Irritating
27 July 2019 | by antimatter33See all my reviews

Bad music, tendentious narration, false drama that hides the real dramas, not a good effort. NASA was awful at self-promotion. The worst part of this film is how uncool it is - how wrong it gets the cultural times - like those very unhip adults who tried to sport the latest youth fashions in the 1970s. Maybe you should watch this film while sitting in a Naugahyde chair in a room with orange shag carpeting, sipping a glass of iced Dubonnais.

Thankfully, a few modern films do a far better job, including the wonderful "Chasing the Moon" and "Apollo 11", just released this year.
