Editorial Reviews

Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 7, 1972, was the last manned mission to the moon. But two years later, in December of 1974, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it’s the real reason we’ve never gone back to the moon.

I'm no movie critic at all, don't get me wrong.

The problem comes in the Blair Witch Project way the film was shot.

It was the most boring story, horribly acted ,and cheaply done!

"Found footage" horror films are a dime a dozen these days, having started to wear out their welcome, from "The Blair Witch Project" to "Cloverfield" to "Paranormal Activity", one can't help but feel that "Apollo 18" falls into the trap of trying to ride on the coattails of those who came before, and at a time where the genre seems to be wearing itself thin. Thankfully however, "Apollo 18" manages to distinguish itself enough to stand on it's own legs, and deliver a satisfying experience.

"Apollo 18" follows the tale of the final, top-secret mission to the moon. Assembled from top-secret footage taken during the mission itself, we follow the three astronauts as they head to the moon to put up several audio recorders, so the good old US of A can get an edge on those pesky commies in Russia. However, shortly after landing, they make a shocking discovery and realize that their mission has become incredibly dangerous.

There's a lot that can't be said about "Apollo 18" without giving away some nice surprises, but I can say this: "Apollo 18" has the advantage of multiple camera angles and intimacy going for it. Unlike similar films, the action here is filmed from multiple angles (mounted cameras in the spaceship, hand held, cameras on suits, etc.), so that we constantly have new things to look at, rather then shaky footage shot from a single camera. I also really enjoyed the sense of loneliness that the movie creates: We never leave the three astronauts, and as the film goes on, the tension and dread really build, and culminates in a very memorable climax.

For all that it gets right, there are a few areas where "Apollo 18" stumbles: For one thing, it's not all that scary.

I watched this movie at the theater last night. I like science fiction movies and "found footage movies" a lot. This movie, given its alleged low budget, is really well made. It looks as if you were watching an authentic recording of a moon mission gone very wrong. As everyone at this point knows, these movie endings are never good for the characters involved, and anyone expecting otherwise should not even bother to watch them.
I give this movie five stars because I really inmersed myself in the plot. The dark, isiolated, barren moonscape is incredibly well made, as well as the spaceships visual details and sounds. The acting was excellent, and the moon creatures convincing.

Suppose, following the official final lunar mission of Apollo 17 in December 1972, that the once-aborted Apollo 18 mission had been taken over by the Pentagon and sent to the Moon on a highly secret mission? That's the premise behind the 2011 film APOLLO 18, a film that is not only a conspiracy tract, but also something of an outer-space shocker a la the 1979 blockbuster ALIEN.

The premise of this pseudo-documentary sci-fi enterprise is that, under a cloak of secrecy so great that apparently not even the same American media that uncovered the truth of Watergate knows about, the Department of Defense sent a three-man crew to the Moon on Apollo 18 in December 1974 on an errand that the crew clearly knew nothing about beforehand. Everything seems to go well at first; the two men (Warren Christie; Lloyd Owen) who land on the Moon in the lunar module "Liberty" make their landing as routine as anything we saw during the real Apollo program (with the exception, of course, of the Apollo 13 mission of 1970, which almost took a fatal turn). But once they get there, they discover what would appear to be an actual Russian lunar module a mere three miles from their landing site; and when they enter the module, they see the interior is in a shambles, with blood over the control panels, and a couple of very dead Russian cosmonauts. Even more, Own and Christie discover tracks made on the Moon's surface that are neither theirs nor those of the cosmonauts--indicating, of course, extra-terrestrial life (a premise that defies a lot of scientific credibility since, at least during the actual Apollo missions, no evidence of such a thing was ever found on the Moon's airless surface). But then the extra-terrestrial creatures, which look like mini-crabs, appear out of the lunar rocks, and then....

Apollo 18 delivers a nice low budget story. The look of the footage taken on the moon was very nicely handled. And it was no man-in-a-can picture...there's plenty of lunar landscape, a Lunar Rover, and more. Technically, very well done. The story itself was pretty intense. There was a single, nearly insurmountable problem: if the movie was constructed of "found footage" left behind by the guys on the last mission to the moon, who went to the moon to fetch the cameras? Even if there was a TV camera sending footage back to NASA on Earth in such a way no one else would pick it up, there would only be one feed....which fails to account for all the camera angles. (Most footage we have of the moon landings was taken by film cameras not TV cameras.) And for critical periods of the movie, they are out of touch with Earth anyway. That occured to me at the beginning, and the problem never went away, even when the credits rolled. If you can get past that, it's an excellent nail-biter.
