    Again, disappointed by this overhype world. I keep falling for it because I’m a movie goer. This is race bait. The last racially charged movie that was worth watching was “the help”. This goes in the can with “the Butler.”

    As an aeronautical engineer, I worked at NASA Langley between 1962 and 1979. What the film tried to depict was definitely NOT NASA Langley, not even close.
  • AMAZING MOVIE! INSPIRING!

    It's so funny reading some of these negative views that says the events or siturations that happened in this movie are fiction. The movie was amazing and highlighed the contributions (that were/are often not acknowledged) African Amercan women made to such an important part of history during a very hateful time. Must see!

    So I went and did some research & found that actually these women did accomplish the things pointed out in the movie. I would like for those stating that the events were not real to point out why so that they may enlighten us. Personally, I would have loved to have studied this in school. Some of the other characters in the movie were made up however, the main characters & their stories were true. GREAT MOVIE.

    Racial, historic revisionist propaganda at it's purest form.
  • This is pure BS

    This story is not based on a true story. It takes the tiniest germ of truth and parades it as a factual retelling of history. As a black AMERICAN I don't feel like we need anymore evil white people movies to further exploit an already racially charged time in society. But even more importantly, NONE OF THIS MOVIE IS FACT BASED! I'm proud as an AMERICAN of our wonderful country's accomplishments in the space race..it was one of our finest hours. I'm okay with the fact that white men led the charge...you all should be too. Blacks don't need to shoehorn themselves into American History that we weren't involved in...it's really disigenuous and wreaks of desperation. Oh! Look at us! We helped with the space program too! It's pathetic. Go rent Glory instead and see some real Black Americans make real American history.

    Proof that Intelect is race free and sex free, and a white dominant world could and STILL is wrong. I am also white but colorblind to race.
  • Truly Inspirational. We loved it!

    Why isn’t Johnson mentioned in John Glenn’s John Glenn: A Memoir or Alan Shepard’s Moon Shot: The Inside Story of America’s Race to the Moon? Why does Charles Murray not mention her in his seminal book on the Apollo program (co-authored with Katherine Murray), Apollo: Race to the Moon? Why is Johnson not mentioned in Tom Wolfe’s epic The Right Stuff,documenting the sensational story of NASA’s first astronaut group, the all-white Mercury 7? Why, especially oddly, is Johnson not mentioned in We Could Not Fail: The First African Americans in the Space Program? Why was Johnson not mentioned in either Jet or Ebony magazine, two black magazines that spent the 1960s and 1970s simultaneously lamenting the lack of blacks at NASA and celebrating any minor achievements of blacks in the space program?
  • Everyone should see this movie.

    SoFun!

    Based on a true story of three of NASA's female scientists during segregation, it is a story woven around the lives of three brilliant women who were part of the foundation of the United State's space program. The film depicts many of the challenges that were faced not only by women, but by women of color as they tried to break into scientific careers. It is not history rewritten, it is history that has been undercovered and undervalued. It is time these women received the credit they deserve, they had equal or higher qualifications than some of their peers and often not recognized for their valuable contributions to the space race. It exposes the hard work by all those who supported the calculations and engineering troubleshooting for the nation's first manned orbit of the earth. It is not only well acted but its a fun, visually appealing and compelling story. All can find inspiration in this film, for the youth of America this movie can serve as a springboard for what kind of hard work and dedication it takes to explore new frontiers and advance human achievement. Finally, the release of this movie is timely given John Glenn's recent passing, and speaks to the character of this man who was not only one of America's great heroes but also always a first class gentleman, humble and kind.

    Went with friends on a rainy day to see this flick. It's awesome! It's more than about color. It's about overcoming obstacles and sheer determination and theses ladies did more than a great job portraying these wonderful women. I gave only 4 stars due to some historical inaccuracies. Well worth watching and sharing as it inspires. 👍👍👍👍✈️
  • Well done for the most part.

    Overall pretty good history except I doubt if only Glenn was the only astronaut who came down the line to shake hands, after all the military had been integrated since 1947. And my guess is that the IBM crew knew how to get their system set up and running without outside help.
