Goofs

It would not have been possible for the Apollo spacecraft to land on the moon's south pole. Doing so would have required far more fuel, in order to move the vehicle into a polar orbit. The weight of that additional fuel would have required a rocket larger than the available Saturn 5 rocket. See more »

Really enjoyed this
6 September 2011 | by nej-2See all my reviews

I'd been looking forward to this film for months after seeing a poster for it. The concept of a secret 18th mission to the moon drew me in instantly. After hearing a few mutterings from critics though, I was a little worried it might not be quite the film I wanted it to be. However, after seeing it tonight I'm happy to report that it's just what I expected :)

I'm a fan of The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity and this film fits into that genre.

The special effects are brilliant. At no point did I believe they weren't on the moon. Which is daft, but honestly, they were great. The feeling of impending doom and isolation was quite palpable and I tell you this, I can't remember jumping back in my seat so much in ANY film before at certain bits!

All in all a good solid film.
