Moonshot: One for the ages...
Beginning at almost the beginning, Moonshot follows the three men who would eventually come together on the most remarkable journey in history. The actors cast in the roles of Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins clearly portray the personalities, mannerisms, and appearance of the astronauts, and the production values of the entire movie almost achieve documentary-like quality, with the exception of the pressure suits worn during the launch and lunar scenes. Those were pretty bad copies, done much better in Ron Howard's 1995 "Apollo 13".
The conflicts between the men, the minor and sometimes major clashes that are part and parcel of such a monumental undertaking are well portrayed, with the exception of making Aldrin look a little too whiny. Armstrong's sometimes distant and detached mannerisms and the blank look that he tended to give when faced with something he would rather not address, capture the man quite well. Collins, on the other hand, sometimes appeared naive and overwhelmed, a far cry from the sophisticated, well-read, and worldly man that he really was.
All in all, Moonshot was excellently done, and a must-see for anyone who is intrigued by the history of the Apollo program. 4 Stars out of 5.
