Synopsis

From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA's most celebrated mission - the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.

  • 5 stars "The production of this documentary was amazing. They used all the top of the line equipment to upscale the original 1969 footage that makes it look like it's today. Everything they show from behind scenes footage and footage that aired on network television at that time is shown in a breathtaking way that hasn't ever been shown in that way. You are shown everything so up close and it all looks so huge it's like you were there. It's obviously been made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moonlanding and was released right on time as well. They do there absolute best to try to prove all the doubters wrong that they indeed went to the moon and man do they ever do a great job showing you what appears to be there ship circling the moon and it looks so real as well as showing the astronauts in the ship floating, eating, and shaving. However as great of a job they did cleaning up questionable footage for example the old original footage that was shown where the astronauts are supposed to be showing the earth through the window of the space craft and you see this hand come out of nowhere covering the earth ans you see this light that many skeptics have accused of being a film studio light as well as them trying use a reflection light to make it look like they further from the earth than they actually were was all cleaned up in this documentary. You don't see any of those lights or the hand that appears to be using a reflecter."
