Moon Shot a great portrayal of America's entry to the Space Age.
14 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Moon Shot is the story of the astronauts that flew in the first flights into space thru the last flight of an Apollo space craft. It is a very solid and well put together film, exciting, action packed, and filled with scenes of high emotion (Apollo 1 fire, Apollo 8's Christmas Eve reading from Genesis, Apollo 13's ordeal, the final scene as a tribute to Deke Slayton). There is humor and a feeling of the type of personalities it took to man these crafts and fly into outer space. We are reminded of the political climate of the 60s, the leadership of JFK, the way the program treaded thru the late 60s. The show has what amounts to 3 climaxes. The first is the flight of Apollo 8, which was the first flight to orbit the moon. The Christmas Eve reading from Genesis is moving. The 2nd climax is the landing of Apollo 11 and the time that craft spent on the moon's surface. The 3rd was about Slayton finally getting to fly into space in 1975. For anyone that wants to get a feel of the way things were in the 60s, this is a grand film to watch.
