Never mind all the rest, this is the best of the bunch!
28 July 2019 | by sjmd1156-1See all my reviews

I don't often come across something that really stands out, but this is so good. I have seen the new Apollo 11 footage that has been restored for the Apollo 11 film due to come out in the UK on blu ray, it's already out in the states. It's good, and it's great to see that they have matched up audio to film footage not seen before. The launch was extra special and I'm really looking forward to the blu ray to blast my ears out! Now then, this having watched both is even better than the Apollo 11 film on so many levels. The amount of unseen footage is stunning, I say again...stunning. I also own the spacecraft film version of Apollo 11 material, but even that does not compare to this. It's like someone has taken the best bits ever filmed, and added a score and voice which elevates the whole Apollo 11 experience way beyond what I saw when I was a kid. If you have never seen the Apollo 11 footage because you were too young at the time and you have recently become curious then this is also for you. You will come away with such a proud feeling of belonging to the human race. I'm a Brit but I'm so proud of what you Yanks did, I just sometimes wish I was American.
