Interesting how few people liked this move on this site....I loved it, played the exciting last segment over, the landing on the moon, very realistic and quite moving....the opening sequence as well, in the X15, the rather primitive - by today's standards - vehicle that tested the technology for space travel first developed in the 1960s.....to get ready for the moon flight, Armstrong went into "the zone" (total focus), and the movie documents some of the effects of this rather radical change in his personality, on his family and his personal life....he and his wife suffer a serious loss as well, and the movie shows how he deals with it, very moving indeed....won't give away the ending, but it is very well played by the cast, and Ryan Gosling especially did a great job....maybe the difference in my enjoyment of the movie is that it brought back memories for me of the space race with the Russians, and the politics behind the amazing achievements of the NASA space program....
