We Got This Covered - Robert Yaniz Jr.
While Hidden Figures hits many of the beats one would expect, Melfi's film strikes a delicate balance of injecting levity within the character-based historical drama that propels the story forward.

TheWrap - Alonso Duralde
Hidden Figures is feel-good history, but it works, and it works on behalf of heroes from a cinematically under-served community. These smart accomplished women had the right stuff, and so does this movie.
70
Variety - Peter Debruge
Hidden Figures is empowerment cinema at its most populist, and one only wishes that the film had existed at the time it depicts - though ongoing racial tensions and gender double-standards suggest that perhaps we haven't come such a long way, baby.

The Hollywood Reporter - Sheri Linden
The fine, spirited work of Taraji P. Henson, Spencer and Janelle Monae as irresistible rooting interests, as well as Kevin Costner's winningly lived-in turn as the head of Langley's Space Task Group, deepen a film that's propelled by sitcommy beats and expository dialogue.

Hidden Figures (2016)


As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as 'human computers', we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
