In the early 70's, Commander Nathan Walker, Captain Ben Anderson and Lieutenant Colonel John Grey are assigned in a secret mission to the Moon to protect the USA from USSR using detectors. Nathan and Ben land on the Moon in the Liberty module while John stays in orbit in the module Freedom. They collect rock samples and bring them to the Liberty. They also find footprints and the body of a Soviet cosmonaut on the moon. Soon they hear weird noises and they find that they are not alone in the satellite. Written by

NASA's liaison for multimedia, Bert Ulrich, has officially stated that "Apollo 18 is not a documentary ... the film is a work of fiction." See more »
At the beginning of the movie it is stated that in order to conceal the additional manned mission to the Moon, the DoD justifies the launch of the extra Saturn V rocket with the need of putting a very heavy payload in Earth's orbit. However, the launch footage of Apollo 18 shows liftoff of a complete Saturn V with escape tower. As the latter have been so far used only in crewed launches, this would have been revealing (at least in part) of the manned nature of the mission. See more »

Today (Sunday, Sept. 4), I was contemplating going to see Apollo 18. But first I read the reviews here. Upon seeing so many negative ones and so few positive ones, I knew I wanted to see it for sure since I liked The Blair Witch Project and both Paranormal Activity movies. That being said, it was just about what I expected and I liked it a lot. It could have been better, but I wasn't disappointed. I thought the cast was very good. So if you liked previous "found or leaked footage" movies such as Blair Witch Project or the Paranormal Activity movies, don't miss this one! If you're not sure, wait until it comes out on DVD and rent it at Redbox for $1. It's worth a lot more than that!
