The lunar sequence was shot on 70mm IMAX cameras and would have expanded aspect ratio during select sequences exclusively in IMAX theaters before Universal decided not to make any 70mm IMAX prints for distribution. See more »
During the LTV simulation, the "Lunar Module" is seen plummeting straight to the ground while exploding in mid-air but with Neil ejecting himself just in time. Although Neil did eject himself before the explosion, the LTV explosion was a little different. In the footage from 1968, unlike the movie, the LTV is seen coming to the ground. Then, it starts to climb up and almost reach 90 degrees before exploding. See more »
Bad soundtrack, shaky handheld camera, no drama or suspense
I was hoping for a movie similar to Apollo-13 but First Man isn't even close. I just saw it at the Imax and was very disappointed. First Man isn't even about the science involved with putting a man on the moon but rather about the discontentment and difficulties between Armstrong and his wife. There is very little drama or suspense throughout the entire movie. The movie has zero humor and is basicly very dark portrayal of Armstrong. The camera is shaky throughout and always on extreme closeup shots. The worst thing was that the soundtrack was terrible which to me and makes the difference between a good or mediocre movie. First Man could easily have been a made for TV movie in my humble opinion.
