Goofs

For the future scene at the end of the film we are told it takes place at "Aitken Basin - South Pole" and that it's at 16 48 S. Latitude. 16 48 south latitude is nowhere near the south pole. It's much closer to the lunar equator that to the lunar south pole. See more »

An amazing film!
19 October 2005 | by laughing_catSee all my reviews

Today I took my 3rd graders on a field trip to see this film. We were mesmerized! I know that the kids were mostly blown away by the great 3D effects, but that's OK. Hopefully they absorbed a little bit of the science that was discussed.

It is fantastic. People of all ages will enjoy it. I highly recommend it if you can find this film in your area.

Two things I liked: the way To Hanks included the "first quotes" of other moon walkers (since the only one we ever hear about is Neil Armstrong's.) I also liked the scenario of what "could have happened" if there was a glitch with the moon rover during the moon landings.

See it--you'll love it.
