Better then I had expected
on April 20, 2012
The reviews for this movie had been pretty poor, though their official website had some fairly interesting looking trailers to add to the mix. I rather enjoyed the style and execution and found it consistent throughout. So if you do not enjoy vintage NASA footage missions, you'll quickly get annoyed and move onto better movies.
One commented on a plot hole about how the footage got leaked considering the storyline does not readily make that valid. At the end of the movie, they show a link to a website called Lunar Truth [...] which is an offshoot of the movie portraying consipracy theories about the Moon missions, aliens and so forth. They make a mention about an intelligence modification in the fitted cameras that were not visible to operators and required maintenance by specially trained pers. It seemed to imply that it allowed remote monitoring of footage.
This provided site and movie are linked, they even have this fake terminal server that allows you to see leaked intelligence photos from a government server. Hence this movie makes strong attempts at getting seen as something official and not fiction. That is, until you hit the standard disclaimer at the end of the credits. In the end, its entertaining to play along and immerse yourself in this conspiracy.
