Storyline

Fearful that the Russians would continue their lead in the space race and be the first to put a man on the moon, NASA felt an enormous pressure to push the Apollo Program forward as quickly as possible, though they knew that pushing too hard could lead to the ultimate disaster. This film recreates the tensions that were felt not only by the three astronauts, Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, but also by their families and by the teams of technicians training to deal with anything that could go wrong.

A Very Good Film, Worth Watching
1 January 2005 | by dawson-michelleSee all my reviews

I liked this film, I liked the way it was shot - it's not that clear, but when the original footage is shown it all blends in well. there's not much footage with models/cgi and that is good, the film is not trying to beat 'Apollo 13' and I guess it was shot on a lower budget. The astronaut's wives are well portrayed, as are the crew them selves. It gives another slant to the Apollo 11 story. If you have seen Tom Hank's from 'Earth to the Moon', it is good to compare them. The music is good if you like 1960's music and I agree with the previous reviewer the end music is very good, it makes it it's own-film, it is not trying to be/beat 'Apollo 13' or 'Marroned' for that. I for one would add this to my collection of DVD's. Worth watching if you are a 'Space Fan'. (It was shown on Hallmark Channel 190 in the UK on 01:01:2005)
