    Superb documentary with stunning video quality

    This is a required purchase for any who love documentaries, and who love space exploration. The video quality is, well, astonishing. Right there with "Lawrence of Arabia" and "The Ten Commandments." The only flaw is a slight red push. The audio is clear, well-defined, strong with unexpected power during key moments. The colors are vibrant. Shot in 1969, but it looks like a window into yesterday. There were many films with mediocre video quality on the blu-ray release. This towers over them. If released on UHD, it could re-define that platform. Recommended with esteem and confidence. 98/100

    If you are even remotely interested in astronomy and space exploration, you owe it to yourself to watch this documentary. Newly released 65 mm film footage painstakingly rendered into digital format looks bright and clear as if made just yesterday not 50 years ago. Amazing that each intricate step of this Apollo mission to the moon was successfully completed and the astronauts returned home safely will fill you with hope and pride in what we can accomplish. Watch it and be happy.

    Are there ways you can inform an audience as to a subject in which they know the ending before they even see the movie? Try to imagine that they found many thousands of hours of 65 mm footage that was shot of many aspects of the mission. Then they used 8K and 16K sampling devices to scan these thousands of hours of footage. It is almost unbelievable how good 50 year old footage looks! There are many other reasons to see this, buy it, love it!

    This documentary is AWESOME! I was only 3 years old at the time of the original moon landing back in July of 69. I saw this 5 times when it was released in IMAX back earlier this year. To see what they did with the “new” found footage is nothing short of EXTRAORDINARY! To hear those Saturn V engines fire on my surround sound brings goosebumps to me every time!

    You must see this film! Director Todd Douglas creates an awesome documentary from a newly discovered treasure trove of 65mm film thats never been seen! That and 11,000 hours of audio recordings. All of this goes into a cinematic power house that tells the story of the July 20, 1969 landing of the Apollo 11 on the Moon. You really must see this film!

    This documentary gives you tons of images of what happened at the launch pad, at the control station, during the flight to moon and back, the actual moon landing. It's amazing all the technology and care that went into this project. Images of the project have been around for 50 years, but you'll see new ones in this film.

    This is one of the best documentary / movies about the Apollo 11 mission. Saw this on the IMAX and knew I would have to own it. My only complaint is in the movie it shows you how fast the spacecraft was moving and these numbers are way to small to read on the TV. So that is a bit of a let down.

    This documentary was made from original archival film footage, including some 70mm sources as well as 16mm and 35mm. There is no narration, you just see what happens as it happens. This is an excellent film and the detail is astounding from the 70mm stock. Highly recommended for spacebuffs or not

    The video quality is stunning. The 65mm video is super crisp and the colors pop. The pre-flight footage is especially stunning. The soundtrack is magnificent and adds a lot to the footage as it is shown on screen. A great addition to anyone's collection if you are a fan of the moon landings.

    This movie is put together in a wonderful way that takes me back to my childhood from all of the things I remember in following the space race to the moon. Great clips and footage of the real events that took place along with excellent explanation of the details of the mission.

    This is one of the finest movies that has been produced on Apollo 11. There is footage in the film that I have never seen and it has been enhanced to look even better than the original. Watch the launch footage. The film is great and besides which I am in it. Buy it!!

    This documentary is about man's first landing on the moon, and the first humans to walk on the moon. This is the real deal. Footage found at NASA turned into a goldmine for this movie. I guarantee you will watch it several times or more. It is a keeper for sure.

    I'm old enough to remember sitting in front of the TV watching the Apollo moon landings as a kid. Seeing it again in HD blew me away, the picture quality is amazing! My only complaint is that it's too short, would have loved to have seen more!

    Most of the NASA footage from the era people are familiar with is grainy and of generally poor quality. Some of the large format film scenes from Apollo 11 look like they were shot yesterday. This is truly an archival quality documentary. .

    This movie is fantastic. I was 12 during the mission and watching this movie is like living it all over again. The restored footage makes it seem like it's happening now. And it even has 10% more Apollo than Apollo 10.

    Any one that lived thru this era of space exploration will love this movie. The footage is incredible and shows a lot of behind the scene action that had never been seen. Great addition to your Video Library.

    This is some of the best restored video I’ve ever seen! I’ve always been excited by the Saturn V ever since I was a kid, but these first and second stage footages are AMAZING! And I have never seen these!

    This is all archival footage with no overdubbed narration. Excellent editing to put together the story of one of humankind's greatest achievements. Will be watching again on this 50th anniversary year.

    Really enjoyed the new wide format footage, if I didn't know this was newly found I would have thought the launch was animated. There is no narration, but it isn't needed.
