      So-so 6.5 points

      Adapted based on historical events, today, when "feminist rights" are getting more and more attention, the adaptation strength is earth-shaking. Come back, the Hawking couple played a second fit). Among them, James Glaisher, played by Eddie Redmayne, is a meteorologist. The purpose of his launch is to measure the temperature and humidity in the sky. The heroine played by Felicity Jones is a fictional character that does not exist in history. The one who really went to the...

      Short Review: "Hot Air Balloon Pilot"

      A movie that is extremely suitable for watching on the big screen, the gorgeous picture is high above the simple plot line.

      We followed two brave aviators in the 19th century, boarded a hot air balloon, crossed the stormy clouds, and then bathed in the tranquil sunshine to enjoy the beautiful scenery, and then encountered extreme cold and hypoxia at a height of 10,000...

      Adventure and Freedom

      After watching this film, the only thought in my mind is: although the heroine of the story is fictional, she is also very adventurous. She should be a representative of the type of people who yearn for women's freedom, independence and self-improvement. If women can really do this, the evolution of women's independence and self-improvement should be faster!!! However, history is history, and the heroine turned out to be a fiction!!! This makes me feel more pity for the women of that era. So...

      Science and Beauty

      Not as thrilling (compared to other films of the same type, of course), but I find it more intriguing. Science can help discover the beauty of the world, and the beauty of the world is the driving force for the advancement of science and technology. The embodiment of the conflict, contradiction, understanding and fusion of the theoretical school and the practical school.

      What impressed me the most was the heroine's evaluation...

      From McKee's 'Story' on Movie Benefits - Sky Doors Always Open

      The cinematic visual effects are nothing to say, well-made, realistic and exciting. This article mainly discusses the completion level of the lower narrative. The film narrative can be called complete and exciting. Many domestic directors should really reflect on themselves and how to make a qualified feature film.

      Summed up in one sentence, it tells the story of a hot air balloon flight adventure. This is also the second collaboration between Freckles and...

      The two have collaborated again, and this is too ordinary to enter the awards season. When enthusiastic researchers meet frustrated practitioners and stage a high-altitude redemption, it is the magnificent sights and brave confrontation parts that catch...

      The heroine is also working too hard, and all the coolies let her do it all by herself... For the sake of the little freckles, he behaves quite well, the most exciting part of the hero has fallen asleep...

    Behind the scenes gags

    The balloon in the film is an inflatable balloon, not a Hot Air Balloon, which has not been available for decades in the UK. Therefore, the crew produced this inflatable balloon separately, with a pilot specially equipped, and the inflatable balloon must pass the flight test like a real airplane before it can be put into use.
    The crew needed to shoot many scenes in the sky, so Felicity Jones went to Germany to participate in special...

    Evaluation action

    "The Aeronauts" tells a relatively simple and modest story, but it is indeed very effective. The director conceived the film in a way of slowly coloring the details of interesting characters. In addition, it is commendable that the film did not impose a predictable romantic relationship on the protagonist.
    From a technical point of view, "The Aeronauts" is also very reliable. When the story is presented on the big screen, the film uses...
