First Man has been dogged with controversy, with some saying it's unpatriotic. But rest assured, the movie shows America at its best. And the return pairing of Ryan Gosling and Damien Chazelle have produced an real Oscar contender.

No American flags, not paying to see a foreign director made movie about the American Apollo 11 landing.

As a Navy veteran that honorably served I thought that the American Flag controversy was ridiculous. The movie is about Neil Armstrong the man and the space race just happens to be the backdrop. Honestly most people who fuss about the flag never served in the armed forces and don't understand that the flag is nothing anyone died for. The constitution and the people of this country is what we defend. Not our symbols. I enjoyed watching this movie and I think it was well done.

PARTICIPATE IN THIS APOLLO-RESEARCH-CHALLENGE, if you want to find out for yourself what Apollos really were: Open each search in a new tab: GOOGLE: (“Saturn V Rocket Launch Speed and Height“) GOOGLE: ("Flyers are REQUIRED to insure a safe flight profile for their rockets.") GOOGLE: ("GoFast Part of CSXT Family") Now: If viewers first go through GOOGLE: (“Solving-Spacex-Enigma”) and its links, with patience, they can become rocket-literate, especially by understanding that even the lightest toy-rockets need a TWR>6 to vertically lift off their launch pads, for at least 100 meters. TWR==(Thrust-Weight-Ratio), which for Apollos was only 1.25, like TWR of a simple Helium-Balloon! Apollos ascended as slow as Helium-Balloons with a constant speed of 9 meters/second, and WITHOUT ACCELERATION! On the contrary, rockets need to launch with at least 5-G acceleration, or they stall and fall! TWR>6 (==6 G) is a rocket’s minimum necessary thrust-weight-ratio, because 1G-thrust-force-equivalent (from the total 6G) barely neutralizes the 1-G-(Gravity-Pull), keeping the rocket buoyant in air, like a floating balloon, while the other 5-G is the minimum necessary force to push the rocket straight up, with acceleration, without which a rocket stalls, tips over, and falls! In contrast to the above-cited Apollo-Launch-Data, all Apollo-launch-films show that they ascend at a constant balloon speed of around 9 meters/second, but without acceleration, while clearing tower, which is why all their horizontal-view launch-films are cut immediately upon Apollos clearing tower, so that viewers can NOT see how many launch-tower-lengths they cover as they ascend, in how many seconds. For further deceptions, camera is quickly switched to Apollos’ view from underneath, because Apollos’ close distance to the ground could NOT be visible from below them! The record-breaking GoFast-rocket, had a TWR==125, and ascended 73 miles, which you can see by copy-pasting in DE-vid: (GoFast rocket thrust). TWR=125 is 100 times that of an Apollo-TWR==1.25 Now, by performing the equivalency calculations below, you can see that for an Apollo (3,000 tons) to have reached the initial 73 miles, of its claimed launch altitude, it would have required a thrust-force equivalent to 1,000,000 times (ONE MILLION TIMES) of its weight (contrary to Apollo’s claimed-thrust of 1.25 times of its weight); Thus an Apollo would have required 3,000,000,000 (3-billion-tons) of Thrust-Force to make just the initial 73 miles of its claimed mythical flight! GoFast-Rocket, 2018 record-holder, with 73-miles-high-record-vertical-launch: delivering 44,000 kgf (force) on a 350 kg (weight), high-tech-rocket, which was much more efficient in deploying every gram of thrust-force, than all rockets of 10-50 years ago: 44,000 kgf/350 kg==125==TWR, as opposed to Apollo-TWR==1.25==BALLOON-TWR. NOW: SHOCKER-APOLLO-TWR-EQUIVALENCY-MATH: The actual TWR a GoFast-comparable-Apollo would have needed, to vertically ascend the first 73 miles of its claimed flight-path-to-the-Moon, is the equivalent of: ((3,000,000 (kg-Apollo-Weight) X 125)) / 350 kg ==1,071,428≈≈1,000,000≈≈Apollo-TWR-DEMAND! CONCLUSION: Apollos were unmanned-vertical-airships (BALLOONS), going NOWHERE! Second proof: DE-vid: (Amateur rocket reaches 121,000 ft) Applying similar method, to this Qu8K-Real-Rocket, I calculate the Apollo-TWR-Demand-Equivalency: Qu8K-rocket-weight=320 lbs; its Thrust=4,000 lbs; (TWR==4,000/320=12.5); Apogee: 121,000ft==23 miles altitude; Apollo-Claimed-Weight==6,500,000 lbs; Now, shocker-equivalency-math: ((6,500,000 (lbs-Apollo-Weight) X 12.5)) / 320 lbs== 254,000==Apollo-TWR-Demand to reach the first 23 miles of its mythical flight-path! Meaning: Apollo needed at least a thrust-force equivalent to 254,000 times of its weight, in order to fly up its first 23 miles! With its claimed-thrust-force of 1.25 times of its weight, Apollo could NOT lift off the ground, NOT one inch! CONCLUSION: Apollos were Unmanned-Vertical-Airships (BALLOONS), slightly pushed up with fireworks propulsion!

