'Ad Astra' shoots for stars, but feels lost in space
Outer space has been the setting for some recent compelling films, particularly "Gravity" with Sandra Bullock and "The Martian" starring Matt Damon. Brad Pitt is the latest Hollywood star to don a space suit and the result is "Ad Astra," which is Latin for "To the Stars." Unfortunately, "Ad Astra" gets bogged down with constant voice-overs from Pitt talking about his character's feelings. Liv Tyler plays Pitt's love interest, who appears only in a few minutes of flashback sequences. Probably the biggest disappointment is Tommy Lee Jones, who also has very little screen time for such an important character.
