Trivia

As the lunar module lands on the moon, Aldrin is shown on the left side, which is the Command position, with Armstrong on the right side. This is the reverse of how they were in reality. Furthermore, Armstrong is shown clapping Aldrin on the arm and calls him "Commander". In the end credits all three Apollo XI astronauts are named Commander (a military rank none of the astronauts held -Collins and Aldrin were Air Force colonels). The upshot is that in this fictionalised version of Apollo XI, Aldrin commanded the mission and landed the craft, while Neil Armstrong still makes the historic first walk on the Moon. With the roles reversed, Buzz Aldrin had actually campaigned internally within Nasa for this to be how the mission took place; i.e. that with Armstrong being in command, it would be Aldrin to make the first exit through the door. The film's reorganisation of the positions and ranks may have been made at Aldrin's suggestion, since he was involved in the picture. See more »

Goofs

All three Apollo 11 astronauts are referred to by the title "Commander". Any space mission only has a single commanding officer (the Command Pilot), which for Apollo 11 was Armstrong. See more »

Not real
8 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

There are movies that only (or more likely) work when you watch them with children. Or with your inner child being on. This is no Pixar and nowhere near it of course. But it's still a nice little movie, that succeeds in letting us into a world where flies can be heroes. Of course no kid will want their parents to buy them flies after that ... And of course, the flies do not look anything like real flies. There are quite a few animated movies out there, where science was thrown out for fantasy ... same happens here.

The 3-D is decent enough, but it's more the dialogue and the characters that might convince to watch this and like it. On the other hand, I can see that some people will find it "too patriotic". But I do think, that it plays clever on the whole old rivalry, the two (former) most powerful countries had. If you can handle the cynic in you, you will actually enjoy this
