The much anticipated movie First Man finally made its landing in theatres.
This movie has it all — a great cast, wonderful performances, visionary directing, and breathtaking special effects.
It only misses the landing with one thing... "Why?”
Unlike other historical epic masterpieces, the production team chose to leave out some key elements of history to make the moon race more of a "human accomplishment" and not the result of the desperate state of the U.S. in the Cold War.
But this omission doesn't change the wonderful production and impressive execution of First Man.
However, choosing to ignore the primary motivation for the mission weakens the heroic truth and leaves the audience asking, "Why did so many people need to die to accomplish this?"
