Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 24 ratings.
This movie captures a vision of space travel that comes very close to what actually happened nearly 50 years later. Their take on what space travel could be like is amazing. You will be stunned with how much they got right.
Of course, not everything is right; the moon doesn't have a breathable atmosphere. But I can't blame them for not knowing what the moon was really like, or that there is no chance of ever finding gold there. They had to create some things just to advance the plot.
This is not some bizarre or fanciful look at space travel; it was a very well thought out projection of how humans could travel through space. So take the leap; see how close they came. Challenge yourself to find the right and the wrong in this movie.
