  • It's a pretty picture and a sweet adventure, and sometimes that's enough.

    Dec 5, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Equal parts dizzying and dippy, "The Aeronauts" is family entertainment at its most charming and chaste.

    Dec 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's all CGI smoke and mirrors, but the illusion holds; at times, you grip your seat for fear of falling out and down.

    Boston Globe
    Top Critic
  • Captures the danger and beauty of James Glaisher's real-life 1862 balloon flight, but the script by Jack Thorne weighs down Redmayne and Jones with too many fictionalized elements for the film's sense of inspiration and empowerment to get off the ground.

  • The character beats the script hits all feel so perfunctory and predictable, and though the story is wrapped around a novel idea, it's rather a snooze.

    Dec 4, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The actually real Glaisher was joined by a guy named Henry Tracey Coxwell, who writer Jack Thorne has unceremoniously scrubbed from history to satisfy a politically correct agenda. Coxwell has been he-rased.
