David Sington's glossy tribute to the Apollo space program mixes archival material and recent interviews with the astronauts to survey what still ranks as NASA's greatest achievement. Lamentably Sington blows through the program's early history to focus on the Apollo 11 mission, which might be understandable if the program's 14 years weren't so full of excitement. The astronaut interviews are fun and occasionally moving, but the real reason to see this is the remastered archival footage, some of it previously unscreened and all of it spectacular.
