    Excellent review Robert. I was 15 when Apollo 11 was launched. The astronauts were my heros growing up. Had their pictures plastered all over my bedroom walls. Probably the main reason I later became an Air Force pilot. I also enjoyed the movie. It didn’t provide a lot of detail, but I saw some scenes I have never seen before, and as someone who has studied the Apollo missions exhaustively…I thought I’ve seen everything. I think for younger people who weren’t around back then, this should be a must see

    I was a couple years younger than Robert when I gathered with my family around the TV to watch Apollo 11 touch down on the moon. It was an amazing sight and this film brought all those memories back, and then some. I agree: check this one out on a big screen if at all possible. I caught it Anderson and I was the only one in the theater. Felt like a private screening 😉 I loved the pacing, the research involved and the way the director put it in context by including plenty of footage of the non-NASA folks who followed along. Lot of short-sleeve shirts, skinny ties and EVERYBODY smoked back then! Thanks for the review, young Burke
