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 »

Shocked
23 November 2005 | by matthew-g-russellSee all my reviews

This movie is shockingly short. Granted I did not check the run time before purchasing a ticket, but I expected the movie to be longer.

Also, despite excellent effects, amazing pictures (especially when viewed in a IMAX 3D), and excellent narration; the movie did not contain much information. The movie gives more of the feelings behind a journey to the moon, pointing out how something might have gone wrong, that it's a long journey, the people to take the journey were heroes, etc... No actual useful information. This disappointed me as I was expecting something educational.

One thing I the movie did provide was less popular comments from less known astronauts from the other Apollo missions.

Other than the short length and the lack of educational comment, it was enjoyable to watch. The visual effects are surprising and realistic (at times, because of the 3d effects you feel the sudden urge to dodge something or get out of the way of something coming at you)
