STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Critical reaction to Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" is all over the map
  • Some think it's grand, if flawed, while others are more focused on the flaws
  • One consensus is that it's going to be a talked about movie this awards season
 

(CNN) -- In the new movie "Interstellar," Earth is on the brink of becoming uninhabitable and the future of human life rests in the hands of Matthew McConaughey.

Or rather, it rests in the hands of the farmer and former NASA pilot McConaughey plays in "Interstellar," Christopher Nolan's latest epic that is pretty much guaranteed to be a hot topic this awards season.

 
'Batman,' 'Inception' director goes to space
 
"Interstellar" mixes personal, universal
 
Is 'Interstellar' Nolan's masterpiece?

What's less guaranteed is whether moviegoers will take to this sci-fi adventure, which also stars Anne Hathaway as one of the four space explorers who set off through a wormhole near Saturn in search of a more hospitable planet.

Director and co-writer Nolan, who has previously shown his skill with "The Dark Knight" trilogy and "Inception," worked closely with theoretical physicist Kip Thorne to create an experience that would do for audiences what "2001: A Space Odyssey" once did for the director.

"One of my earliest movie memories is my dad taking me to see '2001' in (London's) Leicester Square on the big screen," Nolan recalled in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "It was such an extraordinary feeling: to be taken off this planet and to the furthest reaches of the universe. It has really been an ambition of mine: If I ever had the opportunity to get involved in a large-scale science fiction project, something about exploring our universe, I would try to seize the opportunity."

With this being a Nolan movie, the question of whether "Interstellar" is any good might seem to answer itself. But if you assume that there's consensus on this one, you'd be wrong: critics are having some stark disagreements on whether Nolan's $165 million effort is a success.

Just how wide-ranging are the reviews? Take a look:

Will moviegoers like it?

The New York Times' A.O. Scott thinks it's "hard to imagine that (Nolan's) fans -- who represent a fairly large segment of the world's population -- will be disappointed by 'Interstellar.'"

That's because to Scott, the movie is "a terrifically entertaining science-fiction movie, giving fresh life to scenes and situations we've seen a hundred times before," even if it does "occasionally (stumble) over pompous dialogue or overly portentous music."

The New Yorker, however, predicts that only the diehard science geeks are going to be into this.

"('Interstellar') is ardently, even fervently incomprehensible, a movie designed to separate the civilians from the geeks, with the geeks apparently the target audience," said the magazine's David Denby. "There's no doubting Nolan's craft ... but, overall, 'Interstellar' -- a spectacular, redundant puzzle, a hundred and sixty-seven minutes long -- makes you feel virtuous for having sat through it rather than happy that you saw it."

Is the story emotionally resonant?

One of the big aspects to "Interstellar" is its focus on relationships, especially the relationship between parent and child. McConaughey's former pilot/farmer, Cooper, has two children he leaves behind in hope of finding a new place for humans to thrive; his preteen daughter, played by Mackenzie Foy, is particularly distraught over his abandonment.

But that's not all: While our space explorers are off on their search, time is moving differently for them than it is on Earth. What feels like a handful of hours out in another galaxy is the equivalent of years passing for Cooper's kids -- so many years, in fact, that Jessica Chastain and Casey Affleck also star in "Interstellar" as the adult versions of Cooper's children.

That sounds like it's tailor-made to be gut-wrenching, but critics were conflicted over the plot's emotional impact.

"It's rare that a big-budget studio movie has such cerebral aspirations and such startling strengths and weaknesses. The visual spectacle can be breathtaking, but the emotional, earth-bound saga fails to be as moving," said USA Today's Claudia Puig. "The story is ever-ambitious, sometimes riveting and thought-provoking, but also plodding and hokey and not as visionary as its cutting-edge special effects. And at nearly three hours, the film would have benefited from more judicious editing."

