Movie Reviews

  • it's a film thats well shot; George Clooney delivers a solid performance; but mostly it’s a tired drama built on familiar story beats that, in retrospect, is rendered occasionally nonsensical in moments thanks to its bad twist ending
    2 of 5 by Eric Eisenberg [CinemaBlend ]
  • if "The Midnight Sky" has the sombre tone of a high-minded art-house project, it has the bland design, sentimental characterisation and flimsy plotting of a children's TV movie. The story may have links with today's reality, but it never feels real
    2 of 5 by Nicholas Barber [BBC ]
  • George Clooney's Netflix thriller is engaging; While it struggles through some awkward plot twists and clunky tangents, "The Midnight Sky" never loses grasp of the chilly atmosphere that inspires every moment
    Review rate : B- by Eric Kohn [IndieWire ]
  • George Clooney returns with the strangely moving sci-fi melodrama; It's almost a stranger movie than the filmmakers seem to realize, which gives it a bittersweet edge
    Review rate : B- by Jesse Hassenger [AV Club ]
  • from a technical standpoint, this might be Clooney's finest work as a director; But as a storyteller, "The Midnight Sky" is an irritating experience
    2 of 4 by Barry Hertz [The Globe and Mail ]
  • flanked by a strong supporting cast, Clooney delivers a thoughtful reflection on the toll of environmental devastation; this quiet, meditative new film is emotionally involving from tense start to poignant finish
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a visually striking, emotional and bold sci-fi, telling a bleak, yet oddly hopeful, post-apocalyptic tale of a scientist trying to save a group of astronauts; an affecting and ambitious sci-fi that could well be a major hit for Netflix this Christmas
    4 of 5 by Ian Sandwell [Digital Spy ]
  • a negligible new sci-fi, which floats blandly in the cosmos, becalmed between two separate storylines, apparently planetstruck with wonderment; George Clooney guides the performances competently, but the story drifts pointlessly into space
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • a moving tale, by turns muscular and poetic; Swinging between ice and space, Clooney has upped his directorial ambition and delivered a big-scale, big-hearted story, even if it struggles to match the films it riffs on
    3 of 5 by Nick De Semlyen [Empire Magazine ]
  • "The Midnight Sky" is a bleak but moving Netflix sci-fi drama that bites off more than it can chew but is still a mostly satisfying offering from star/director George Clooney
    3 of 5 by Lewis Knight [Daily Mirror (UK) ]
