Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
In Earth's future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand (Michael Caine), a brilliant NASA physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth's population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind's new home.

And boy is it ever. BOY is it ever. As one who knows the physics of what's happening (and I recommend Kip's book "The Science of Interstellar" to further explain it), it's breath-taking. What would a worm-hole really look like? What would a black hole really look like? By the way, the digital arts team won an Oscar and were published in scientific journals for the first-ever accurate portrayal of a black hole. That alone is worth it. What happens with relativity as you approach a black hole? What would time look like as a physical dimension?
I also found the story very compelling: mankind a few generations from now, struggling to conquer the stars before their home planet loses its ability to support them, with all of the drama of families trapped on opposite ends of relativity and across solar systems with little to no hope. It was breath-taking.
For those who don't like it, it might simply be that the meaning and messages aren't all getting across. Isn't that the case in any movie though? Anyway, as one who understands the science happening, I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Thank you, Kip, for your vision and bringing this gem to us all.
As far s the picture and sound, wow. First one negative, the voice tracks lack gain and is too quiet. On a TV it might not matter, but on a home theater, you will need to crank up the center channel a bit. And the bass / low frequencies are truly something to behold, the cleanest and most powerful I've ever heard on a movie soundtrack...I brought the sub-woofer down about 1.5 db. Once properly balanced, the sound track on this movie will absolutely amaze those with a good home theater system....it will rock you, and to me it surpassed movie theater sound by a good margin. Picture is simply stunning. Shot partly on 35 mm and partly on imax 70 mm, and then combined with 4k and 5.6k visual effects and a 4k digital intermediate, this is as good as it gets today. Unlike most "4K" movies that are really fake 4K, this is the real deal...no shortcuts. On my 70" 4k Samsung TV, it looked truly amazing.
For those of you complaining about the streaming version not impressing you, please understand something. If you want to see REAL 4k quality, get a 4k blu ray player. 4k streams are so compressed and lossy compared to a UHD Blu Ray it's like night and day. Streaming may be the future, but it is not the present, at least not in 4k (and I'm an avid cord-cutter to boot). Neither providers or end users have the bandwidth to process a true UHD Blu Ray quality stream at this time, period, end of story. "4k" streams are a JOKE compared to UHD Blu Ray, and a bad joke at that. LG now has $100 UHD Blu Ray players, and it's worth every penny, so consider one if video quality is super important to you your family as it is mine.
For someone who has nearly 3 hours to devote to a pretty intense movie with some of the most amazing video and sound you have every encountered, it's well worth the time. For those wanting something light-hearted and quick-paced, look elsewhere.

Scénario intéressant, acteurs au top et images d'une beauté renversante constituent ses principales qualités.
J'ai particulièrement apprécié les scènes sur les différentes planètes explorées qui sont très belles mais également très épurées et sans les artifices extravagants de certains autres films.
Ici pas de bataille spatiale épique ou de monstre extraterrestre avec 8 tentacules par exemple.
Ce film est extrêmement réaliste un peu dans le style de Gravity mais dans une autre galaxie.
Au niveau négatif, j'ai trouvé ce film un peu trop long surtout que certaines scènes ne sont pas très simples à appréhender.
C'est un peu le problème avec les histoires d'espace-temps ou de trou de ver qui peuvent vite devenir compliquées à suivre.
Sinon pour le reste Interstellar est une merveille de très haut niveau.
However, don't try and analyse the storyline too deeply, because in my opinion it contains a major flaw.
I won't elaborate because it would contain spoilers, better to just sit back and enjoy the spectacle.
Moving and heartfelt but exhilarating action too. Preferred this to Gravity.
Word of warning: Lots of Science/Time travel mumbo jumbo :-) You don't "need" to understand it to enjoy this film
