Wonderful images but . . .,
This review is from: For All Mankind [Masters of Cinema [DVD] (DVD)
As far as the images and film sequences are concerned, this is a wonderful DVD. There are a host of iconic scenes covering all aspects of the mission from launch, through the Lunar tranverses to the landing back on Earth.
The only thing that annoyed me watching this title was the editing. Depending on who well you know the Apollo story, you may notice a large number of cases where the editors have taken the soundtrack of what the astronauts said and placed it over another piece of film. This has been done time and again and it can be somewhat distracting if you have read enough about the missions to spot the differences.
On the plus side, there are a couple of extra features added to the DVD. There are clips of the launches of the first five man rated NASA rockets and an interview with Al Bean and his paintings. He shows a number of his Moon painting and tells the story behind the image.
Overall, great to watch but may annoy some Apollo "geeks"!