Village Voice's Stephanie Zacharek agreed, saying in her review that "whatever his strengths may be, Nolan lacks the human touch. ... (I)n all of Nolan's films, human connection is such a noble idea that it's beyond the grasp of flesh-and-blood people. Nothing in 'Interstellar' is ever ragged or raw or dirty (though there is, admittedly, a lot of dust)."

But then you have Variety's Scott Foundas, who thought "Interstellar" was "more emotionally accessible than his coolly cerebral thrillers and Batman movies. ... like all the director's best work, (it) manages to feel handcrafted and intensely personal."

And what about that ending?

The last act of "Interstellar," says Slate's Dana Stevens, could be the make or break moment for moviegoers.

"How you feel about the movie may hang on your reaction to this scene -- about which I'll say only that, like the end of '2001: A Space Odyssey,' it takes place in a space that seems to exist in between the familiar world we know and some strange alternate dimension," Stevens said in her review. "Going back over and over this crucial moment with a fellow critic on the train home, I could make no sense of it—where was the encounter meant to be taking place? What laws of the universe, or of human relationships, did it purport to disclose? But the sense of visual and spatial wonder this scene evoked in me lingered long after, accompanied by a begrudging respect for the Nolans' sheer commitment to their own peculiar brand of visionary hokum."

But then there's The Wrap's Alonso Duralde, who thought that ending could very well be the curse of the whole film.

To Duralde, the third act is an exercise in "staggering wrongheadedness," an ending that "feels like a betrayal because so much of what comes before it manages to be truly stunning."

So should you see it? If you can afford an IMAX ticket, enjoy space-based drama and can handle disappointment, we say give it a whirl. But before you go, there is one thing you should know about that everyone seemed to agree on: the score, from Hans Zimmer, is really, really loud. You've been warned.

