The thing about this movie is that it made me feel something I am unable to put into words. I consider that among the highest compliments I can give a film. It lands in a similar way to Interstellar or Arrival. It's not clever or surprising like those movies, but its authenticity and its striking tenderness had me hooked and crying the whole way through.

First off, from a technical perspective, this is a masterpiece. Everything that is shot in a ship looks phenomenal. The moon landing itself is breathtaking. See this in IMAX if possible. That being said, everything outside a ship is just ok. The acting is good overall but I’m not sure if it Oscar worthy. Claire Foy really gives the best performance. It feels a little too long. They used shaky cam a little too much. It makes sense on the ship scenes but it felt overused on the ground drama. It might be my least favorite Chazelle movie but this is still a great movie.

I ended up enjoying this way more than I though I would have. After "Whiplash" and "La La Land", two great music themed movies, I confess I had my doubts if Damien Chazelle could do a simple drama biopic but, he clearly did. Technically speaking, the "First Man" is outstanding. The sound syncs masterfully with the beautiful images we get through the whole movie. Great soundtrack and an amazing use of aspect ratio, making it very immersive. Also, Ryan Gosling proves, once again, how captivating he is. A really mature actor that's pretty much filling his career with great and memorable interpretations. It could have had more deep dialogs and exploration of characters, specially Claire Foy's character, but, I ended up leaving the movie theater pleased. It's a very straightforward story done it right.

this is one of the most anticipated movies of the year and after watching it i feel sorry for the people who were so excited about it the movie in my eyes was nothing but slow and bordom it even didn't show him putting the American flag on Earth it's probably one of the worst paced movie of the year I can't believe how awful this was I really don't recommend it to anyone else I had a hard time staying awake myself so if you have insomnia and need to sleep I guess go see it but otherwise stay away from. it

Every time that someone's on a spacecraft, I was into _First Man_. It might genuinely be the first time I didn't hate scenes shot with continual use of shaky cam, which is noteworthy. But by and large _First Man_ was not for me, biopics often aren't, and _First Man_ is absolutely a biopic. It's not More

A really encouraging film for a historic event. The music and silence are playing so well with each other. I am glad that the directors and actors did not waste a wonderful story. Though I always think the leading actor's appearance is significantly different from origin Neil, it does not affect the More

Damien Chazelle has already proven himself to be one of the freshest new directors of the decade so far. Even after delivering the hard-hitting Whiplash and the emotionally-wrecking and whimsical La La Land, he still knows how to surprise fans of his work, returning to the silver screen with grac More
