Neil Armstrong in this movie is a real human bean and a real hero.

A pretty comprehensive review.... just my 2 cents, just saw the movie, in a local theatre, on it's way out, in the smallest theatre they have, but it was packed, I was shocked...so anyway, it's a 'different' film alright... maybe the director is 'trying' to be another 'Kubrick' just using visuals and virtually no dialogue... I will admit, most of the 'test flight' scenes seemed to be where Armstrong had some kind of problem....and made him seem like a error prone pilot.... (the ole 'moon hoaxers' probably like that).... but I think it was trying to show, that whatever happened to him, he could pull it out-of-the-fire with a cool head, and quick thinking. And I also think that's why he got the 1st actual try for the landing, (even though the standard NASA line is that they were all in the flight rotation) He and Buzz (being the Dr. Orbital Engineer)... would give the best chance to be successful... the 1st time. Can't say I liked the ending...but it was about Armstrong, not the flag, not the parade.... not the 'glory'....but a 'personal' glory.

It's now a month since I saw the movie on the day it came out, on IMAX as well. I have to give some credit to the way this movie was analyzed by Ars Technica. After thinking about the movie and watching and re-watching this analysis, I have to give due credit to this movie review. I'm going see this movie again after it is release from the movie theaters. Maybe I'll have learned something after watching it the first time. I usually do.

I just watched this. I was hoping for something similar to Apollo 13, but apart from the attention to set details which was fairly accurate, the rest of this movie construct was a big let down.The camera work reminded me of the overdone 'Blair Witch Project' method. When the openning scene came on showing the interior of the X-15's cockpit, I thought I was watching a cheap Russion knock-off copy taken by some tweaker in a movie theater with a cell phone. It might have actually looked like that in real life, but shaking the camera as well?The story line and script was also a bit 'wooden' and sadly predictable. Angry Buzz Aldrin and about 4 other astronauts who had a surname in this film. If you're not a space nut, you'd have no idea who all the other characters are. Yes, we all know Armstrongs history and wanted to see him living through it, not robotically chopping from scene to scene. If the real 'First Man' had been as mentally damaged as this portrayal made him out to be, he's never have made the cut.

One thing that annoys me about the movie is they pronounce Gemini as GeminEE instead of GeminEYE I’ve heard they pronounce it it both ways but I’ve always pronounced it as GeminEYE And it took some getting used to Regardless I think the movie was amazing and can’t wait till it comes out on iTunes

Emotionless two dimensional portrayals. Can you imagine suiting up to go to the moon and not getting a little excited? The whole movie was like an extended funeral. Literally nothing for the astronauts to do other than stick handling on docking and landing. The rest of the time they sit silently staring off camera as if contemplating their imminent demise. Then the stupid squeaky Das Boot sounding doors to try and instil in us that the technology was poor, when in fact it was more than adequate to get to the Moon. Then the absurd amount of shaking in every flight sequence, even entering the upper atmosphere in the ultimate high wing load X-15 results in enough shaking to cause a brain bleed. This movie says a lot about us in the 21st century. Apparently space flight is an impossible and deadly endeavour that should be avoided at all costs. We want to believe that's why we don't do space travel any more, not because we have collectively failed to live up to the generation before us like soft sad meek generation that we are.

The American flag is shown several times in the film, including on the lunar surface. There's also a very touching scene where Armstrong's young son raises the American flag in front of his house on the morning of his father's first mission into space to show how proud he is of him, and it's very touching. Don't believe the right wing media's LIES.

Most of the NASA space program is a hoax. The Achilles Heel of the NASA hoax is the NASA spacesuit with ice sublimator cooling system because it could be scientifically verified on Earth today. NASA must publicly demonstrate before independent witnesses the operation of a NASA spacesuit with ice sublimator cooling system in a vacuum chamber on Earth duplicating environmental conditions of orbit. NASA refuses to verify and has always refused to verify its spacesuits with sublimators because they can't verify them because they've been committing fraud against the Citizens of the United States for more than 50 years. Plenty of NASA videos of spacesuits in swimming pools exist but there are none of spacesuits with sublimators in vacuum chambers although there is one video from 1966 of a NASA spacesuit without sublimator failing in a vacuum chamber causing a near fatality. If NASA regularly uses the spacesuits with sublimators on spacewalks from the ISS as they allege and regularly tests the spacesuits with sublimators in vacuum chambers at NASA's Johnson Space Center as they also allege then it should cost nothing extra and create no unacceptable inconvenience to allow a few witnesses to observe the next test. The NASA space program is a faith-based thing and that is totally unnecessary. Unless, of course, they have a scam to protect.

