Did You Know?


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 »


When the flies are congratulating themselves for being on the Moon, they are floating in the air, yet they should be falling or flapping their wings to keep themselves air-born. The LAM just landed and the Moon's gravity should be present. See more »

It is not that bad!
8 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of course there are flaws with it, but it is not as bad as people say it is, but it could have been much better. It is dull in comparison to works by Pixar and Dreamworks, but I did actually enjoy it. There are better animated films out there, namely Beauty and the Beast but there have been a lot worse animated films as well, like the sequel to the Secret of Nimh. The script has its ups and downs, but I did actually laugh at a bit of the humour that was attempted. I do agree though that the female flies fainting act was overdone quite badly. The animation, in its 2D and 3D form is actually nicely done, in fact a vast majority of it was amazing. The main flaw with the film is the story. A bit slow and predictable, but the voice talents did well to redeem themselves in the slower bits. Another problem was the ending, Buzz Aldrin telling us that this wasn't a true story was unnecessary, we know that already. About the pace, although the film is relatively short, it just feels longer. But believe me, there has been a lot worse 3D films like Spy Kids 3, (with little sense of wonder, predictable story lines and an embarrassing cameo from Sylvester Stallone) The voice talents were very good. Christopher Lloyd made a good effort with Grandpa, and the three child flies were well done. Nicollette Sheridan also did well as his love interest, Nadia. Tim Curry, Russian accent and all, a little reminiscent of Von Talon in Valiant, also does well, despite his character being in the film for about 10 minutes, and his questionably meagre material. Most impressed me most was the soundtrack, with "Fly me To The Moon" and Strauss's Blue Danube waltz, which is one of my favourite pieces of classical music. All in all, a good film, that suffered because of the story, but I will say it was very dull at times. Whether you want to watch it is up to you. 7/10. Bethany Cox
