Review: Ad Astra

An astronaut must travel on a secret mission to the edge of the Solar System in a bid to save all life as we know it, and perhaps reunite with his estranged father in the process. “Space” movies often fall into two categories, each category with a spectrum with two extremes on either end. The…
