Hidden Figures is exactly what you'd expect, a fun, well made movie with good tension, characters, sets, cinematography, acting, and plot. Now from what I said, you may wonder why I did not give this an 8 or even a 7. But that's cause all the elements are only good, not great. Almost every aspect of this movie is good, but not good enough to recommend to someone serious in films. If you want to watch a empowering well put movie with great acting, then I highly recommend this. Ok I lied, the acting is more than good, it's quite great, Taraji P. Henson and Kevin Costner were very good. Octavia Spencer was good, but I found her performance in Fruit vale Station and other films to be better. Jim Parsons was bad. Most of his lines did not match him and should have been given to another actor. Also every word was nervously sputtered similar to The big Bang Theory, which made the character worse. The movie is visually appealing and never looked ugly. The plot and events were good, but there was one moment without spoiling where a character has issues with another, but their issues are fixed quickly. I have a pet peeve when this happens, and unnecessary, but maybe it happened in her life, so that point isn't entirely useful. All in all, this movie has lot's of good elements, but none of them are entirely amazing. 6.5/10 and maybe a 7.
