It was a nice short movie, but one likely to be swiftly forgotten. Would recommend tho! Movies don't have to be something insanely weird or revolutionary.

There's hardly any story to be told in this movie: a couple goes up in an air balloon, they come down, they go up again. And then there's too many flashbacks preventing the (lack of) story to move forward. The movie does occasionally pamper us with some breathtaking scenery but, while up there, it often feels like they were trying to do something similar to _Gravity_, but the visual and emotional impact was not the same. All in all, there was too much romantic innuendo and too little adventurous soul in this one. [spoiler]Thankfully, they didn't fall into the "kissing each other when the trouble was finally over" cliché.[/spoiler] A mildly entertaining but easily forgettable movie.

The are some cool shots and imagery. The plot has too many flashbacks but some intense moments.

Always love a film that stars Eddie Redmayne but the fact he’s reunited with Felicity Jones is a plus. The plot at first glance doesn’t sound like it’ll have much about it but I surprisingly really enjoyed the film as a whole. Some of the scenery from the balloon ascent was amazing and a little bit of humour made its way into the script too. Very enjoyable :relaxed:

The Aeronauts is a100-minute long illustration of the rule in Ebert's Little Movie Glossary that teaches us, "no good movie has ever featured a hot-air balloon," though it takes it less than 10 minutes to show why — right about the point where a poor, defenseless dog is parachuted from a hot-air b More

There's little groundbreaking about 'The Aeronauts', but that isn't to diminish what an excellent and genuinely thrilling experience it is. At its best, it's 'Gravity' in a hot air balloon, a nail-biting and awe-inspiring adventure of human beings pitted against the ferocity of the elements. Tom Har More

The Aeronauts ascends through the weathering clouds to deliver a beautifully panoramic adventure. The sky is our limit. Our ambitious endeavours, boundless by the mysterious stars that plague the night. Eloquent diamonds dancing on a twinkled canvas. The infallible lust for discovery, eternally moti More

Well, I like Jones and I like Redmayne so I had high hopes for this, plus it was based on true events... and I understood that it was going to be exaggerated for dramatic effect, but I didn't think it was going to be a total rewrite of history.

I don't mind taking artistic licenses when making mo More
