Goofs

The movie depicts lunar terrain as incredibly rugged with sheer crater walls and cliffs. In one scene Armstrong stands on the brink of a crater that looks like a deep, dark, well. In fact slopes on the Moon are very gentle, almost never greater than 35 degrees, due lack of wind and water erosive processes. Actual lunar terrain has a smooth appearance thanks to sandblasting by micro-meteoroids for billions of years. See more »

A cinematic masterpiece.
3 October 2018 | by ShellwonderfulSee all my reviews

Gosling and Foy are at the top of their game in this one. Damien Chazelle managed to make a perfect moon landing movie that shows both the positives and negatives of the NASA program. Don't go into this thinking it's a huge patriotic, space adventure. What we get is a masterful character study and a story about the emotional and familial effects being an astronaut can have on somebody. The space and launch sequences are absolutely breath taking as well.

Do not let the runtime scare you. Every minutes counts and it's all worth it.
