Wow... Wow... Wow
Verified purchase
Wow... I've just literally finished watching this. My first thoughts this was some amazing Sh**! I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all. I'm also trying to play different endings in my head that I would have preferred. This is something that when it finishes you wish it would just continue on for another 20 minutes so you can see the happy ever after end, a second time round. So many different endings I wished this had played out in, but given the complexity of it all, it totally fits why it ended the way it did. Sad, happy ending, with a Wow what did I just watch?

A recommended middle of the day film or early morning.

Excellent film transcending current knowledge
Verified purchase
There are strong similarities to 2001 A Space Odyssey - mankind about to destroy itself but 'rescued' by Star Gods who have long given up physical forms and exist as thoughts in space... Arthur C Clarke would have either loved this or hated it for stealing his ideas. Even the 'Cooper Station' with its bio-cylinder is straight out of Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama.
It's great to see space being treated properly, with no sound, straight trajectories and rotationally induced gravity - well done, that Director.
The science is way beyond our understanding - no-one, on earth, knows how gravity actually works...only that it exists, created by mass and can be measured as a force.

A stunning film and wonderfully acted
Verified purchase
I wasn't sure what to really expect when I started watching this, friends had raved about it but it has been four years since its release and I felt a little half-hearted about watching it. I admit it does get a little slow in places, but this film is one I found most rewarding. The acting is superlative, the cinematography excellent and the score is sublime. It is genuinely a beautiful film to watch. I feel this may require more than one run through, but it's not a has hard to follow as friends had made it seem. I highly recommend this film, it shows humanity at its best and its worst, but the endurance of the human spirit and the drive to survive is obvious throughout.

Really can't understand the poor reviews. Sure

Really can't understand the poor reviews. Sure, there enough holes in the plot to make it look like Florida, and I have to concur with the reasoning met out by the one and two star brigade, but this isn't a poor film. I went in to it with fairly low expectations since I'd figured it wasn't the sort of hard sci-fi I generally try and follow. With my expectations realigned, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Comments have been made on the sound quality; seemed ok to me (not great) through surround sound and headphones.

Would have given it 5 stars except for the bit 2/3's the way through with Matt Damon; haven't got a clue what any of it was about even though I watched that bit twice. Could just be because I didn't watch it straight through - it is a long film!

If you liked Contact, you'll love this.

Captivatingly original odyssey
Verified purchase
In the recent past a black hole opened. 9 years ago NASA, realising the earth was doomed, sent 12 pioneers in separate ships into the hole to look for habitable planets. None returned or were heard from again. McConaughey, pursuing a seemingly lost drone, stumbles upon a secret project destined to send a crew once again into the abyss. He joins Hathaway, Bentley and Gyasi on a make-or-break expedition to save humanity. A haunting soundtrack, take the protagonists deep into uncharted space. Irwin’s calm voicing of the loyal and ever-present metallic stickle brick shaped TARS robot proves reassuring throughout. The visual effects are stunning, though often the camera cuts away too soon to fully absorb the spectacles on offer. Damon portrays a worthy enough deep space adversary, whilst Afflek’s signature grimacing and aggression adds nothing to the cut scenes of drama unfolding back on earth. The movie manages to maintain all important hope, and the intermittent intense scenes are barely frequent enough, but were delivered with better effect in Sunshine. The ejection scene and resulting fifth dimension odyssey were both brilliant and highly original. Many firsts to enjoy then, and an absorbing way to spend three hours of your life.

A Cool Sci-fi Slingshot, Beyond The Event Horizon....
Verified purchase
In took me three years, until I finally viewed this sci-fi gem, and I'm glad I did after missing it on the big screen. Certainly a fun few hours spent. Even its ending gives hope that humanity will survive somehow (won't spoil it). All performances enjoyed, characters are great, direction is solid, the space stuff and tech was cool (loved the bots too) and overall a good tale, that treads the sci-fi and real space knowledge well enough, to not need to have everything explained & potentially perplex the viewer. Chris Nolan and crew, strikes gold again, and like the Batman trilogy, I'd have no problem having this a film grace a collection, if I had and could afford one in my life boat. Interstellar is a gleaming sci-fi highlight for the 21st century and far beyond the event horizon. Let's hope we can see more fun yet intelligently told tales like it in time, and also that sci-fi can be much more than finding and blasting aliens to death. ((hey, The Arrival says hi)) ^ ^ Excellent and a high five earned from me!

Do your brain a favour: switch off before watching

How did such a stellar cast get sucked into this Mariana Trench of a movie? The deepest pit on Earth could not hold a candle to this hokum-stuffed, platitude-filled, interminably vacuous film about a black hole. The actors mumbled their way through it (probably mentally drafting a note to fire their agents), the dialogue was thankfully inaudible, the cinematography and direction were dire, the music epically loud but eerily dull, the space scenes were shot inside a Weetabix box with a couple of bits of Meccano thrown in, the entire theme of the movie could be summed up as, "Daddy, where are you?" - and poor Matt Damon was probably wishing this was the past he'd irretrievably forgotten as Jason Bourne. All in all, a clunker. One of the other reviewers has explained why it received such an astonishly high rating from IMDb: the negative reviews were just deleted. I wonder how much that cost the studio?

Absolutely brilliant. 3hrs long is not enough.
Verified purchase
I find it hard to understand how some have given poor ratings. For me, this film is right up there as one of my all time favorites.
The pertinent and very real possibility that our earth will no longer sustain us in the future and our reaching out to the stars for a home,
weaved with the scientific realities of relativity and space travel and it's devastating impact on our time limitations as humans brought it home so elegantly.
So many breathtaking moments..I will not spoil it for you. One I will watch many times in the future.
