What to Know

Critics Consensus

Asteroid City is unlikely to win Wes Anderson many new converts, but those who respond to his signature style will find this a return to immaculately arranged form.

Asteroid City | Rotten Tomatoes (1) David Stratton The Australian The film is, for the most part, a delight. I would never miss a Wes Anderson movie, and I encourage anyone looking for something offbeat and original to go and see Asteroid City. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 14, 2023 Full Review Asteroid City | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald As usual, I marvelled at the richly furnished nature of Anderson’s imagination, but I couldn’t help looking back on earlier, simpler times in his career. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 10, 2023 Full Review Asteroid City | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Adam Kempenaar Filmspotting For all of [ASTEROID CITY'S] artists – including Anderson, of course – the only way to deal with the chaos and uncertainty is to "just keep telling the story." Rated: 4.5/5 Jun 28, 2023 Full Review Asteroid City | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Jaylan Salah InSession Film Asteroid City is a poetic, bright-colored mess, but it’s a mess that attracts people like me, and that’s sufficient. Apr 17, 2024 Full Review Asteroid City | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Luke Goodsell ABC News (Australia) In a career that now spans nearly 30 years, Anderson's latest film – a carousel of astronomers, aliens and singing cowboys; of mid-century madness, deadpan soul and signature melancholy – might just be one of his finest. Apr 10, 2024 Full Review Asteroid City | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Grant Watson Fiction Machine There is romance here. There is joy. There is a deep, terrified uncertainty. Rated: 7/10 Mar 18, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

Luciano Asteroid City was one of the more “obscure” Wes Anderson films I have ever seen. While the actors, filmography, and scenery is all great, I think the movie is bland in story and composition. The storyline isn’t great and for me, doesn’t really match much with the story I was expecting. Personally, I give this film a 4/10. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/27/23 Full Review C very unusual. a lot of fun Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/31/23 Full Review Drake It's always a treat to get to spend a couple hours in consuming like candy yet another Wes Anderson creation. The bold color palette, the sets and miniatures (even stop-motion), all shot in thoughtful framing, the ensemble cast of familiar faces putting on idiosyncratic performances befitting the deadpan lines, escapist tales in which all sorts of entertainment can happen—in which people fall in love with each other left and right!—but without any horrifying stakes. This is Hollywood at its best—the self-conscious drama, whether Oscar-baiting or attempting to be merely serious enough to enter the canon, is better for novels or art films, although Hollywood is affiliated with several auteurs who provide this other side of the Janus greatly enough too.This time, we're at a crossroads of Technicolor Westerns & Space Age optimism, ultra Americana, still delicious to look at and listen to and yet in its contemporary writing so much more engaging than any of those '50s movies were—although, inevitably, this screenplay gets away from itself a bit in the denouement. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review Caleb D Wes Anderson continues to build on and improve his methods and style. Beautiful film. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review George True Wes Anderson film with a star packed cast Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review Tiana Marie L Love his work, but this was really great!
