      Alejandro E The lesser known side of Albert Einstein; It is not only the reason why he fled Germany, and where he got the inspiration for his studies on relativity, it is the approximate truth of whether or not he had anything to do with the construction of the atomic bomb. The follow-up, far from being tedious, turns out to be absorbing, even for those who do not like documentaries. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review T F I'd have preferred something more factual and less lecturing. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Ask B The trailer was enticing, the movie a great disappointment. Mostly repetitions of the same quotes with empty melodramatic filling. Provocatively bad. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review Iman R Seems like this was quickly and shoddily made to take advantage of Oppenheimer fever...it has some good archival footage but the dramatic reenactments are terrible...not worth watching and I regret doing so. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Valerii Ege D Einstein and the Bomb tries to show the renowned scientist's sorrow and society's condemnation because of his participation in the Nuclear Bomb. The idea is well-thought-out, but crafting it is like a mediocre YouTube video. It could have been a movie, not a documentary. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Aleks S Achieves a whole new level of "loosely based on events..." Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Chris Vognar Rolling Stone Packs a wallop in detailing how the man widely considered the father of atomic energy came to influence the innovations of the Manhattan Project, and how he lived to regret it. Feb 19, 2024 Full Review John Anderson Wall Street Journal A moving and even poetic mixed-media meditation on Albert Einstein... Feb 17, 2024 Full Review Emiliano Basile EscribiendoCine While it has a TV movie production level, it cleverly takes archival material to deliver an entertaining fiction, somewhat telenovela-like, that helps paint the war climate scientists experienced at that time. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 7/10 Feb 29, 2024 Full Review Pablo O. Scholz Clarín There is no need to worry because everything is quite explained, and even some phrases are reiterated throughout the film. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/4 Feb 27, 2024 Full Review Rohan Naahar The Indian Express Cheaply made and not particularly insightful, the new Netflix historical docudrama claims to be fact-based but relies mostly on silly reenactments. Feb 27, 2024 Full Review Jennifer Green Common Sense Media But it isn't likely to find a broad audience beyond history buffs and viewers with a special interest in the figure of Einstein.
