Which is better: the book or the film? - The Great Gatsby


Oppenheimer (2023) presents the events leading up to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings from the perspective of the creator of the atomic bomb, J. Robert Oppenheimer. Directed by Christopher Nolan, the film is based on the book American Prometheus, written by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin. The film stars Cillian Murphy (Oppenheimer), Emily Blunt (Kitty Oppenheimer), Robert Downey Jr. (Lewis Stauss) and Florence Pugh (Jean Tatlock).

These are some of our reviews:

Nolan succeeds, as usual, in creating a gripping story that, while lasting a full three hours, never feels too slow or dull. The use of innovative filming techniques, talented actors and a suspenseful script have created a film that can only be called extraordinary.


It's a very good film, based on real facts. The narrative thread is done in such a way that it keeps you hooked and interested in what is about to happen. The actors, in my opinion, were chosen very well. I liked the idea of the presence of how the WWII nuclear bomb changed the world. Overall, I liked it and it's the kind of movie that the more times you watch it, the more details you understand that make the story even more complex.


An excellent film. A story about humanity. The character portrays some guilt experienced by the creator of something disastrous and that not all bad things are made by bad people. All the very talented actors managed to convey the full emotion of the character and the audience. The film also gives details on the science side of the story for the enthusiasts. It makes you think about the people who lead us. Who represents you? Who makes the decisions for you? Who really affects human history?


I give "Oppenheimer" a 9/10, 9 because of the far too frequent special effects and the film's focus on politics. "Oppenheimer" portrays the famous scientist during the time he created the atomic bomb as part of the Manhattan Project, which ran from 1942 to 1946. Cillian Murphy really took on the role. It is known that the famous scientist lived on martinis and 100 cigarettes a day and weighed less than 52kg. The actor kept to the following diet: an almond a day to reach Oppenheimer's constitution.
