He was lost. His heart ached. Lost not became of the global catastrophe. Lost because he felt he failed his daughter. Failed to show her the love she deserves, failed to protect her, to direct her - to be there for her. His discovery seemed little, his life seemed empty for he may fail again to be there for his daughter.

Surprisingly Bad for a book movie. Boring story. 3/10 just for the visuals. Waste of time wouldnt recommend.

Bit of a shame really. Could have been much better. A lot was confusing, like we'd missed something. Pieces waiting to be explained but doesn't feel like it will be. Oddly slow. The two separate sections of Earth and Space felt too detached. Then matched by some pretty predictable moments at times. A few reused concepts SPOILER (like hallucinating the daughter with him) - felt reused rather than reimagined. If you're going to use a twist like that then need to do something new to it. One of my favourite film composers Alexandre Desplat scored this. Shame it was not actually well done here. A lot of sections didn't match the mood and didn't work seamlessly as he used to. Classic desplat sounding but just does not match. It's as if he wrote a score and sent it in without working with frames and seeing the film. How odd 😑 I did however watch it through to the end so not the worst of things. Something to have on in the background and make commentary with my dad about 😅 shame with a good cast, could have been much better. I did like the end credits how normal life going on in background Fav part: Sweet Caroline moments 🙋🏽‍♀️ holla

Really bad, it felt like this was some kind of educational video done for secondary science students about global warming... There's a twist that no one watching really cares about near the end that's almost funny its so anticlimactic.

George Clooney hasn't made a movie in ~4 years, and he chose this. I can only assume he needed the paycheck or simply doesn't care anymore. The acting in the movie is very good but the plot and story are mediocre at best. They use every single cliche in the book. You could see what was going to happen a mile away.

Al nivel de lo que está produciendo últimamente Netflix. No le pones stop porque se reconoce la calidad de la producción, pero la historia es mala. Hay tres personajes de sobra, y uno es el de Damián Bichir.

Very slow, uninteresting and very predictable. Would rate lower but the visuals were good.

Doesn’t like the plot, it was quite predictable and movie was too slow to grab the interest

It was ok. I liked the idea & the story but it dragged on so long it felt a bit boring. I probably would have turned it off if I’d of had enough time to start watching a different movie. It’s no gravity.

Not a good one, just very short story streched for too long should have take the story from little earlier to make the movie.

Two stars for The Midnight Sky George Clooney directs and stars in a maudlin science-fiction drama that should be eerily prescient for 2020, but misses the mark

Beautiful art direction, plot is weak at best, could have been so much more.

The narrative is totally slow, in addition to their dialogues they tend to be confusing, not to mention the change of scene that is not quite good.

En uforløst film, der egentlig er flot og meget low-key og med udmærket skuespil af George Clooney. Desværre er filmen frustrerende fordi der er så mange løse ender og så mange ubesvarede spørgsmål. Og for en film der gerne vil være en blanding af The Revenant og Gravity er der alt for lidt action. Ærgerligt, for filmen er en god ide!

Es lenta, se esfuerzan en esconder lo que todo mundo quiere saber sin sentido. No se decide entre ser una película de catástrofe, de supervivencia o del espacio. No pierdan su tiempo.

Some fundamental flaws in the story (e.g walking through icy cold conditions for days without hypothermia). Good acting though

The Midnight Sky lacks the dramatic heft to match its narrative scale, but its flaws are often balanced by thoughtful themes and a poignant performance from director-star George Clooney.
