Storyline

Mike Goldwing, a plucky, determined 12-year old boy, is the son and grandson of NASA astronauts. His grandfather Frank, a once revered, but now forgotten retired astronaut, lives his days isolated from his family after missing out on his big chance to fly to the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as a part of the Apollo XI mission. When an eccentric billionaire sets an evil plan to fly to the moon, steal the moon's vast mineral resources, and destroy the American flag planted by the Apollo XI team, Mike embarks on a magnificent adventure as a stowaway on the space shuttle. Accompanied by his grandfather, best friends Amy and Marty, and a clever chameleon, Mike blasts off to the moon to capture the flag and reunite his family.

almost good non-Hollywood animation
18 October 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Billionaire energy magnate Richard Carson III claims that the moon landings were faked. He also claims that NASA rejected his father and vows to be the real first man on the moon. In truth, he's trying to mine Helium-3 on the moon which could be the next great power source and super weapon. The American President decides to dust off an old museum 40 year old Saturn rocket. Mike Goldwing is a wind boarding kid with his friends Amy and techie Marty who has Igor the lizard. His father is picked to be the astronaut for the moon mission. His former astronaut grandfather Frank reluctantly joins all the old crews who are the only experts left in the old rocket. Frank has gone into retirement isolation and estranged from his family ever since he was left off the last moon launch. Mike works to close the family rift and end the family curse by sneaking onto the NASA launch. Only Carson had sent a saboteur.

This is a Spanish animated movie. The animation is good but not at the best Hollywood levels. It's better than TV but not the best of theatrical fare. The story has some positives. The characters are good and I like the kids. The lizard in a spacesuit is stupid. The premise itself has potential but some of it is stupid. An accidental launch is reminiscent of an 80's kids movie. It doesn't make much sense that the kids would break into NASA anyways. The other big noticeable difference is the lack of celebrities doing the voice-work. The modern animated movie needs the celebrities for promotion. It's probably money well spend and this movie fails to do that.
