Synopsis


Apollo 18
NASA's canceled trip to the moon in the 1970s is the basis for this found-footage-style picture exploring the urban legend surrounding that mission -- what if Apollo 18 actually did occur and the proof of extraterrestrial life exists on film? Wanted's Timur Bekmambetov produces the film, with Spanish director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego taking on helming duties. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    "Found footage" that shouldn't have been

    It’s 1974 and the world has lost interest in lunar exploration. The government, however, still has plans for the moon. So they send Captain Ben Anderson (Warren Christie), Commander Nate Walker (Lloyd Owen), and Lieutenant Colonel John Grey (Ryan Robbins) to bring those plans to fruition. However, their attempts to do so are impeded by one terrifying unforeseen complication. They are not alone. The found-footage style film is not entirely flawed. There are those who liked The Blair Witch Project and saw it as genius. I wasn’t one of them and I haven’t met anyone who is, but I’m almost positive they exist. And if you’re someone who saw The Blair Witch Project and thought the only way to make it better would be to add aliens, have it take place 20 years earlier and on the moon, no doubt you’ll love this movie. I, on the other hand, saw it as flawed and boring from start to finish and will not be watching again on cable, home video or any other medium barring some sort of coercion. Say a gun to my head.

    Blair Whitch 101

    Wow! What a total disappointment. Like the previous review, Blair Witch came to mind. Total waste of my money on this movie. I actually bought th Blue Ray version and I might as well have bought a movie that was shot from someone's 8mm handheld. Blurry, grainy, regular format...etc. etc. Poor plot and poor script. I mean come on..What phrase are they using in the 70's? ."Roger That"? You gotta be kidding! Get your decade right Mr. director. "Rodger That" was never used back then. I can't believe they want us believe that any of the footage is even close to real.

    I was really looking forward to this movie. Missed it in the theater, I sure wish I hadn't. It would have saved me money to find out it stunk, before dropping dime for a Blu Ray. Across the board it stunk. Even the "aliens" stunk. Save yourself money and an hour and a half of your life you can't get back...pass on this.

    I love this movie! I'm a space nerd. This movie feels real, everything down to the quindar tones, the terminology, and the gravity is very accurate. Some people complain that it is to "Blair Witch Project"-ish, which may be true, nonetheless it is still entertaining.

    This movie is the best movie ever made in my opinion, how ever the 2 flaws were that 1 its shot in a security camera type way similar to cloverfield altho not skaky, and that you must really be interested in the subject of conspiracies/aliens 10/10 in my thoughts
