Critic Reviews for Hawking
For a person who is keenly aware of the downside of fame - he worries that he is known as much for his illness as he is for his scientific discoveries - the storytelling falls short.
He talks a lot about his two wives. This makes Hawking unusually revealing, because his life has almost always been framed in terms of his mental brilliance.
As billed, an intimate look at a genius, but the science gets a major haircut here.
The lasting takeaway from the film is how much there is to this man.
The focus is on Hawking's scientific achievements and celebrity status at the expense of much emotional content, but it's hardly fair to expect a warts-and-all portrait
The movie has the typical mix of interviews and archival pictures, serving mostly linear storytelling, with hardly a frame of surprising or pretty filmmaking. Maybe creativity can take a rest when you're letting an oddly charismatic genius have his say.
