Claustrophobic and lonely feel to much of the film, more psychological drama than anything else.

Incredible cinematography. Must have been amazing on the big screen. But I found the whole thing rather anti-climactic.

Absurd from beginning to end. A movie without a single moment of drama.
Then there are the scientific insights worthy of some delusional US president.
What led these talents to commit these resources to this project? Madness.

I'm gonna have to agree with most of the "bad review" posters.
We almost left the theater when I first saw this movie...it was that boring.

Not bad actually. The movie is both space and psychological/philosophical fiction. Usually I don’t like both but I think this one has good content. The main character is reading monologues throughout the film, there are some nice monologues and some nice dialogues. The cinematography is good. Interesting movie.

"We are alone in the universe" and "all we have is each other." These are the great "insights" on offer here. Pity you have to go to Neptune and back just to discover something you could've found inside a fortune cookie!

Worst movie we have watched in twenty years. No substance. Horrible plot. Total waste of movie making resources. Do not waste your time on waiting for this horrible movie. Two hours we will never get back. Pitt is poo and Jones is a total disappointment. Waited how many months for this? Too many. Won’t make that mistake again without reading the comments first. Anyone who rated this higher than I did clearly pushed the wrong rating category.

I've been trained to compartmentalize. Seems to be how I live my life.

24 quotes in IMDb; quite a few for a film with few dialogue. The two below is in IMDb already (thanks to the contributors):

I am active and engaged. I'm aware of my surroundings and those in my immediate sphere. I'm attentive. I'm focused on the essential... to the exclusion of all else. I'm unsure of the future... but I'm not concerned. I will rely on those closest to me. And I will share their burdens... as they share mine. I will live... and love.
===
He captured strange and distant worlds in greater detail than ever before. They were beautiful, magnificent... full of awe and wonder. But beneath their sublime surfaces... there was nothing. No love or hate. No light or dark. He could only see what was not there... and missed what was right in front of him.
