Reception of Good Night Oppy

Ben Kenigsberg of The New York Times commented, “While descriptions of the aged robots suffering from arthritis and memory loss are arguably too charming, by the end of ‘Good Night Oppy,’ Opportunity and Spirit are no less lovable than R2-D2 or Wall-E.”

Michael O’Sullivan of The Washington Post gave it 2.5 out of 4 stars and wrote, “It’s such a feel-good story that Oppy may instill in you the same warm, fuzzy sense of satisfaction that she plainly has in her NASA family.”

Aurora Amidon of Paste stated that the film is “emotional but rarely over the top, visually stunning, frequently dabbles in the area of nail-biting thrillers, and, on top of that, it’s really educational.”

Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com gave it three out of four stars, stating, “To get across the magnitude of what his subjects saw and did, White employs commercial filmmaking devices from beginning to end, in the style of the fun-for-all-ages summer blockbusters that dominated the box office in the 1980s and ’90s,” adding, “the score by Blake Neely has a John Williams magic-and-wonder vibe.”
