First Man was a very powerful experience for me. I remember leaving the theatre in awe of what I just saw. I consider this the best movie of 2018. This is my review of “First Man”.
The plot of this movie is about Neil Armstrong and his life leading up to the moon landing and the landing itself.
I loved that the movie went into his life when he wasn’t on the moon or on a test mission. We see here that Neil was actually a bit of a jerk at times, but he still cared about his family and friends.
The story is also just great in general. The story had a sense of direction unlike anything I’ve seen in cinema.
The acting in the movie is great. Everyone does a great job here and succeeds spectacularly at translating the characters’ emotions.
Also, the soundtrack is great. It really helps display the tone the film tries to present.
Verdict: First Man is a great film and in my opinion the best film of 2018. It’s moving, it’s insightful, and has sheer determination that I’ve never seen before.
My next review is about a film I won’t give away, but I’ll give you a hint. It’s called “Hobbs and Shaw”.
