Goofs

In the emergency scenario the spacesuit connectors for cooling water and oxygen from the PLSS (Portable Life Support System) are reversed and the BSLSS (Buddy Secondary Life Support System) hose is incorrectly connected between the suit oxygen inlets. The BSLSS shared only the cooling water from a single working PLSS, not oxygen. This allowed the astronaut with the failed PLSS to extend his emergency oxygen supply. See more »

Shocked
23 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is shockingly short. Granted I did not check the run time before purchasing a ticket, but I expected the movie to be longer.

Also, despite excellent effects, amazing pictures (especially when viewed in a IMAX 3D), and excellent narration; the movie did not contain much information. The movie gives more of the feelings behind a journey to the moon, pointing out how something might have gone wrong, that it's a long journey, the people to take the journey were heroes, etc... No actual useful information. This disappointed me as I was expecting something educational.

One thing I the movie did provide was less popular comments from less known astronauts from the other Apollo missions.

Other than the short length and the lack of educational comment, it was enjoyable to watch. The visual effects are surprising and realistic (at times, because of the 3d effects you feel the sudden urge to dodge something or get out of the way of something coming at you)
