'One of the deeply admirable things about this film, in addition to the beauty of its imagery, its sprightly rhythm and its witty soundtrack, is that the science isn’t too dumbed down.' ★★★★ Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

'Reynolds’ film conveys a legitimate, stirring sense of awe about mankind’s innate desire for adventure, discovery and communion with all that surrounds it.' Nick Schager, Variety
