Inaccurate story, not linear facts

The movie is actually slow, with a sad music, giving inacurate profiles about the personalities of Edison, Westinghouse and Tesla. Tesla should be the real hero of the movie, as it happened in reality. The other characters where: Edison, yes a quite original mind but not a genious, being a slave to his need for fame. Westinghouse, JP Morgan : businessman. Tesla: the one that changed the world and died broke in an appartment.

Complete and utter misrepresentation of history..Where Is Tesla?

Complete and utter misrepresentation of history..Where Is Tesla?...Not one mention of all the magnificent work done by the real scientist Nikola Tesla. The other characters were American businessmen...Shame on the producers of the trash.

An interesting story filmed by good hand.........

Prior to see the movie i have never heard about this fascinating story of conflict and trade between Edison and Westinghouse. I found the story very much interesting and enjoyed every part of this. The whole team must be appreciated for their excellent try to transform this plot into a enjoyable , slow paced drama. There are many small battle which sometimes remain undecided..sometimes goes in favour of either one. With these personal and economic battle the movie moves towards the end. Good to see these type of drama movies in between other type of movies. This is totally different from many other movies of 2017.

Film confuso e inconsistente. Un'occasione sprecata.

Another shameless attempt to re-write History

When a movie says it attempts to tell a story based on fact then diverts into mediocrity and supposition, all viewers and people exposed to such fabrications must critically evaluate the worth of the film in the context of informing accurately and thus, this film does not pass any smell test.

To portray the Current war (DC vs. AC current) as between Westinghouse and Edison is completely disingenuous and openly falsely redesigning historical record.

JP Morgan and the Rothschilds banking criminal cartel barely rate a mention and therein is the hidden hand that entirely shaped the entire premise of the synopsis of the "free energy" record that SHOULD have been the story of the Current War.

Poor attempt to re-write history.
