About this movie

From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event 50 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.

Gripping documentary unspoiled by narration (other than that of on-scene newscasters from 1969), special effects, "creative license" or other nonsense. Apollo 11 tells the story of the individuals involved in man's greatest achievement, and their own perspectives as it happened. Neal, Buzz, and Mike's heartfelt "thank you" (shortly before reentry) to the thousands of individuals who made the mission possible still ring true - and this film is the highest tribute that can be offered to all of them - other than continuing their mission.

Great documentary. Love all the "haven't seen it but the landings are faked/didn't vaccinate my children they'll die before me/Trumps not racist you are/The earth is flat I've seen it but they saw it on the internet and I didn't so I'm wrong. Get a grip people. You're literally killing us as a species.

Easily the best documentary ever produced about the Moon Landing. It has so much footage I've never seen and I've pretty much seen every piece of previously released video. If you're going to buy/rent this and have a 4K UHD TV, you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not watching it in 4K.