+Kareem Salessi You somehow failed to notice that that 50 seconds is across two separate camera shots (clearly labelled as "Camera 1" and "Camera 2") - the actual ascent from launch until crossing the power wires is 26 seconds. I replied in that thread pointing out some further errors, but I must confess to some glee at being upbraided for not paying attention by someone who has failed to notice that it launched twice.

Lappan Sommer
Lappan Sommer Vor 5 Monate
+Kareem Salessi If you understand that that the acceleration increases with mass loss then why do you assume that the initial acceleration determines total performance? The 2014 GoFast launch reported 23g at launch, burn time 13s to altitude 15km and top speed 5500km/h, after which it coasted ballistically to 116km altitude. Classic sounding rocket: punch through atmosphere hard and fast, soar high, drop. Not at all like an orbital profile, let alone a manned one. Also your figures look wrong: reported time by SpaceX to 800m altitude for Falcon-9 is 20 seconds (as seen on any launch video), time to 60m (measured against service mast) 8 seconds. What's your source for 50 seconds?
Kareem Salessi
Kareem Salessi Vor 5 Monate
+Lappan Sommer I replied to you under another channel. You don't have a clue what acceleration is! Above is comparing like with like. The above professional rockets also start losing weight after launch. Take any other actual-rocket's performance & put its numbers in the above equivalency-equation to understand that Apollos, SpaceX, etc. are NOT rockets. For instance put the numbers for this one which only goes up half-mile in DE-vid: (World Record Model Rocket Launch - 3/4 Scale Mercury Redstone) Click on SORT-COMMENTS BY NEWEST to see the rocket's numbers in comments, then put them in above equation (for an Apollo) to see that Apollo would have needed the equivalent force of hundreds of times of its own weight, just to go up half-a-mile, which the above model rocket did in just 4 seconds, while Apollo claimed ascending 25 meters in 4 second, and the latest SpaceX took 50 seconds to climb an equal half-mile, thus neither Apollos, nor SpaceX could be rockets!

The astronauts seemed to go through the entire picture in the grip of some sort of despondency. Constantly staring off camera trying to reign in their depression, Walking to their spacecraft as if to their own funeral. Apparently even walking to a Saturn 5 doesn't cause the slightest nervous smile. Not even landing on the moon with seconds of fuel left is cause for a smile. The technology is portrayed as ill suited to the task by having all of the cockpit doors sound like something from Das Boot, close ups of large rivets etc. This is a movie about how the Apollo missions were not about a bunch of highly competent and daring men doing great things but instead a bunch of crazy people trapped in a nightmare of their own making who inexplicably lucked out despite their inability to express their emotions. There is a difference between seriousness and depression but this seems lost by the makers of this movie.

Hollywood quietly re-inserted the American flag into the moon landing AFTER the huge (now quietly shuffled aside) controversy. The moon landing by the AMERICANS is an AMERICAN achievement. The AMERICAN flag planting on the moon represents the accomplishment by AMERICANS, and the AMERICAN taxpayers and the brilliant minds at NASA.