It's simple; stop making it difficult. Stop going off on tangents. NASA must scientifically verify its technical claims about spacesuits with sublimators on Earth. They refuse to do so." You are the only person going off on a tangent. You are a liar. Prove that anybody has demanded NASA allow them to witness a test of the sublimators. Show me proof of these regular test. And foremost, prove that NASA has denied anybody access to these test. You have been making this same tired claim since 2013, that I know of. Are you going to foot the bill for a private test? Every current generation EVA spacesuit, from the NASA EMU to the Russian Orlan, to the Chinese Fetian, uses ice sublimation as its way of removing waste heat. Is everybody lying just to deceive you? Why would they do this? What is the motivation for China AND Russia to go along with the US in some supposed hoax?

+Jesse P. Pollack stated "You have no way of proving it didn't happen." Dude, seriously, are you on drugs? Hansen said it didn't happen. Hansen also stated he asked Neil "point-blank" and Neil told him NO! I can claim that Martians landed on the far side of the moon yesterday. You have no way of knowing if that statement is true or false. You have no way of proving it didn't happen. Your argument, your logic, is that flawed and that silly. Also, Armstrong has never released any information about the contents of his PPK. He agreed to do so for publication in this book but was reported he was unable to find the manifest among his many papers. All he had to say about what he took with him to the Moon was: "In my PPK I had some Apollo 11 medallions, some jewelry for my wife and mother [simply the gold olive branch for each], and some things for other people. He is most clear about, and most proud of, the pieces of the historic Wright Flyer that he took to the moon. Under a special arrangement with the U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton, he took in his LM PPK a piece of wood from the Wright brothers' 1903 airplane's left propeller and a piece of muslin fabric (8x13 inches) from its upper left wing. Armstrong also took along his college fraternity pin from Purdue, which he later donated for display at Phi Delta Thera's headquarters in Oxford, Ohio. - "First Man" by James Hansen, 2005. So you claim Armstrongs PPK manifest is sealed at Purdue University . Hmmmmmmm? September 26, 2018 Personal papers from ‘First Man’ Neil Armstrong’s giant leap into history have landing spot at Purdue, his alma mater . Purdue University has a 364 page PDF "Finding Guide" for Neil Armstrong's papers. They do not have a PPK manifest in their possession. The only mention of the PPK has to do with PPK policy and not PPK contents. PPK is listed time on pages 14, 233, 254, and 262. In all cases it is mentioned as follows (The active files include the files on correspondence related to Apollo 11 lunar surface photography, astronaut policy information, such as policies on the Personal Preference Kit (PPK), policies on appearances, assignments, standards of conduct and other related policies to which the astronauts were held.) www.purdue.edu/newsroom/releases/2018/Q3/personal-papers-from-first-man-neil-armstrongs-giant-leap-into-history-have-landing-spot-at-purdue,-his-alma-mater.html So either you are misinformed, lying or Hansen lied in his book when he stated that Neil was unable to find the manifest. I don't like to call anybody a liar unless I can prove it, so I will give you the benefit of the doubt and go with misinformed. If anybody needs to "let it go" it's you.

