This is a well constructed biopic. The narrative style is very evocative and non-linear, making a very compelling story. The portrayal of the pilots and engineers align to those in real life.
It also communicates the difficulties, technical challenges and personal rivalries of the space programmes. With space travel being part of life for so many years, it is easy to forget how little anyone knew about the affects of space on people. Even now there is much to learn.
The film also captures the competition between the Soviet Union and the United States, and how achievements in space were such a source of national pride.
The scenes are well framed and shot, the direction is tight and the acting is well done. There are a few cheesy moments, which provided comic relief.
Overall, this is an intelligent film about an engaging person, and should be of interest to anyone interested in the space race or space travel today.
