    It falls on the velvety-voiced Strong himself, much like his character, to salvage the mission and plow through the overly philosophical dialogue.
    June 03, 2016

    It remains cool, competent, engaging within a narrow realm ... but its unknown realm never explodes into anything remarkable.

    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.

    In its own compact, budget-conscious way, it's quite a stirring if low-key journey.

    New York Post

    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.

    Credit Rosenberg for tackling the big ideas. If he bit off a little more than he can chew, so be it.

    When shooting for otherworldly transcendence, solid rather than spectacular is not enough.

    While the concept yields some moderate claustrophobic tension, it doesn't offer an outlet for the protagonist to provide an emotional hook.

    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.

    Mark Strong's work in 'Approaching the Unknown' deserves high praise. He shows the ability to carry an entire movie almost alone!
    June 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 Covered

    Approaching The Unknown is a dull blend of Europa Report and The Martian, despite Mark Strong's best efforts.
