About the Event

During  World War II, Lt. Gen. Leslie Groves Jr. appoints physicist J. Robert  Oppenheimer to work on the top-secret Manhattan Project. Oppenheimer and  a team of scientists spend years developing and designing the atomic  bomb. Their work comes to fruition on July 16, 1945, as they witness the  world's first nuclear explosion, forever changing the course of  history.

Peter  Travers  ABC News:  "Christopher Nolan deserves every superlative for  his take on J. Robert Oppenheimer (a flawless Cillian Murphy), the dark  knight of the atomic age. This terrifying, transfixing epic emerges as a  monumental achievement on the march into screen history."

Kyle  Smith  Wall Street Journal:  "Mr. Nolan’s utterly enthralling film  lasts three hours. But despite being as talky as a math seminar, it  crackles, hurtles and whooshes, generating more suspense and excitement  than anything found in the alleged climaxes of the recent superhero  pictures."

Mick  LaSalle  San Francisco Chronicle:  "The movie is so vigorously  directed, not only in terms of sight but also sound, that probably the  best a critic can do is point you toward the experience and say,  “It’s that.”

Manohla  Dargis  New York Times:  "“Oppenheimer” is a great achievement in  formal and conceptual terms, and fully absorbing, but Nolan’s filmmaking  is, crucially, in service to the history that it relates."

Richard  Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "Magnificent. Christopher Nolan’s  three-hour historical biopic Oppenheimer is a gorgeously photographed,  brilliantly acted, masterfully edited and thoroughly engrossing epic  that instantly takes its place among the finest films of this decade."
