From dictionary.com, Apollo is defined as the ancient Greek and Roman god of light, healing, music, poetry, prophecy, and manly beauty. There's a running debate on this page about whether Moonshot's producers over-dramatized the history portrayed in the movie. I have some advice to offer to those who are not "doc" purists: this film is a "must see". If you've not already seen every other documentary and read every book on the Apollo program, and thus have your expectations already set, you'll find this an impressive, awe-inspiring story. The director captured the breathtaking trajectory of the U.S.'s space program in the 1960's. The film editing created a terrific interplay between actual footage and live action that I found disjointed in only one or two sequences. Most of us watch movies for the acting, naturally. Without careful casting and authentic roles, I see that the movie might have easily fallen flat. It doesn't, however: the casting is "spot on" and the actors' performances are simply outstanding. So much so that halfway through the movie, I found myself riveted to the dialogue. I agree with the reviewer who said he's very impressed by Daniel Lapaine as Neil Armstrong. Cerebral, soft spoken, and thoughtful, but always ready to take the logical course, and driven to succeed. To digress, I was trained as an engineer, and I suppose that may just make me a bit more understanding of the man. I was a boy, just four years old, on July 20, 1969, the day the Eagle landed on the moon. I certainly don't have a memory of this historic landing. However, I do remember watching the later Apollo missions on black and white TV, which my mother (a stay-at-home mom) had running all morning and afternoon while my brothers were at school. So, while watching Moonshot, I did appreciate the scenes in which the world watched the week's events and was visibly energized by what it witnessed. The crescendo-reaching performance for me, however, were the scenes when Armstrong and Aldrin first faced the lunar landscape, hearts pumping, in what must have been a mix of fear and mercurial anticipation, clearly realizing that they were the first humans ever to "lay eyes" on its beauty. A final thought: To this day I fear the music mostly goes unheralded, but I found it a deeply inspiring soundtrack that complemented the action well. In time it will become recognized by future viewers who share my deep appreciation for outstanding movie music.
