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 »

"First ever animated movie created for 3D". Seriously? Where?
1 December 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

It is pretty surreal what these flies can do... eh well... this is a cartoon, so anything can happen in it.

At first I must tell you that I love animated movies. Unfortunately this year's repertoire is very weak. This cartoon is nothing but a list of flaws:

1) I quoted the tag line. It suggests that this movie has great 3D effects. Well, I did not see any, at least not something special I never saw before.

2) The "flies" in this movie look nothing like real flies. At least they could've make them black. But cyan flies, seriously? With giant heads and slim torsos?

3) The story. I guess it was written for 6 year old kids. I could tell it in two sentences it is so over simplified.

4) Excessive patriotism. For example: "They are American files after all!" Oh, give me a break.
