Balancing each woman's story within the structure of the Space Race is deftly handled, as their workdays require them to give 110 percent and then go home and raise families.

Salutes the trailblazing achievements of three African-American women who worked behind the scenes at Nasa as 'human computers', doing the hard sums before electronic machines were up to the task.

It's mostly fine but largely forgettable, with a script that suffers from flat characters and which treats its story less like the powerful drama it is and more like a straight line evenly peppered with plot points.

Hidden Figures is smart, funny, beautifully acted and altogether entertaining. And essentially true. What else could you possibly want?
June 13, 2017
All things considered, Hidden Figures wraps some fairly radical themes - three African-American women entrusted with important NASA jobs at a time (1961-1962) when Jim Crow was still the law of the land - in a largely unradical package.

... terrific drama, eye-opening history, and a great lesson for Hollywood.

There's nothing wrong with Hidden Figures, and uncomplicated movies like it. It's certainly doing good by shedding light on some figures who shouldn't remain hidden in history.

This drama, which puts black women at its center, is so triumphant, highlighting both the brilliance and lives of three women whose stories have been neglected in history books, and at the same time it elevates the profile of three great actresses.

I liked Hidden Figures so much I went back to see it again. And I liked it just as much the second time.

It may be predictable but it's also one of the most uplifting and triumphant movies of the year.

Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle MonŠe are very, very hard to dislike.

The film isn't always subtle, but a broad brush sometimes leaves behind a big, beautiful swath of color.

February 24, 2017
A largely prosaically told reworking of the outsider-versus-the-system paradigm that gains piquancy from the story it has to tell and the vibrant personages at its centre.

Taraji P. Henson as Katherine Johnson grows more and more confident in each scene. Her gentle no-problem-sir demeanour melts away into pure passion.

Hidden Figures is a rich and uplifting experience.

It's the sparkling individual components that comprise the ideal equation here, rather than any attempt to craft a new formula.
February 23, 2017
A movie that is important, well-performed, and entertaining. It's a real crowd-pleaser, in other words.
February 23, 2017
Just like NASA is feeling its way around space, one rocket at a time, the women in Hidden Figures are launching minor revolutions on the ground, one mathematical formula at a time.
February 23, 2017
Hidden Figures is engaging, entertaining and enlightening -- but by playing fast and loose with historical fact, it risks blunting some of the story's eye-opening emotional force.
