitt’s performance.

Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) goes on a mission across our solar system to uncover the truth about his missing father’s (Tommy Lee Jones) doomed expedition that now, 30 years later, threatens all life on Earth. Through government cover ups and moon pirates, Brad Pitt’s performance never wavers from the stoic control that is his character. It’s not until he finally meets up with his father that his emotions really show. It is no surprise why it garnered Oscar buzz.

‘Ad Astra’ is a combination of the stark ‘First Man’ and the reaching for deeper meanings that was ‘Interstellar’ (a movie that I seemed to be the only person who actually loved). If you liked either of those two, then ‘Ad Astra’ is worth your time. If you’re expecting ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, stay home and watch your netflix.
