This film is INCREDIBLY AMAZING!!! Very INSPIRING AND INSPIRATION!!! I deserves 10 STARS!! AWESOME MOVIE!!
Over an over
The tone is earnest, with dialogue that sometimes plods when you want it to fly — a running time of 127 minutes doesn’t help the pacing — and a couple of pieces of casting are infelicitous: Jim Parsons gives a flat performance as the fictional Paul Stafford, NASA’s lead engineer, and Glen Powell is years too young to play John Glenn, who looks like a gung-ho frat boy.
Its positive message about education, the value of hard work, and the power of social commitment make it a must-see for parents and kids alike.
The fine, spirited work of Taraji P. Henson, Spencer and Janelle Monae as irresistible rooting interests, as well as Kevin Costner’s winningly lived-in turn as the head of Langley’s Space Task Group, deepen a film that’s propelled by sitcommy beats and expository dialogue.
