Did Ed White have it right when he said, "If a civilization doesn't try to expand its horizons, it can never grow as a nation." What was that about American prestige again?

Aside from a few glimpses of emotion at the death of his daughter, I never got any sense of feeling or personality from Neil Armstrong

The cool special effects can't overcome the flat script and ultra-restrained acting. Neil Armstrong may not have been brimming with charisma, but the director and actor needed to reach deeper and find something human for the audience to connect to.

Chazelle's biopic about Neil Armstrong is candid and humble. Award season fuel that lacks a certain ferocity to be considered an epic and worthy biography.

First Man's privileging of the forbidding reality of the space program points to a kind of anti-triumphant masochism, a belief that the destination is less important than the grueling misery of the journey.

Chazelle allows us to feel the terror of space and right there is where the main attraction for the film is and it's a small step in his career, but is not far from being a giant leap for cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]
