Trivia

(at around 52 mins) As Cdr. Walker's mental condition worsens, he mutters "Fate has ordained the men who went to the Moon to explore in peace remain on the Moon to rest in peace." This line paraphrases the beginning of a contingency speech, drafted by speech writer William Safire in a memo entitled "In Event of Moon Disaster," which was intended to be delivered by President Richard Nixon in the event that the Apollo 11 astronauts were stranded on the lunar surface without hope of rescue.

Goofs

Work on the Soviet Lunar L3 program was cancelled late in 1974. The LK ('Lunniy korabl' - lunar craft) was not revealed to the west until much later. Thus, the Apollo 18 crew would have had no knowledge of this vehicle (i.e. referring to it as the "LK"). See more »

Quotes

Nate: I'm getting worse. Ben... you gotta leave me here.
Ben Anderson: No.
[pause, fiddling with landing module's controls]
Ben Anderson: No one's leaving anyone.
Nate: You'll have to.
Ben Anderson: We are not dying up here.

Lame Movie
9 December 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the early 70's, Commander Nathan Walker (Lloyd Owen), Captain Ben Anderson (Warren Christie) and Lieutenant Colonel John Grey (Ryan Robbins) are assigned in a secret mission to the Moon to protect the USA from USSR using detectors. Nathan and Ben land on the Moon in the Liberty module while John stays in orbit in the module Freedom. They collect rock samples and bring them to the Liberty. They also find footprints and the body of a Soviet cosmonaut on the Moon. Soon they hear weird noises and they find that they are not alone in the satellite.

"Apollo 18" is a lame movie that uses the exhausted formula of finding footage and filmed in the standard of "The Blair Witch Project". The result is a boring movie with awful footages and edition. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Apollo 18"
