Critic Reviews of "Approaching the Unknown"New York Daily NewsJune 03, 2016
It falls on the velvety-voiced Strong himself, much like his character, to salvage the mission and plow through the overly philosophical dialogue.RogerEbert.comJune 03, 2016
It remains cool, competent, engaging within a narrow realm ... but its unknown realm never explodes into anything remarkable.New York TimesJune 02, 2016
If "Approaching the Unknown" isn't entirely satisfying, Mr. Strong reaches high with his portrayal of the unraveling of a man who believes survival is a matter of engineering.Los Angeles TimesJune 02, 2016
In its own compact, budget-conscious way, it's quite a stirring if low-key journey.New York PostJune 02, 2016
Claustrophobic space films certainly don't have to be funny, but writer/director Mark Elijah Rosenberg fails to convey any real psychological chills either with this portrait of an obsessive adventurer banging away at his imperfect machine.Arizona RepublicJune 02, 2016
Credit Rosenberg for tackling the big ideas. If he bit off a little more than he can chew, so be it.Under the RadarJune 29, 2016
When shooting for otherworldly transcendence, solid rather than spectacular is not enough.Cinemalogue.comJune 17, 2016
While the concept yields some moderate claustrophobic tension, it doesn't offer an outlet for the protagonist to provide an emotional hook.Flick FilosopherJune 07, 2016
I wish I could figure out what this would-be trippy space odyssey wants to say. I was hoping for sci-fi philosophy. I got nothing but lifeless nonsense.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsJune 05, 2016
Mark Strong's work in 'Approaching the Unknown' deserves high praise. He shows the ability to carry an entire movie almost alone!Examiner.comJune 04, 2016
There's value in watching a man come face-to-face with the triviality of his own existence, and see it as an opportunity for greater exploration.We Got This CoveredJune 04, 2016
Approaching The Unknown is a dull blend of Europa Report and The Martian, despite Mark Strong's best efforts.
