Initial Reactions for 'Oppenheimer' Praise Christopher Nolan Calling It His "Most Impressive Work Yet."

Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming film, Oppenheimer, is considered one of the most highly anticipated summer films. Universal Pictures bet on the summer blockbuster is slated to hit theaters worldwide this month. The atomic bomb epic had its world premiere even in Paris, and the initial reactions are in for the nearly three-hour-long drama.

Film critics worldwide give Oppenheimer multiple thumbs up, praising Nolan and the cast. Kenneth Turan, who wrote for The Los Angeles Times, stated that this film is “arguably Nolan’s most impressive work yet in the way it combines his acknowledged visual mastery with one of the deepest character dives in recent American cinema.” Other critics, like deputy editor of Total Film Matt Maytum, said that the film left him “stunned.” Commenting on the actors’ performances, he said, “It’s> a character study on the grandest scale, with a sublime central performance by Cillian Murphy. An epic historical drama but with a distinctly Nolan sensibility: the tension, structure, sense of scale, startling sound design, and remarkable visuals. Wow.” Another critic added that Emily Blunt deserves a supporting actress nomination at the Oscars.

Oppenheimer features a star-studded cast that includes Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Michael Angarano, and Josh Hartnett alongside Blunt and Murphy. The film is based on the 2005 novel American Prometheus by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, chronicling when theoretical physicist and Manhattan Project leader J. Robert Oppenheimer became the father of the atomic bomb.

Oppenheimer opens in theaters on July 21.
