First Man Movie Review: A Peek Into The Historic Event Of The Century
First Man Movie Review: Ryan Gosling has decided to take up a really cool subject in his acting career after his stint in La La Land in 2016. The film is directed by Damien Chazelle and produced by Universal Pictures.
Finally years after getting the hangover of Gravity, Interstellar and The Martian, The movie buffs are ready to witness another journey into the deep dark world of space with the help of First Man, which recounts the journey of Neil Armstrong who was the first man to set his step on the moon.
The role of Neil Armstrong is played by none other than the chocolate boy Ryan Gosling who completely blends into the role of a reluctant American Hero happy with his family consisting of his wife and his children. The film goes through the process behind the historic moment which was viewed by everyone in the world and that conversation Giant Leap For Mankind takes the viewers to a different world. If you are planning to watch this movie in IMAX when you see Neil Armstrong's first walk, it looks as he is actually on the moon. Then we get to see a bunch of controversies surrounding the "moon" landing stating that it was shot in some desert and made it look as if he was in the moon.
Director Damien Chazelle has definitely hit the jackpot with this film after directing masterpieces like Whiplash and La La Land. He has paid very good attention to the detail especially making a historic event more modern to the general audience worldwide.
The cast especially Ryan Gosling acts to perfection as the role of Neil Armstrong and Claire Foy gives good expressions as the first wife of Neil during the intense and serious scenes of the film. Lukas Haas and Corey Stoll have given justice to their roles as Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.
The vacuum is felt as the background score when the space shuttle takes off and that starts you giving you goosebumps. Well definitely, this is the future of cinema where we get to see something more out-of-the-ordinary.
