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.

I enjoyed it
6 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was nearly put off seeing it by some of the reviews here.

SO I thought twice about seeing it, however I like sci-fi so had to watch.

The plot is well covered in other reviews.

Yes the style is different but it is in keeping with the moon landing and pictures taken at the time. Its all filmed as though done through the hand-held moon cameras.

Some reviews said actors were wooden but that is the whole point, they are supposed to be normal people (well as normal as any astronauts ) can be.

The test for me is :-

Would I watch it again, yes
