  • I love space movies BUT THIS ONE SUCKED!

    By goteebrother
    I grew up in Clear Lake, TX near NASA. My neighbor’s dad worked for NASA. I wanted to be an astronaut as a kid as did so many other kids I knew at school. I love space movies like Space Camp, Right Stuff, Apollo 13 and Gravity but this one just sucked. A better option would be to go and watch Discovery Channel’s “When We Left Earth.” This one just doesn’t work for me and I wanted to like it.
  • Inaccurate portrayal, bad cinematography

    By CatGotYourTongue
    This should be a celebration of American pride and accomplishment, why was this element completely removed? Also, why the shakey-cam? Garbage message and cinematography
  • Uhhhhh

    By shnauzer123
    Wait, last I checked, Neil Armstrong was an American. Where is the patriotism?!?! This is tantamount to infinity war not having captain America’s “American-liness” because it wouldn’t sell well in foreign countries. What a pathetic, leftist move. Are we going to say George Washington was liberating America for the natives too, and that it had nothing to do with the colonists? Are we gonna make a movie about how he fell in love with a Native American and liberated America to prove his love? Please. If I’m forced to be politically correct, Hollywood’s gotta be historically correct, know what I’m sayin? Don’t bother watching book was better anyway, as usual. Agriato!!!
  • These Reviews Are A Joke

    By MattyBuh
    Shame on you Damien Chazelle for making the movie the way you wanted to direct it. That’s the summation of almost half of the reviews. Armstrong’s own family has come out in defense of the movie and said the anti-American criticism is unwarranted. Rating this one star because there’s no flag planting scene is absurd
  • Mediocre

    Not really a good movie, boring.
  • Good Movie

    By MrChevyII
    Only reason I’m giving it 5 stars and not 4 is because you crybaby drama making idiots complain about the flag scene not being there, you see the flag.... don’t deny it you pansies. Could some things have been better? Sure. But does everything have to be a baby boomer gripe? Grow up and enjoy a movie, quit worrying about stupid crap. The movie is through Neil’s eyes not anyone else’s.
  • Painfully boring

    By Vegas_Barry
    I don’t care about the lack of a flag on the moon, although the lack of one in the final landscape scene is just stupid. What I do care about is the 2+ hours I will never get back. This was one of the slowest, most boring movies I have seen in a long time. Completely hollow, unlikable characters. Save your money.
  • Overzealous Patriots Artificially Lowering Rating

    By caverks
    It amazes me how many comments on here rate the movie one star because the flag planting scene is absent. There are tons of American flags and patriotism written over this film; you even get a shot of the American flag on the moon - but that’s besides the point. This isn’t a story about America’s accomplishment. It’s a story about Neil Armstrong and his personal struggles with being an astronaut. The countless friends and colleagues he lost. The struggling relationship with his wife. The constant heartbreak where the Soviet Union was one step ahead in the Space Race until the very end - America almost never got to be “first”. That is, until Armstrong became the First Man. Great film showcasing a perspective that is often lost in our history textbooks.
  • Boring

    By IMAZ1123
    Wait for it on Netflix, dry, camera angles are bad and shaky. Boring movie about a great man. Shame on the director and no American flag. This movie is nothing like Apollo 13 or The Right Stuff...
  • Thanks
