★★★★ review by Dennis Reardon on Letterboxd
This was so interesting so many insights into what was happening during Apollo flights that I could never have imagined. Too many stories to introduce here, just trust me, this is a ride into the past that will capture your imagination.
I should also mention that I intend to watch this at least two more times since so much information is presented the likelihood I'll remember it all is near null.
★★★½ review by Stu Kirwan on Letterboxd
It's becoming increasingly more difficult to make a fresh and insightful documentary that looks at the Apollo program because there's so much out there that it feels as though there isn't much left to tell. There are a few nice tidbits and stories in here but the majority is stuff I've heard before so it doesn't really offer a wealth of new information to anyone that's seen a few documentaries on the matter.
The small amount of footage from modern day mission control, however, raises the thought of how good a documentary looking at the recent history and operations of NASA could be.

I watched this movie at the Houston Space Centre, which is probably the best place to watch this! This documentary did a very good job at taking you back in the past to mission control as history was being made.

Tough and competent.
