Goofs

In the surface emergency sequence, when one astronaut's portable life support system fails, he activates his OPS (Oxygen Purge System), i.e., emergency oxygen supply. But he fails to open the purge valve that lets the oxygen flow through and out of his suit. The valve is unlocked by pulling a pin attached to the red ball ("red apple") hanging from the lower right front of the suit. See more »

Quotes

Neil Armstrong: Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand.

A mild disappointment
1 October 2005 | by Josh4981See all my reviews

I went to see DESOLATION this afternoon with the hope of it delivering on the hype: namely, a virtual walk on the moon.

Well...it does deliver that...but in frustrating snippets.

After all, with only 40 min of film time (for $10.50), I was really hoping for an immersion experience, start to finish. Instead...the actual scenes devoted to 3-D moonscape are rarely longer than 10 seconds each, interspersed with 10 MINUTES of inane filler material...like cute school kids trying to remember the names of the Apollo astronauts. Sheesh...very much 'spell breaking'.

So...you do come away with a few shots to remember. But a virtual 'experience' of being on the surface of the moon?? Not really. More like an MTV experience of being on the moon, for the attention span challenged.
