WHAT I LIKE?
Cheers to one of the most inspiring movie ever made about Space and the science behind. Hidden Figures is not just a celebration of technological breakthrough in space but also a celebration of the brilliant minds behind NASA. These minds include 3 women who became pillar and survived the journey behind the American space mission. I loved the tone of the film. Everything was laid on its perfect timing and succession. I commend how the Director pulled off this amazing and inspiring untold story into a cinematic interpretation that will give us a vivid picture of what happened beyond the mission and brought us into the critical numbers and computations. It may be technical at times but the presentation was done in a very engaging and compelling manner wherein it is actially enjoyable at most times. Aside from showing a great view on racism and gender bias at that time, the film was able to bring us inside NASA itself. The film’s major win lies on its very talented and award-wining cast spearheaded by Taraji, Octavia, Janelle, Kevin and Kirsten. Cheers to some amazing acting to all the characters. The film gave me a very satisfying journey that has also imparted realizations and lessons to everyone. The climax was good. The plot was mixed well with a little background of the characters and has done impressive job on the space mission part. It was so surreal to see Hidden Figures on the big screen. Worth-watching.
