Storyline

What if Apollo 11 never actually made it? What if, in reality, Stanley Kubrick secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the US administration? This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to swinging sixties London, where a stubborn CIA agent will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with a lousy manager of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time, in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.

Trivia

The general who briefs Kidman is made up to look like General Jack D. Ripper from Dr. Strangelove to fit in with the movie's Kubrick motif. See more »

Goofs

When Kidman is being given his initial brief, he is told that "In a few days' time we launch our 11th mission to the Moon". However Apollo 11 was not the 11th US Moon mission in that program, previously only Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 had gone to the Moon. Prior to that, the US had sent 6 Ranger lunar impact craft that were partly or fully successful, 5 Lunar Orbiter missions - all successful, and 7 Surveyor landers of which 5 landed successfully.

Quotes

Kidman: It sounds like a rather large operation. How are we going to keep this secret?
Colonel Dickford: We'll do what the Egyptians did.Bury the architects inside the pyramid.

Moonwalkers: an enjoyable flick.
17 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Looks like an American film but is not: although shot in English, is a French-Belgian production on the script of English screenwriter Dean Craig.

It's a funny and ironic film, celebrating the psychedelic atmosphere of the swinging London (we are in June '69). You won't really laugh but you will have a good time watching: who doesn't like to watch magic mushroom-eating guys playing the good ones?

Everybody acts sensationally and the characters are so good that you will easily imagine a sequel. One word about the cast: Ron Perlman and Rupert Grint steal the scene but males will surely also notice beautiful Belgian actress Erika Sainte, previously unknown to greater American and British audiences…
