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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Realistic recreation of the events before take-off!
23 February 2000 | by Sundance98See all my reviews

Xander Berkeley did a great job on this one. For those of us who were there at the Cape during that time, it really brought back memories. No weak-kneed modern day politically correct representations. It was "macho" and on the mark. Anyone that hasn't seen Apollo 11 probably thinks it wouldn't be that exciting or touching - but it was and everyone should see it.
