    It was great to watch a documentary about the moon landing in an epic IMAX format. As a millennial I always took the moon landing for granted, even once believed it was fake. This film allowed me a glimpse into the magic and the logistical magnitude of this world changing cultural event, all wrapped in an explosive IMAX experience.

    At times, a thrilling visual treat, especially the footage that must have been archival 35mm converted IMAX footage. I'm old enough to have watched live coverage on television. I was almost moved to tears reliving the experience.

    What a treasure! A perfect and definitive encapsulation of this historic event that will undoubtedly serve as an educational tool from this point forward. The footage on the ground is absolutely stunning and I'm so upset that I missed seeing this in IMAX.

    I thought it was an interesting look at the space program in the early 70's and how it captured the world to get to the moon and back along with the men & women who made it possible.

    Most historical documentaries seek to provide as much context as possible, to create an authoritative retrospective that takes into account content that no one individual at the actual time of the events in question would have in full measure - think the carefully constructed narration and varied viewpoints of Ken Burns. What Apollo 11 does instead, is to transport its viewers back to the event itself, to recreate the feelings of wonder, excitement, and stress that those involved in the Apollo 11 project and the global audience themselves felt in the heat of the moment, taking the extraordinary step of utilizing entirely period footage and dialogue, only adding in soundtrack accompaniment in sparing moments. What results is a highly entertaining and transformative rendition of one of the most remarkable events in human history, and an entirely unique take on modern documentary film. (4/5)

    Original footage of the moon mission has been put together in this documentary movie, to show the moon landing mission with the original dialogues (only in english) and technical data about the speeds and position of the spacecraft.

    It's good but a bit stretched out in places. I liked In the Shadow of The Moon better.

    Documentário com muitos detalhes técnicos e imagens inéditas (ao menos para o grande público) de um dos maiores feitos da humanidade.

    I was left speechless after this, and not many films have been able to do that.
