The primary reactions to Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer have dropped following a world premiere in Paris. Following the almost three-hour screening, critics are praising Cillian Murphy’s efficiency and calling the movie “awe-inspiring,” “staggering” and a “spectacular achievement.”
Complete Movie editor Matt Maytum stated the movie left him “stunned” and known as Cillian Murphy’s efficiency “sublime.” “An epic historical drama but with a distinctly Nolan sensibility: the tension, structure, sense of scale, startling sound design, remarkable visuals. Wow,” he added.
Jonathan Dean of The Sunday Occasions says he was “totally absorbed” by the movie calling it “a dense, talkie, tense film partly about the bomb, mostly about how doomed we are.”
“Murphy is good, but the support essential: Damon, Downey Jr & Ehrenreich even bring gags. An audacious, inventive, complex film to rattle its audience,” Dean added.
One unfavourable level Dean talked about was that the ladies within the solid “are badly served” noting “Emily Blunt only once gets out of her stressed mother role.” Nonetheless, Dean has already ranked Oppenheimer in his prime three Nolan movies alongside Memento and The Status.
Bilge Ebiri of Vulture tweeted, “OPPENHEIMER is…incredible. The word that keeps coming to mind is ‘fearsome.’ A relentlessly paced, insanely detailed, intricate historical drama that builds and builds and builds until Nolan brings the hammer down in the most astonishing, shattering way.”
Related Press movie author Lindsey Bahr known as Oppenheimer a “spectacular achievement” saying the story of the movie “is a serious, philosophical, adult drama that’s as tense and exciting as Dunkirk. And the big moment – THAT MOMENT – is awe-inspiring.”
Collider’s editor-in-chief Steven Weintraub stated the movie “is incredible” including, “Every aspect of the film is worth talking about from the brilliant performances, to #HoytevanHoytema’s amazing work behind the camera, to the way Nolan tells the story. The 3-hour run time flies by. See it in @IMAX 70mm if you can.”
Jeremy Mathai from Slash Movie stated Oppenheimer was “staggering in every sense of the word.”
“Might sound nuts to say this about a Chris Nolan movie that isn’t INCEPTION, DUNKIRK, or even TENET, but this could be his most formally daring work yet,” he added. “Sharp script, impeccable sound design, and Cillian Murphy is a *force*.”
Oppenheimer hits theaters on July 21 and it additionally stars Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Josh Hartnett, Casey Affleck, Rami Malek and Kenneth Branagh, amongst others.
