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.

Can't believe how underrated this movie is. It breaks my heart that this movie is going unnoticed. Despite Amelia Wren being a fictional character (replacing Coxwell that was really the balloonist at the time), based in Sophie Blanchard, the first woman to work as a professional balloonist who became a celebrated aeronaut following her husband's death, the rest of the movie is pretty accurate, in fact, the balloon flight depicted in The Aeronauts is based on the 5 September 1862 flight of British aeronauts James Glaisher and Henry Coxwell whose coal gas-filled balloon broke the world flight altitude record. To add, the music, the visual effects, the breathtaking scenery and the production are incredible. Not no mention the acting of the two main characters.

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

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

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
