The Midnight Sky | Ratings & Reviews

"Deserves the biggest and best screen you can find – and as much of your attention as you can spare..."

Radio New ZealandRadio New Zealand

"Just proves that a movie that reaches for the stars can still come up empty-handed."


"Clooney guides the performances competently, but the story drifts pointlessly into space."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The story may have links with today's reality, but it never feels real."


"It looks good. It sounds great. It’s as hollow as can be."

"No ray guns, no tentacular beasties, just gravitas in a film that goes boldly about its business but never quite lands."

Total FilmTotal Film

"The Midnight Sky fails to even get the conversation going."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"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."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"In Clooney’s capable directing hands, the film’s emotional core and human touch are never a waste of space."

USA TodayUSA Today

"Never loses grasp of the chilly atmosphere that inspires every moment; if only it there was something fresh about that."


"Gradually, Midnight Sky becomes a nailbiter—not over the fate of the Earth or the astronauts so much as whether its two storylines will coalesce into something more meaningful."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"Often feels less like its own distinct narrative than a sort of greatest-hits amalgam of movies like The Martian, Gravity, Interstellar, Ad Astra, and all the others that came before."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"Clooney delivers a thoughtful reflection on the toll of environmental devastation."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"There's heart and decency here, as well as a couple of set-pieces that pay their way."
