Trivia

Some of the voices heard in the film are actual recordings from the space program. For example, when Apollo 11 lands on the moon, the reply from Houston is the original. It's the voice of astronaut Charles Duke, who had the job of communicating with Apollo 11 during the landing. Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) says "Houston, Tranquility Base here, the Eagle Has Landed", then Charlie Duke says "Roger, Tranquility, we copy you on the ground. You've got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We're breathing again. Thanks a lot." See more »

Goofs

The interiors of the various spacecraft are shown as slightly grubby, with the appearance of grime and fingerprints. Actual spacecraft are kept scrupulously clean to reduce the possibility off floating debris causing an equipment failure. See more »

Quotes

Deke Slayton: Jan, you have to trust us. We've got this under control.
Janet Armstrong: No, you don't. All these protocols and procedures to make it seem like you have it under control. But you're a bunch of boys making models out of balsa wood! You don't have anything under control!

The Wrong Stuff
12 October 2018 | by aylwardpaulSee all my reviews

Boring and self-important. The photography of nearly all action scenes is a real disappointment. The film misses way too many opportunities to tell what should be an enthralling story. You are better served watching The Right Stuff, The Martian, or Apollo 13.
