Trivia

The team that put together this documentary used the work that Ben Feist did when he increased the quality of 11,000 hours of digitized audio recordings of taken during the Apollo 11 launch, according to an article in the New York Times on March 8, 2019. Feist also detailed the recordings by minute and second, making it easier for the documentary team to sync up audio and video sequences. See more »

Goofs

When the returning Apollo 11 blasts away from moon orbit, there is a dual visual display showing elapsed rocket burn time and spacecraft speed. The speed rapidly increases to just over 5500 mph during the rocket burn, and then the rocket cuts off. But the speed continues to increase for a few more moments. In reality, the speed would have stopped increasing the instant the rocket cut off. This is not an error as the residual bleed of the engine slowly being shut off will result in a slight continuation of acceleration. See more »

I could not ask for a better movie than Apollo 11
12 March 2019 | by marc-atkinson1961See all my reviews

Whenever a NASA / space movie comes around, I usually give it the side-eye. We all know the story (but we really don't) about the complexities , risks, and triumphs. We all know who Tom Hanks is Apollo 13, Ed Harris is in the Right Stuff, and who Ryan Gosling tried to be (and failed miserably) is in First Man.

But this movie is fantastic, because there are no actors, no narration, and most refreshing of all: no political commentary jammed down our throats.

The movie opens with this menacing crunching and squeaking sound----like tank tracks. So, we all know what that is.....the Crawler: The ultimate slow, low-tech machine transporting the very front edge of engineering marvel.

The liftoff sequence had me riveted, as though not only was this the first time I was seeing it, but that I was there.

The cast is NASA, the stars are the engineers, and I have to thank Statement films, Douglas Todd Miller, and even CNN (ugh).

This is the best movie I've seen in years. Don't miss it. It has to be seen in the theater.
