This movie is a disgrace to all of the sacrifices & hard work that went into the moon landing!! By omitting the scene of Neil & Buzz planting the American Flag on the moon, it undermines everything about the mission!!!
@urban-legend I see what you're saying and I agree...to a certain point. I do think it would have been nice to see that flag-planting moment in the film.
However, having watched the movie last night, to me it felt like the whole focus of the film was not designed to be on the mission itself, but rather on Neil's very personal journey to being the first man on the moon. The scene where he leaves the bracelet in the crater is probably the best example of this, because had the movie been mostly about the mission, they could have shown the flag planting scene then instead of the personal moment remembering his daughter. I actually felt like the movie honored the sacrifices of all those involved in the missions (both Gemini and Apollo) through Neil's reactions to them. And his disgust that politicians would want to pull funding for the missions, especially AFTER the sacrifices his fellow astronauts made and were making to accomplish the objectives.
I thought the movie was very well done.
@urban-legend Hey maybe see the movie first, bud. You're a disgrace to all of the hard work and sacrifice that goes into commenting on movies.
@urban-legend That's a pretty shallow and narrow perspective IMO.
@urban-legend I really don't understand how you could completely miss the point of the movie.The movie is about the man. It is literally in the title.
@urban-legend I saw heaps of sacrifice, hard work and the flag... did you see the same film?!