You have no way of proving it didn't happen. Armstrong's PPK manifest is sealed at Purdue University and he never revealed it in its entirety during his lifetime. No one in his family ever said it didn't happen - they said they don't know if it did, or not. I've spoken with Rick Armstrong personally, and he says he has no way of knowing, but that if his father had done something like that, he would have kept it to himself. Let it go, dude.
Rick Jones
Rick Jones Vor Monat
Clay3613 stated "His family thought he took something to the Moon, the bracelet was need to connect the story." No, they did not. His family knew that he didn't take anything. The story was completely concocted by James Hansen author of the book "First Man". Here is what the screenwriter, Josh Singer, said about the bracelet scene. Also, there is a video where Mark Armstrong is asked about the bracelet scene. I have provided a link below to that interview. "When I went over to look at the crater, that was something that wasn't on the plan, but I didn't know the crater was going to be there. I thought seeing and photographing it was a worthwhile addition," Armstrong said in an interview with historian James (Jim) Hansen for his 2005 authorized biography, "First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong" (the book was the basis for the movie). Armstrong, like his crewmates, had the opportunity to fly mementos to the moon. Each of the astronauts had a Personal Preference Kit (PPK), a small pouch in which they packed medallions, stamped envelopes, mission patches, and other small souvenirs. Armstrong, Aldrin and Michael Collins (who stayed in lunar orbit) each flew a gold olive branch broach for their wives. Armstrong did not, however, fly anything for his sons. "In our household, in our upbringings, there really was never any discussion about things that were taken. It was just something that never came up," said Mark Armstrong. "It wasn't part of the engineering problem, and my interpretation would be that he was a lot more focused on the engineering problems than keepsakes." Armstrong and Aldrin did bring a small pouch of mementos to leave on the moon, including a small silicon disc etched with goodwill messages from world leaders, a couple of medallions to honor fallen Soviet cosmonauts, a mission patch for the ill-fated Apollo 1 crew and another of the gold olive branches. But that was treated almost like an afterthought, unceremoniously dropped onto the lunar surface and even kicked a bit at the very end of the moonwalk. Astronauts on later missions would leave a family photo on the moon and write a daughter's initials in the lunar soil, but did Armstrong, contrary to his other actions, leave something behind of Karen's? "If he did, he didn't tell us," said Mark. "It was a private thing, and I think that's the way the movie portrays it." "But he did go over to that crater," said Rick. "And we don't know what he did over there," said Mark with a laugh. So where did the idea come from to show the bracelet falling into the 13-foot-deep (4-meter) crater in "First Man"? "The bracelet is conjecture, but it is not my conjecture, it is Jim's conjecture based on all of his research," said screenwriter Josh Singer. "I talked to Neil about whether he took anything for his family and specifically for Karen to the lunar surface," said Hansen. "I talked to his wife Janet and I talked to his sister June about it, and there's no evidence that he did." "When I asked Neil point-blank whether he took anything for Karen, he did tell me that he did not," Hansen continued. "I never questioned the honesty of his answer, but Neil was such a private man, I think if there were things private to him, that this would be maybe the most private." Mark Armstrong is asked about the bracelet in this interview around 4:13 How accurate is 'First Man?' We asked Neil Armstrong's son de-vid.com/video/video-VBPBagk-ZCU.html Neil was terribly reluctant to authorize anybody to do an official biography of his story because he feared the story might get embellished or not give enough attention to the engineering and the thousands of engineers and scientist that made the moon landings possible. James Hansen pestered Neil for over 10 years before he agreed to allow him to tell his story. I think Neil would be pissed to know that Hansen did the exact thing he never wanted to have happened.

Fair points. But we already have the mini series From the Earth to the Moon that generally covers a lot of that ground. Even if he was "just" the beneficiary of the flight rotation, there will always be a fascination (justified or not) behind the man at the center, just as there is (to an understandably lesser degree) about Paul Tibbets (Enola Gay pilot). At the end of the day, while we should be wanting more movies about the people behind Apollo, it's the guy(s) at the top of the rocket that mostly captures Joe public's imagination.

You see him fly the X-15 it's rocket powered plane, although it's more like a missiles with oversized fens. This film gets a lot stuff right but make no mistake if Niel was that emotionally troubled he would not have gone into space at all. I will bet my life that Neil would not have approved this film just as those who knew him best have stated as much. This wasn't a good film, it's just average, visually it was excellent, as story it's boring and poorly edited IMO. Even in the context that it's a Neil Armstrong film leaving out the planting of the flag was a huge mistake. Anyone could have been the first man, the US was who did it. That's not to take anything away from Neil he was the man who did it, but it was about an American promise fulfilled and Neil happened to be the man that did it. In terms of American space films it's a distant 3rd behind the Right Stuff and Apollo 13.

We saw the movie. It could have been a great classic historical American movie, even, dare I say, a patriotic one too, without being corny. The mission shots were great. The movie grinded to a halt with the depressing non-supportive feminist type wife. Those parts slowed the movie because they were boring and done with shaky 16mm cameras, however they did use IMAX cameras for the moon shots and some of the other mission shots. The wife turns into a raging feminist by balling out the NASA engineers that they did not know what they are doing and the were boys playing with balsa wood making planes. The Trump hating Canadian director did his best to not make this near patriotic and also did his best to not make it so obvious that he did not want any American patriotism in it. One wide shot that did show the American flag on the moon, you had to squint your eyes to see it, and my brother, sitting next to me, said at the end of the movie, "They didn't even show the American flag on the moon. They should have hired an American military vet for the director. It was worth seeing because of the good scenes of the mission part, however see it only on IMAX theatre for the wide screen and sound.

This was clearly a SCIENCE vs. SCIENCE film meant to question the cost and effort of the space program. Whenever there was a milestone in the space program (good or bad) there was a flash back about how science could not save his daughter. It insinuated that he questioned his participation as being a slight to her memory. What a bunch of made up garbage.

Clear voice, easy narrative... Sam, you are great at videos! Much better then many, many popular DE-vidrs with their squeaky moments and scenarios jumping all over the place. Btw, red really suits you here! Can't imagine how would you look like in brighter lighting 😃

Hollywood tends to be quite bad at "cradle to grave" type stories. Focusing on a smaller period of time was probably the wise decision.

Hollywood is _terrible_ when it comes to biopics. They barrel through the red letter events of a famous person's life and then they're done. Neil Armstrong's life contained one of the biggest red letter days in history, so it makes sense to focus on his pilot and ultimately astronaut career.