新聞提要
關鍵的反應,克里斯托弗·諾蘭的“星際”是各地圖
有人認為這是盛大的,如果有缺陷,有的則是更側重於缺陷
一個共識是,這將是一個談論這個電影頒獎季
(CNN) -在新電影“星際”地球是成為無法居住的邊緣,人類生活的未來馬修·麥康納的手中掌握。
或者說,它掌握在農民和前美國航空航天局試點麥康納在扮演手中的“星際”,克里斯托弗·諾蘭的是幾乎保證最新的史詩是一個熱門話題頒獎季。
“蝙蝠俠”,“盜夢空間”導演去太空 “星際”融合了個人,萬能 是'星際'諾蘭的大作?
什麼是少保是電影觀眾是否會採取這種科幻冒險,這也是明星安妮·海瑟薇四大太空探險誰穿過土星附近的一個蟲洞,尋找更適宜的星球掀起之一。
導演和聯合編劇諾蘭,誰曾表示他的技巧與“黑暗騎士”三部曲和“盜夢空間”,密切合作的理論物理學家基普·索恩創造一種體驗,將為觀眾做“2001太空漫遊”一次做了導演。
“我的一個最早的電影的記憶是我爸帶我去看看'2001'在(倫敦),萊斯特廣場的大屏幕上,”諾蘭回憶在接受好萊塢記者。“這是這樣一個非凡的感覺:將採取關閉這個星球和宇宙最遠達到它真的是我的野心:如果我有機會涉足大型科幻的項目,一些關於探索我們的宇宙,我會嘗試抓住機會。“
有了這個作為一個諾蘭的電影中,無論是“星際”的問題是什麼好似乎可以回答自己。但是,如果你認為有這一個共識,你就錯了:批評者正在對諾蘭的1.65億美元的努力是否成功的一些鮮明的分歧。
究竟有多廣泛的是評論?一起來看看:
會喜歡它的影迷?
紐約時報“ AO斯科特認為這是“很難想像(諾蘭)的粉絲-誰代表了世界人口的相當大段-將感到失望”。星際'“
這是因為斯科特的電影是“機率非常有趣的科幻電影,給人新鮮的生活場景和情況,我們已經看到過一百遍,”即使它“偶爾(跌跌)在華而不實的對話或過於自命不凡的音樂“。
紐約人,但是,預計只有死忠的科學怪才將要進來。
“('星際')是熱烈,甚至熱烈地不知所云,電影旨在向平民的極客分開,與極客們顯然目標受眾”雜誌的大衛·鄧比說。“沒有疑惑諾蘭的手藝......但是,總體而言,”星際“ - 一個壯觀的,多餘的拼圖,一百67分鐘長 - 讓你感覺良性通過它已經坐了,而不是高興,你看出來了“。
這個故事情感共振?
其中一個大的方面為“星際”是其重點的關係,尤其是父母和孩子之間的關係。麥康納的前飛行員/農民,庫珀,有兩個孩子,他留下在尋找人類茁壯成長一個新的地方的希望; 他的女兒青春期前,由麥肯基·弗依扮演,特別煩亂在他的放棄。
但是,這還不是全部:雖然我們的太空探險是關閉自己的搜索,時間正以不同的方式比他們這是在地球上。怎麼感覺像一把小時在另一個星系是年過庫珀的孩子相當於 - 這麼多年,事實上,傑西卡·查斯頓和凱西·阿弗萊克在“星際”中也出演為庫珀的兒童在成人版本。
這聽起來就像是量身訂做是腸痛苦的,但評論家們發生衝突了劇情的情感衝擊。
“這是罕見的一大預算的工作室電影有這樣的腦願望,這種驚人的長處和短處的視覺奇觀可能是驚人的,但是情感,地球上的傳奇故事不一樣動人,” 今日美國報的克勞迪婭·普格說。“這個故事是永遠雄心勃勃,有時鉚接,發人深省,而且單調乏味和做作,而不是有遠見其尖端的特效。而在近三個小時的電影會從更明智編輯從中受益。”
鄉村之聲的斯蒂芬妮Zacharek同意,在她的審查,“不管他的優勢可能是,諾蘭缺乏人情味的話。......(我)N的所有諾蘭的電影,人際關係就是這樣一個高尚的理念,它是超越肉體的把握-和血的人。沒有在“星際”是有史以來衣衫襤褸或生或臟的(雖然有,無可否認,大量的灰塵)。“
但你有百變的斯科特Foundas,誰想到“星際”是“比他冷靜腦驚悚片和蝙蝠俠電影情緒更加接近。......像所有導演的最好的工作,(它)管理,以手工製作的感覺和強烈的個性。”
又是怎麼回事,結束?
“星際”的最後一幕說,Slate的達納·史蒂文斯,可能是成敗的時刻,電影觀眾。
“你怎麼覺得這部電影可以掛在你的反應,這一幕 - 對此,我只會說,喜歡說的到底是”2001太空漫遊“,它發生在這似乎與存在的空間熟悉的世界裡,我們知道,有些奇怪的選擇維度,“史蒂文斯在她的回顧說。“讓我們回到過去,在與一位同行的批評回家的火車上的關鍵時刻,我沒有任何意義的是,在那裡遇到意味著要發生?宇宙是什麼法律人際關係,或者,它是否意味著披露?但視覺和空間奇妙的在我這一幕引起了徘徊很久之後,伴隨著對諾蘭“純粹決心自己獨特的品牌遠見卓識的廢話的不情願的尊重。”
但是,再有就是該包裹的阿隆索Duralde,誰想到,結局很可能是整部影片的詛咒。
為了Duralde,第三幕是一個鍛煉的“驚人wrongheadedness,”一個結束的“感覺就像是背叛,因為這麼多的前管理是真正令人目瞪口呆的是什麼來。”
所以,你應該看到了嗎?如果你能負擔得起的IMAX票,享受空間為基礎的電視劇,可以處理失望的是,我們說給它一個旋轉。但是,在你走之前,有一件事你應該知道,每個人似乎都同意:得分,從漢斯·齊默,真的,非常響亮。你已經被警告。
