Man's landing on the moon was our greatest technological achievement. The Apollo 11 mission was truly the stuff of dreams. For the first time, our species walked on another celestial body. Even more remarkable was their ability to make it back. This is the story of the July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 moon landing. Drama with digitally remastered original footage.Written by
When this movie was first aired on the History Channel (US), the moment when the character of Neil Armstrong puts his foot on the moon was timed to within a minute of the 40th anniversary of Armstrong actually stepping on the moon. See more »
In new footage, shot for the movie in studio to represent the astronauts' activity on the moon, stars are visible in the black sky. While stars were visible in the sky to the astronauts during the real moon landing, they are not visible in any film the astronauts shot because the cameras' aperture had to be closed down to eliminate glare from the lunar surface. The stars were then too faint to register on the film. See more »
Very watchable low budget version
In 2019 comparisons will inevitably be drawn between this film and First Man. If this film was made with the budget of First Man it would be a winner. It was more watchable than First Man. Armstrong's character is far more rounded than the morose and withdrawn character in the other film. You can believe in him much more here, and that connects you and draws you into the film. There is a fair amount of stock Nasa footage used which interestingly they have managed to lipsynch to the Nasa audio. This is a much vaunted feature of the upcoming Apollo 11 documentary. What really lets this film down are the silly mistakes. If you are not a space buff you probably won't notice, but if you are - prepare to be frustrated! The floating space pen has already been mentioned in other reviews, but for me the incorrect wristwatches (which got a far amount of screen time) and footwear made me roll my eyes. The DVD can be picked up very cheaply online and if you're into this stuff it's definitely worth a loo.
