    As a retired high school socia studies teacher, I was really looking forward to seeing this movie. Unfortunately, the movie was one hour too long, it spent too much time covering Oppenheimer's involvement with communists, and way too little time on his achievement, whether or not you agree with the bombing. Instead of seeing a detailed story of how he developed the bomb, we got to see the obligatory nude scene, which was not necessary, and little effort went into the Manhattan Project.

    President Truman was a high school educated man. He had knowledge that Stalin was prepared to attack Manchuria and Japan was more afraid of being conquered by communists and would had surrendered. The US (knew this) and Truman still wanted blood revenge for Pearl Harbour. The fact he dropped a second atomic Bomb on Nagasaki shows his evil limited intellect. The movie is a balanced depiction of Oppenheimer. He was both a genius and an egomaniac. He was selfish and rightly has the blood of 200,000 civilians on his hands. He knew he had created evil and that control of it was in a man with a high school diploma (Truman). He fell into severe depression after he realized he caused a lot of avoidable deaths.

    If you're into fine details, and a lengthy seating, this might be for you. From a professional reviewer's view, this is a must see movie. But I'm a regular joe. My entire family basically fell asleep, while seeing it on imax. Don't let the fiery red movie poster fool you, this is no action film, not even really a suspense film. THe quick snippits of scenes, and similar characters (men in suits) had me loose track of characters easily. Once that happened, I tuned out.

    Feels more like a political thriller than a scientific or military movie. Good acting, good cinematography, and a good presentation of Oppenheimer's evolution from developing as a scientist, over the pragmatist in the Manhattan project, to waking up to the consequences of his achievements. Yes, the Gini was out of the bottle, but the question remains if the ends justified the means.

    Finally a movie that shows you a great man and how he handled the egotistical beings of this world. Noland brought a bit of the spirit of love and wisdom that is not of this world. Thank you for such a gift! God Bless us All!
