Comments: The shot of Tommy Lee Jones as the creature from [REC] was cool!

Loved the visuals, the framing, and much of the angsty face-work. The synthy smooth soundtrack worked often, but all the expository monologue/dialog was cringe-worthy to me.

Summary: Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.
