Trivia

When this movie was first aired on the History Channel (US), the moment when the character of Neil Armstrong puts his foot on the moon was timed to within a minute of the 40th anniversary of Armstrong actually stepping on the moon. See more »

Goofs

In a scene in the command module, as Aldrin retrieves a pen in free-fall (which is later used to make a broken switch operable), Kubrick's trick from '2001: A Space Odyssey' is employed: the 'weightless' pen is adhered to a sheet of glass to make it appear as though it is floating. As the pen is retrieved, a smudge of glue is visible on the glass. See more »

The human side of the moon
21 July 2009 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Everyone knows the basic story, and when there is an anniversary there is a glut of documentaries. This dramatized version is different, in that it focuses mainly on the human relationships. It makes Buzz Aldrin into an ambitious and slightly abrasive character who would quarrel with Neil Armstrong, if only the the latter were not so easy-going (not to say bland). Well, that's how it's played here. I don't know how true it is.

It's entertaining and well acted. Daniel Lapaine has a good (moon) shot at Neil Armstrong - not an easy thing to do.

I'd only really criticize the structure of the film. It is packed with flashbacks, so much so that it's quite confusing at times.
