I had the pleasure of seeing this in theaters. An absolutely splendid doc that lifts its genre- no talking heads here. Superb remastered video and audio culminated in an educational and fully immersive experience of the Apollo 11 mission. A must see for all; should be required viewing in schools.

The footage is unbelievable... and not in a "the moon landing is a hoax" kind of way.

This was hard to watch because I kept tearing up! Even fifty years on, this
is an amazing event to watch. The documentary features new footage and there is no standard voice over-- the images and countdown provide all the narration necessary. I couldn't get over seeing the hundreds of staff looking at tiny screens with images that looked more Atari game than anything else.
And footage of people doing math calculations on paper--that's a novelty.
The courage and brilliance of all involved, especially the three who made this epic voyage, makes this a story to relive time and again.

Fantastic documentary. Shame it didn't come out earlier.

A solid, amazing documentary consisting of nothing but newly discovered footage and chronicles the day of the Apollo 11 launch, the days of the mission, and the astronauts' return trip.

Let me be clear, the restoration of the footage in this documentary is no less than a triumph. The footage looked AMAZING up on the big screen.

The documentary is understated in a way that invites viewers in, but the fact that it takes such a day-to-day look at the event solidly puts the viewers there in that time and place.
