Storyline

Fearful that the Russians would continue their lead in the space race and be the first to put a man on the moon, NASA felt an enormous pressure to push the Apollo Program forward as quickly as possible, though they knew that pushing too hard could lead to the ultimate disaster. This film recreates the tensions that were felt not only by the three astronauts, Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, but also by their families and by the teams of technicians training to deal with anything that could go wrong.

a fantastic re-enactment
26 January 2005 | by schnuzSee all my reviews

I watched this movie when it first came out. I was very pleasantly surprised by the movie and thought it was quite excellent ! The casting was well done and the characters were totally believable. There was a fantastic blend of period music and actual film footage inter spliced. You could not help but be riveted to your chair feeling just like it was happening the first time. But then, I *did* see it happen the first time so that drove the movie home even more. The documentaries on the event are great, but this movie flows to more of the human side of how it all came together. Fascinating, entertaining, factual and a good addition to your collection. Enjoy !
