Editorial Reviews

Relive the breathtaking story of Apollo 11 and the first manned landing on the Moon as HISTORYTM takes viewers aboard the rocket and on its eight-day round trip to outer space for a close-up look at one of the most stunning and courageous personal and technological achievements of man. Interlaced with original NASA footage transferred to high definition, Moonshot covers the crew s earliest days at NASA to the moment when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin step on the Moon. From home life and families, to the argument over who would be the first to walk on the lunar surface, this is the remarkable story of one of the most chronicled events in history. Using a script based on transcripts from the mission, contemporary documents, books and interviews, Moonshot incorporates news footage from around the world, including that of the iconic CBS anchor Walter Cronkite. Together, the drama and original material present a vivid yet intimate glimpse at one of the defining moments of modern history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Documentary with Alan Shepard and Deke Slayton January 2, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This wasn't what I expected.

There is a documentary with the same name, based on the book by astronauts Alan Shepard and Deke Slayton. The cover art is almost identical, too. The documentary is available here in VHS.

This disc is a dramatization of the Apollo 11 mission done for the History Channel. It mixes in a good bit of actual hi-def footage from NASA. The result looks great. It's mostly entertaining, and fairly informative. You should take some of the events shown with a grain of salt, due to filmmakers' continual tendency to try to crank up the drama -- in particular, you might want to look at a map of the moon, and at footage of the actual descent and landing of Apollo 11 -- but this film seems to stay a lot closer to reality than Hollywood's "Apollo 13" did.

The product description says both "widescreen" and "1.33:1". The program is actually widescreen, 1.85:1.

4.0 out of 5 stars The human side of Apollo 11 September 7, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a well-acted film about one of the most historic events in western civilization. I am old enough to have actually watched on television as astronaut Neil Armstrong came down the ladder of the lunar module Eagle and put his boot on the surface of the Moon. Perhaps for that reason I was intrigued about this film. I had seen From the Earth to the Moon and thought it well done. This film is in that genre. The disc is available in BluRay and was available at a great price.

The producers paid particular attention to detail with respect to the period of time--the late 1960s. The actor for Armstrong and Aldrin are close in appearance physically which makes it more believable. The documentaries put the astronauts at a distance, but films like this show they had lives, wives and children, and rivalries with each other.

Buzz Aldrin appears in the beginning and end of the film as a tacit endorsement of the film and its accuracy. It has always amazed me that Aldrin never seems to age, while, as I write this, his former Commander on the mission of Apollo 11 just recently passed away.

I would recommend the purchase of this film to see the human side of the times. I think it was well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the collection September 18, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Big fan of the 60s NASA space program. Had not come across this previously, so based on the strength of the recommendations, I purchased it.

Enjoyable movie. I especially liked the respect given to the technology and look of the period that sometimes Hollywood tends to miss or simply get wrong. Not the best on the topic, but certainly far from the worst and worth the purchase if you are a fan of the era. I would consider it a step up from Apollo 13 in terms of sticking with accuracy over dramatic license.

Who knew Mike Collins would becoma a zombie hunter.

I've seen this movie several times, so I was glad to see it on Blu-ray. It is a great movie about the Apollo mission.
