Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Interstellar is thrilling to watch across its moments but ultimately unmemorable; I feel it slipping away from me even now.
Fresh: This is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.
Fresh: Jessica Chastain deserves Best Supporting Actress consideration for her work. One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.
Fresh: This is not only a tremendously exciting space adventure... It's also a rich and thoughtful meditation on time and space and gravity.
A Rational Review
Reading through these reviews, I realized that everyone needs to take one large step back. The five star reviews claim it's the best movie of all time, which is certainly not true, and the one star reviews claim it to be one of the worst of all time, which is also not the case. Seeing this, I figured it was time for someone to be reasonable about this film. Here's the deal: this movie is no Citizen Kane, it's no 8 1/2, it's no The Godfather, heck, it's not even as good as Memento, Nolan's actual best film. That being said it's also not anywhere as near as bad as Troll 2.
This is a perfectly okay science-fiction drama from a pretty good director of popular blockbusters, but it certainly has problems. The sound mix is off, Ann Hathaway's character is underdeveloped, and the end twist can best be described as "Shamalayn-esque." It is a good movie, with some solid performances and pretty good action, as well as believable human drama, but in the end it merely accomplishes what Nolan set out to do, and that's to make an intelligent blockbuster. This being said, however, I think that people tend to confuse a movie that makes them think a little bit with high art, which this is not.
I am not a troll, nor a Nolan-hater, just a Nolan fan that knows this director can and has done much better movies.
This is one of the best movies i’v ever seen! And The soundtrack is amazing.
Christopher Nolan has made perhaps his finest film to date. If you're looking for a shoot-em-up, stereotypical action flick, don't buy this. But, if you want an intellectually stimulating, original, well written, family-friendly film, this is an absolute must have. Throw in a fantastic score from Hans Zimmer, along with possibly one of the greatest movie scenes ever (the Docking sequence) and you have an all-timer on your hands. Enjoy ;)
