“Contrary to most of the reviews I saw on this title, I actually really enjoyed the film. I generally am not one to watch historical films, but I made an exception for this one.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI found the acting great, as they portrayed their characters and their feelings in a convincing yet not overwhelming manner. I also found the direction beautiful from the beginning to the end of the film (the lamp scene in the first few minutes,the hotel Tesla stayed in and so on).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSomething else I need to note, is the fact that they did not try to sugar coat Edisonu0026#39;s character and Teslau0026#39;s naivity and did not portray Westinghouse as the good guy. They gave the oportunity to the viewers to make up their minds for themselves when it comes to whom they support – if the choose to support anyone.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI feel like they did not pay enough attention to a few historical events and skipped a few crucial parts of the story. I wish they actually gave Tesla the recognition he deserved, but I do understand that a film can not possibly fit the entire story without becoming up mundane.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere were moments that the movie started to become a little tiring, which caused me to lose my focus, but they managed to save it by adding some more exciting scenes in between.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn conclusion, I thought it was a good movie, but I wouldnu0026#39;t recommend it to someone who doesnu0026#39;t really care about the subject. It would be a nice addition to a physics class though, if the teacher is willing and prepared to give some further information on some parts that werenu0026#39;t covered thoroughly or at all.”
