Comments: The music is exciting to get you thrilled to be watching this film. The presentation gets you involved so you feel as if this is happening now.
Walter Cronkite is shown in the actual news footage. This is a trip back into the past of a monumental moment in history. We get to follow along through actual news footage as the astronauts prepare for their mission. The whole country of America and even the world stopped to watch this. As Apollo XI takes flight the world watches.
There was a brief period where the command center on Earth was not receiving or sending anything from Apollo XI and the same with Apollo XI. The world breathed a sigh of relief as both started hearing and talking to each other.
Michael Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong were the three astronauts. As the two come in for a landing you watch with bated breath just hoping nothing goes wrong. Than Neil steps on the moon. The first man to set foot on the moon. It is an amazing thing. Even the President watches and congratulates them.
Then they must return home.
Can you just imagine going to the moon and back? To actually walk on the moon. Very few people have done so and it is an accomplishment of a lifetime.
Anyone interested in space, exploration, adventure, history will love watching this.
