  • The movie is sleek, smart, and reasonably thorough, and it offers the enticement of never-before-seen home movies provided by Armstrong's family.

  • With the 50th anniversary of man's first steps on the moon just days away, movies dealing with the event have been thick on the land for awhile. But even if you think you've seen enough, "Armstrong" is worth your time.

  • This retelling of the Neil Armstrong story has been eclipsed by superior studies of his historic lunar mission.

  • There are several points throughout "Armstrong" that feel sluggish... but it does manage to soar (please forgive the pun) once it actually brings the audience to the moon with Armstrong, Aldrin, and command module pilot Michael Collins.

  • It's all watchable enough but hardly a giant leap for documentary making.

    Jul 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Much of the story falls on his family and colleagues and this lack of deeper probing means that the movie falls into retelling of the NASA mission.
