Fat Man and Little Boy Reviews

August 28, 2018
Drama about development of atomic bomb; violence, language.

A boring film that fails to transcend from its basic idea, remaining as a story without too much tell about that small group, and how it affects their work to their respective personal lives. [Full review in Spanish]

Fat Man and Little Boy is a fiction based on the Manhattan Project, but it is thin and unfocused and hardly even suggests the enormous moral and practical questions that the scientists wrestled with in the New Mexico desert.
