Such a deal. John Kennedy declared that the United States was going to the moon - before the end of the decade. Imagine that. We barely had computers. We had people who were called computers, because that's what they did - they solved math problems. And in the middle of this movie, when one of the most important trials was on the verge of failure, it was another computer, named Neil Armstrong, who while floating around in space, takes out a pencil and paper (I know it was a pencil because pens don't work in space) and solves the problem. Before you know it, the spacecraft moves to find the other piece that it was trying to find, and they get it hooked up.
Time and again in this movie, Neil Armstrong figures stuff out, or has the coolest head, and you get the sense that maybe nobody else would have gotten us to the moon, and put his "small step for man" down in the lunar dust. I really liked this movie. It was not what you might expect. It's frankly as mundane as suburbia was in the 60's. So it's actually very subtle, while simultaneously being scary and exciting. I say 4 paws.
