    • Excerpt: A well-done documentary about the American space mission that made astronaut Neil Armstrong the first human on the moon.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Miller has used this pristine, richly colored footage wisely, letting it speak for itself. There is no narration. There are no talking heads. There is just a sterling, 93 minute recreation of one of mankind’s most miraculous technological feats…
  • [New] | Glenn Dunks @ The Film Experience
    • Excerpt: It’s amazing to think that there can still be so much previously unseen footage from the biggest television event in history, and yet here we are at the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with a bus-load of new documentaries claiming new takes, new interviews and, yes, new footage.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: This astonishing assemblage of vintage footage, some never before seen, may be unspoilable (we know how it ends) but it’s still hugely suspenseful, and beautifully immersive visually and emotionally.
  • Jared Mobarak @
    • Excerpt: You really do have to see it to believe it […] because even those who watched on TV in 1969 have never seen it like this.
  • Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Apollo 11 shows a time that may be rooted in Americana but still allows for a scenario that can be viewed by all as a testament of what innovation, ingenuity, and intelligence can accomplish.
  • Don Shanahan @ Every Movie Has a Lesson
    • Excerpt: With honor, the documentary team led by director/producer/editor Todd Douglas Miller, have now echoed that monumental achievement with an artistic one of their own.
