Opinions on Christopher Nolan‘s ‘Oppenheimer‘ are mixed. While some praise its mind-blowing cinematic experience, others express disappointment with certain aspects.
Oppenheimer: A Solid Film with Great Technicals, but a Lackluster Story
Overall, it’s a solid movie with excellent cinematography and sound mixing. However, personally, I wasn’t very intrigued by the story.
‘Oppenheimer’ is a stunning film that effortlessly flies by in three hours. Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. deliver incredibly strong performances. The story is chilling, showing the tragic lack of humanity during World War II on both global and personal levels. With its exceptional cast, wonderful cinematography, and impressive sound mixing, ‘Oppenheimer’ is a triumphant and mind-blowing cinematic experience. However, the storytelling is slightly slow and dull, which may disappoint some viewers.
From Christopher Nolan, ‘Oppenheimer’ tells the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer (played by Cillian Murphy), a brilliant theoretical physicist who was appointed as the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory during World War II, and Oppenheimer’s journey as he works tirelessly to develop the atomic bomb as part of the Manhattan Project, a top-secret government initiative. He works closely with Leslie Groves (played by Matt Damon), a military leader tasked with overseeing the project, and faces opposition from scientists who question the morality of creating such a destructive weapon.
The film stars Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, Emily Blunt as Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer, Matt Damon as Leslie Groves, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, Florence Pugh as Jean Tatlock, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie as Edward Teller, Michael Angarano as Robert Serber, Josh Hartnett as Ernest Lawrence, Kenneth Branagh, Dane DeHaan, Dylan Arnold as Frank Oppenheimer, David Krumholtz as Isidor Isaac Rabi, Alden Ehrenreich, Matthew Modine as Vannevar Bush, Jack Quaid, David Dastmalchian, Jason Clarke, Josh Peck as Kenneth Bainbridge, Devon Bostick as Seth Neddermeyer, Alex Wolff, Tony Goldwyn, Scott Grimes, Josh Zuckerman, and James D’Arcy.
‘Oppenheimer’ hits theaters on July 21, 2023, by Universal Pictures.
