Wow what a boring if not visually stunning film, no character building no historical accuracy just put a woman in there to fit in with the times. There is just no meat there to keep you watching

Came to see this without too many expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The backstory wasn't very interesting and a bit slow to develop but the balloon scenes were beautifully rendered, thrilling and engaging. I literally clung to my seat during some of them. I liked how the film respected the scientific endeavor and the viewers by avoiding cliche romantic developments between its characters. Overall, an entertaining night, even if I won't remember it by tomorrow.

As long you nothing about the real story you'll enjoy this and see it for what it is - a visual masterpiece which would be amazing in IMAX .

History was made by Glaisher and his male co pilot reaching roughly the height of Everest - the achievements of Victorians in their primitive pioneering equipment has to be admired

For drama and film fans the fictional female co pilot works really well and adds to the story who cares if it's not accurate - is Shakespeare historical ? Not it's drama based on history .

Felicity Jones is the star of the show both in her acting and the character she plays .

Greenwich looks great as the obvious location to base most of the film in and the drama in the basket could easily transfer to stage .

The film deserves credit for costume , setting and make up .

It's a film like a piece of classical music it takes a while to get into but builds up to a great crescendo always backed up by a great script

This is a must see in the theater. It's stunning. Both visually and from a performance perspective. Everything is A+ and the bonus is that it's good for the whole family. Felicity is doing things you've never seen her do before and Eddie is fantastic. Wonderful supporting cast but the achievement is how tense and giant in scope the movie is while seemingly confined in a small space.

"The Aeronauts" is an amazing film. After all, it's released by Amazon Pictures....yet has a huge budget. It's also one of the most visually arresting films I've ever seen and MUST be seen on the big screen, not your home television. This is because it's all about a famous balloon flight well over a hundred years ago...one that set a record but nearly killed the folks in the process.

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne must have been cost Amazon a fortune...as well as the amazing aerial scenes (some done with balloons and some CGI...though it all looks amazingly real). It's the story about a world record-setting balloon flight in 1862 that it turns out ISN'T 100% true. Felicity's character actually was a woman balloonist who had died about 40 years BEFORE the film took place! The person who actually did the amazing things she did in the movie was a guy...a guy who received no credit in the film for his actions. This is why although I thoroughly loved the film when I was watching it (preparing to give it a 10), I was very disappointed when I learned the truth about the famous Glaisher flight.

I saw this movie in Toronto for the film festival. I wasn't really expecting much but wow was I impressed! This was the first time in a long time I felt like I was seeing something I'd never seen before.

The special effects were top-notch... they didn't look like CGI and so I was never taken out of the movie. As good as the effects are, they are only PART of what makes this movie great. The characters (played by Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones) are amazing and both actors portray them with strength and vulnerability. Felicity is especially stunning, and she gives an amazing performance that's not to be missed. It takes a while to learn their backstories, but it's worth the investment. They really come to rely on each other in unexpected ways, and by the end you have a real sense of what the balloon ride means to each of them personally. The climax is so filled with suspense and emotion I was gasping in my seat.

REALLY glad I got to see it on the big screen. Would recommend doing the same if you can -- trust me it's worth the effort. You'll get lost in this movie and feel like you've traveled back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood. I hope it releases near me so I can take my kids to see it.
