For a film that traverses the solar system, depicted to stunning effect, there’s a deceptive sense of simplicity when Ad Astra isn’t thrilling with truly nerve-wracking action/sci-fi set pieces in Earth’s orbit, on the Moon and beyond.

Ad Astra is a sometimes compelling space drama, but it can't quite match the heights of both Gravity or Interstellar.

Sombre, stirring, ridiculous and just shy of sublime.

Existential but also intimate, Ad Astra is a stunning, sensitive exploration of the space left by an absent parent - and the infinite void of actual space.

Sublime and stupendous. Beautiful, bold and remarkably executed, this is Gray's masterpiece, driven by a career-best turn from Pitt.

It's often thrilling, occasionally improbable, sometimes confounding, but like its director, 'Ad Astra' is never bound by the gravitational pull of the ordinary.

Pitt is working the minor keys to sublime effect ... But while less is more for the actor, that's not necessarily the case for the movie.

It's an extraordinary picture, steely and unbending and assembled with an unmistakable air of wild-eyed zealotry.

The movie, for what it is, isn't a cheat. At heart, it's a short story set in space, decorated with major FX (the double rings of the evanescent blue Neptune are its most memorable image), held together by Pitt's stalwart presence.
