ReelViews for movies with music written by 'Max Richter'
The autumn movie season has a history of hosting impressive, thought-based science fiction movies. To that list add "Ad Astra," a film that uses space exploration as a means to look inward at the essence of humanity.
A respectable venture that fails to generate the kind of gripping, compulsively watchable melodrama and adventure needed to keep the audience engaged.
As a dramatic thriller, it does what it needs to do to keep the audience involved and interested.
An attempt to wed philosophical science fiction concepts with bloody horror - a dubious endeavor that somehow works.
The film’s structure is suspect and its ability to develop a bond between the viewer and the characters is strained.
With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.
