Atom User Reviews
A decent period drama with some uneven pacing. Felicity is great, but I found Redmane boring and uninteresting. The story is fine, if jumpy, but there were parts and characters that just felt completely unnecessary. I feel like this would've been better suited to a mini-series where the various characters' backstories and development could've been handled far better.
Great lead actors, riveting plot and marvelous visuals.
The Aeronauts is a film flawed from its first concept. By blending fact and fiction so freely, Thorne and Harper turned a story of scientific discovery into a muddling romantic adventure that crashes and burns.
A thrilling, action-packed, wide-vista yarn from the sharp quills of Jack Thorne and co-writer and director Tom Harper, this Amazon-backed project is deceptively simple yet surprisingly deft.
The Aeronauts achieves impressive elevation as a bracing and sympathetic account of two early and very different aviators who together reached literal new heights in a perilous field of endeavor.
