Particle Fever is a fascinating movie about science, and an exciting, revealing and sometimes poignant movie about scientists.

Levinson follows the ups and downs of bringing that beast of a collider online, but the movie's deepest thrill lies in what these men and women will theorize next, and how they will test it.
Particle Fever succeeds on every level, but none more important than in making the normally intimidating and arcane world of genius-level physics at least conceptually comprehensible and even friendly to the lay viewer.
There's a palpable excitement around the search for knowledge, and this film captures that beautifully.
For all their concentration on the human factor, the filmmakers by no means shortchange the aesthetic dimensions of LHC.
