Storyline

What if Apollo 11 never actually made it? What if, in reality, Stanley Kubrick secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the US administration? This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to swinging sixties London, where a stubborn CIA agent will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with a lousy manager of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time, in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.

Trivia

Kidman beats up the motorcycle gang to the same music that Alex and his droogs beat up the rival gang in "A Clockwork Orange", as the style in which the fight proceeds is quite similar to the fight in "A Clockwork Orange" as well. Also one of the gang members in "Moonwalkers" and one of the gang members in "A Clockwork Orange" (Billyboy) are quite alike. See more »

Goofs

As the Apollo 11 mission is broadcast on TV in the film, the song "Fortune Son" with Credence Clerawater Revival is played in the background, but the song was actually released in September 1969, one month after the Apollo landing. See more »

Argo meets Lock, Stock and Two Loaded Barrels. Via Hangar 18. On acid.
17 January 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

The film was fun, if anything. All actors play well. Ron Perlman is a delight as an old CIA operative that has the shakes from all his Vietnam missions and wants to kill everybody, Rupert Grint basically plays Ron Weasley without the wand and Misfit Robert Sheenan is great as an unreliable but fun druggie who is always wasted.

The plot is totally silly and at no time is this film in danger of being used as proof for conspiracy nutters that think we never went to the Moon, but the script is well done. I mean, all stories start with a crazy "what if" seed and then there is the actual writing. The writing was good. The seed in this case was that the Americans would hire Stanley Kubrick to make a secret film of a fake Moon landing in case the real one failed, all in 10 days. Yeah, right.

Bottom line: this movie teaches us that while the Americans were sending their kids to die in Vietnam, Brits were really cool and fun. The rest is history.
