Goofs

For the future scene at the end of the film we are told it takes place at "Aitken Basin - South Pole" and that it's at 16 48 S. Latitude. 16 48 south latitude is nowhere near the south pole. It's much closer to the lunar equator that to the lunar south pole. See more »

Outstanding! Great use of 3D technology...
22 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Outstanding! What a great tribute to the Apollo space program. A great use of 3D technology. I loved all of the star voices sitting in for the Apollo astronuats. I recognized some of them, not all of them. This movie - only about 45 minutes long - shows us past footage and new footage of what it was like to fly an Apollo mission to the moon. Including hypothetical worst case scenarios and what moon travel might be like in the future. For those who remember the Apollo missions, this will be a great reminder and tribute to those days of the late 60's & 70's. And for those who have no frame of reference, what a great way to learn about what it was like. The 3D effects are outstanding, not gimmicky. Please go see this movie and take your kids. I remember very little of the Apollo missions when they occurred, but this movie actually had me choked up at the end. I only wish it was longer...