Wrong. As an American, which obviously you are not, THE crowning achievement of the space race was the flag planting on the moon. I saw adults SOB when it happened live. Neil knew it. His mission was to do it. He did it spectacularly. The director left it out ON PURPOSE (his words, not mine). It wasnt a tweet that stopped the majority of real Americans from watching it. You think that then you wont learn from your mistakes.

Something youre obviously not familiar with.

Another point with understated acting. When the Armstrong’s arrive in Houston and Pat White asks Janet (pregnant with Mark) “is that your first?” There’s a moment, pang of regret when I thought she would say it’s my third, opening the door to Karen’s story. She swerved this and says “we already have a son”. It’s those little moments. And while I loved watching it on imax I’m looking forward to seeing those little moments again on the small screen

Oscar gold? I walked out of it. Terrible movie. Armstrong was not frowning all the time because he was depressed--he was stoic because he had exceptional skill at what he did and nothing to prove. I love the exposition in the movie: "Neil plays the piano." Why not just show him playing the piano instead of telling us he plays? From La La Land, it is obvious that Ryan Gosling can play. Watch any interview of Neil Armstrong (or any of the astronauts from the 60's) and you will see confidence, skill and love of country. You will not see a sad, depressed man who only joined the space program because his daughter died. I know this movie was not meant to be a documentary but this is a pure example where life is way more interesting than art. Watch "In the Shadow of the Moon" and read the exceptional "Carrying the Fire" by Michael Collins (the command pilot from Apollo 11.) By the way, the real Ed White was a superb athlete who almost made it to the Olympics, not a pudgy confidant as depicted in this film. That being said--I loved the scene in the Gemini 8.

The planting of the flag of the United States on the moon was one of the most notable moments of the entire space program. That simple act told the world that America had beat the Soviet Union in the space race. No, the world did not beat the Soviets. AMERICA did. Mankind did not beat the Soviets. AMERICA did. And the world cheered. To exclude that aspect of the mission in the movie, and to usurp the title of Neil Armstrong's biography for this movie on top of that, is an absolute disgrace. Since they've used that title, there can't be another movie with that title that gives proper homage to the spirit of America that put those men on the moon. What they've done is tantamount to somebody taking a priceless Rembrandt original painting and using it as a placemat at Taco Bell.

It would have been kind of weird to show the planting of the flag itself. I thought it was nonsense not to have it in the movie when I first heard it. Watching it, it made sense. The movie is more about Neil himself and his grief. When he is on the moon he finally finds peace with his grief and problems and they decide to only show that very short. This movie is more about Neil and his life than the mission itself.

Hollywood decided that showing planting the flag wasn't important but making up a fictional scene of Neil dropping his daughter's bracelet into Little West crater was? Opie (Ron Howard) did the same thing in Apollo 13 with his made up argument between Fred Haise and Jack Swigert. Opie said he did it for dramatic effect. Really? The fact that the whole side of the Service Module had just been blown out, your venting your oxygen into space, and you don't have enough power for the duration of the mission is not enough drama? Really? Beating the Russians to the moon and demonstrating that capitalism is a better form of government than communism WAS the mission. But the socialist run education system of the US no longer teaches actual history any more otherwise you would know this.

The perspective of this movie is from the point of view of "the first man" Neil Armstrong based on a book written by an author who really got to know the man. It underscored the danger, the resolve, the hyper analytic mind needed and the burden of emotion that came with being an astronaut, father and husband. It also highlighted the words of Neil Armstrong "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind". The movie did the above, very well. If you wish to experience that, you will enjoy the movie.

This controversy wouldnt have happened if the makers of the movie didnt publically declare that there wont be a flag planting scene, long before the movie was even released. If they never made that comment, then no one would have noticed, because there were actual american flags in the movie

I watched the movie, and it was patriotic AF. So many flags were shown. This movie is all about the USA. There's a scene it literary spelled out "United State" word by word for you. The only thing it didn't show is the "physical act of planting the flag", it did show the flag prominently on the moon. Whoever believes in this no flag bs, for sure never saw the movie but instead followed garbage news headlight to stir up controversy, like sheep. The PR department for this movie is the worst when they didn't explained it cleary

The director did his best not to in any way make this an American patriotic movie.
Even Ryan Gremlins do not look alike Louis Amstrong he convinced me he is a Replicant from the year 2049. He went to the moon with 2 more Blade Runner in order to capture the replicants Off World.

