Movie Review: Interstellar

Average: 4.2 (13 votes)

Read this short review of the movie Interstellar. Pay particular attention to the words in bold:

Inspired by Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, Interstellar is a new science fiction movie about a team of space travellers who journey through a wormhole in search of a new habitable planet.

Set in a dystopian future, director Christopher Nolan shows us a world where massive dust storms have destroyed Earth's crops. The situation is so bad that the government decide that mankind needs a new home among the stars. Matthew McConaughey plays the starring roll as the brave space explorer chosen with saving mankind.

Interstellar is probably one of the most audacious science fiction films ever made. The complexities of space are on screen, but the film's message is about mankind, our planet and the consequences of actions.

Our recommendation is get comfortable (the movie is 169 minutes long), enjoy the movie's jaw-dropping visuals and don't worry about getting lost in the science of a very confusing plot.

This epic movie is a dazzling journey that we think will become a science fiction classic.
