This is a film I can watch repeatedly. Warm, gentle humour, a perfect soundtrack contemporary with the action and a great story with something for most people and suitable as a family film. There are a few fascinating true details about the moon landing that I didn't know and the risks that were being taken. Even though you know what happens, the acting is so good that you're on the edge of your seat during the landing itself.
On the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, this was what I watched, it brings home what a brave enterprise the whole thing was and gives it a human face. I've even bought extra copies to lend to friends, its such a lovely film that you want to "convert" others. Recommended.
