Oppenheimer (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Bilge Ebiri New York Magazine/Vulture That the director turned this most devastating of stories into a riveting pop culture phenomenon without ceding one inch on its tragic dimensions is surely an achievement for the ages. Dec 9, 2023 Full Review Oppenheimer (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Sergio Burstein Los Angeles Times What he [Nolan] has put before our eyes definitively deserves to be seen, as does Cillian Murphy's performance in the role of Oppenheimer and the irreconcilable but fantastic Robert Downey Jr. in the role of Lewis Strauss. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 5, 2023 Full Review Oppenheimer (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Kimber Myers Crooked Marquee This is a complex look at a complicated man, but Oppenheimer unequivocally establishes that this is a story worth telling -- and that Nolan was the perfect filmmaker to do it. Rated: A- Aug 3, 2023 Full Review Oppenheimer (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Paul Klein FILMHOUNDS Magazine What might be surprising is that dropping the bomb is not that moment in history, Nolan is more interested in how one misinterpretation of a conversation can have long lasting effects. Rated: 5/5 Jul 5, 2024 Full Review Oppenheimer (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Tony Macklin tonymacklin.net Oppenheimer is a phenomenal achievement.http://tonymacklin.net/content.php?cID=1003 Rated: 8/10 Jun 15, 2024 Full Review Oppenheimer (2023) | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Chris McCoy Memphis Flyer Oppenhiemer is a return to form for Nolan after the fiasco of Tenet. There's a great movie hiding amidst all of the formal pyrotechnics. But I guess it's too much to ask for a lighter touch from a director who is about as subtle as an atomic bomb.

Stanley s This movie was very well done. It is refreshing to see a movie with an actual story for adults. Thank you! Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/03/24 Full Review Dayton S It's an amazing movie that repeats the history itself! My first time seeing it was the sound got ear-pierced even with the A-bomb test went off and it was gonna blow me up to smithereens. 😂 But Cillian Murphy's role was great and I'm proud of Robert Downey Jr who supported over the movie. Christopher Nolan is the best director ever! Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review izzy b Oppenheimer got its recognition for best picture of 2024 at the Oscars. I was captivated from beginning to end with Cillian Musphy's performance and his ability to capture the essence of Oppenheimer's character. From the visuals to the acting to the dialogue, this film deserved its awards at the Oscars. I look forward to watching it a second time. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Enzo It’s very interesting Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Ronnie Well donefor a 3 hour movie it moved along at a nice pace. Fantastic acting, wonderful screen play, beautiful editing. But not my favorite 2023 film, that still goes to Poor Things. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Carol Story and acting were superb but back ground music was too loud.