I would have paid a lot to see this movie in NYC. The fact that they took out the landmark historical fact of planting the American flag on the moon makes this former 'Liberal' makes me more pro-Trump and MAGA! And why is the American hero portrayed by a Canadian? And his American hero wife portrayed by an Englishwoman? Hollywood is made up of so many fakes, I shall switch to foreign films. At least they are real. I shall wait for 'First Man' to be downloaded by someone for free. Liberal Hollywood: I don't need you.

What was more tragic is that in the movie they don’t show or even mention Armstrong’s time in the Korean War. Nor how as a young teenager he took up odd jobs to pay for his flying lessons. These are experiences that shape a person’s character a great deal.

Director Krennic Sometimes conventional biopics just work better for certain stories, this was one of them. The shaping of a man’s character throughout his life to have the inner strength to take on a mission of this magnitude. If the idea is to make it unconventional then the movie needs to rely heavily on other elements. For example, the Fassbenser movie about Steve Jobs was superb and better than the other “more conventional” one because of its rich dialogue. What other element did this movie rely on? The special effects were just OK so not that. The dialogue was not rich at all. No real emotional attachment was developed for any of the characters to feel sad when they died. This is why they should’ve just focused on his life and the triumph of the human spirit. To each their own though

+Alan Edher No, that's what a conventional biopic would do, and they mostly fall flat for that reason. Bizarre you would ask for more 'outstanding highlights of his life' and go on to ostensibly say they should have cut most of his wife/family. That 'petty domestic stuff' is what shaped this story, and rightfully so.

a lot more people will be inspired to learn about Neil now. The film covers 1960-9. That's enough of an undertaking. The book is more comprehensive as is almost always the case- hence the art of the screenplay. What you want is more of an HBO mini-series; just as Private Ryan inspired translation of Band of Brothers. First Man is a hands down masterpiece and an important film in a time of hand wringing victimization doom gloom apathy and laziness.

Um no its not. This movie is nothing but wild conjecture at its core. No one knows if Neil took anything to the Moon. Know one knows what was going on in his head as he never told anyone. This is all admitted. Why on Earth would I subject myself to wild fantasy in this manner? When it comes to real heroes, only real facts should be put to screen. Tarnishing his legend for what ifs and emotion is a bunch of bs in my opinion. Aside from that, its Ryan Gosling. I would rather bleach my cornea.

What the hell do Canadians know about American patriotism? This sissy looking Canadian *soy boy* is going to tell us Americans that this movie was patriotic enough. *No it was not.* It could have been. The liberal Canadian director of the liberal "La La Land" did his best to make this was no way near an American patriotic movie. He made sure of it. *He did his best to appeal to the globalist market.* He also did his best to show a depressing non-supporting feminist wife. Yea, Hollywood made sure the wife came off as a feminist. You know, if they had to show supportive house wives then they had to put some feminist crap in it. Everytime she was in the scenes, the movie turned boring and too slow. *The Presentation of our flag on the moon was practically non existent.* One far away wide shot showing, if you can see it, the flag. My brother said coming out of the theater, they didn't show the flag on the moon, I said yes they did but you have to be looking hard to see it. This movie could have made much more money if they put some patriotism in it, because we would have spread the word. But now we tell the truth, good recreations, however the movie for was the globalist market. Many American said, *"No flag - no Ticket"*.

The film was not about the US. It was about what niel Armstrong went through, the placement of the flag had little to do with him.

There are several comments saying the earth is flat. So where is the proof of that? and why are people not falling off the edge? and if they are why is that being reported? and if it is reported why are people not told to keep away from the edge or you might fall off the planet and why are not major motion picture companies making movies about the flat earth and the tremendous loss when people get to close to the edge and when are there not major explorations of the flat earth and how to get to the other side. Do you see how silly this is...that is what happens when you get public education you stop thinking for yourself and common sense goes out the window...or maybe it just falls off the edge of the flat earth.
