A Biopic on the life of the legendary American Astronaut Neil Armstrong from 1961-1969, on his journey to becoming the first human to walk the moon. Exploring the sacrifices and costs on the Nation and Neil himself, during one of the most dangerous missions in the history of space travel.
Starring Ryan Gosling.
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed to make him very straight and narrow, almost bordering on clinical. It makes sense too though. (Guess you'll have to watch the film to figure that one out, sorry.)
Loved seeing our local boy Ryan Gosling as Neil. He wouldn't have been my choice if I was casting the role, but after seeing him in this, he was a great choice!
A really great film, that most will enjoy.
