Fails to deliver
16 October 2018 | by generalthoughtSee all my reviews

The movie was generally factually accurate.

However, any good movie should accomplish 3 objectives: 1. Educational - achieved in 'First Man' 2. Enlightening - failed 3. Entertaining - failed

Movie goers are likely to leave the movie feeling quite flat.

Not recommended.
