With no narration and just the words of the astronauts and the people at Mission Control to guide us, I was on the edge of my seat watching velocity numbers increase and decrease accompanied by a pulsating music score.

When you combine all of these elements, it makes for outright compelling viewing.

Exciting material, dull presentation .

Up there with them now is 2019's Apollo 11, an exciting new film from Todd Douglas Miller that is begging for you to see it on the biggest screen possible.

With the clear image and modern soundtrack, it is a thrilling experience to see on the big screen.

Amazing footage, but much of the movie we found too slow .

Apollo 11 is a fantastic example of making an engaging documentary while primarily using archive footage.

And it's fascinating.

Breathtaking images and no annoying commentary.

"Apollo 11": Stunning Tribute to one of America's most Glorious Moments .

After recently re-watching Apollo 13 and marveling at how accurate the special effects looked, to see the real deal is breathtaking.

The film is loaded with breathtaking never before seen footage.

SO boring .

It's a captivating production that blends restored multi-sourced archival footage and audio into a gripping documentary that brings the viewer back to the first moon landing in 1969.

The producers blend all that content with extraordinary care so the on screen presentation is well layered fully engrossing.

This is little more than propaganda.

For someone who wasn't alive to witness this when it happened, this is an astonishingly well put-together collection of archival footage and sound clips that results in a seamlessly breathtaking recreation of the Apollo 11 mission.

Bored to death!

As in any NASA documentary-it cannot be left out- is the dance, perfectly choreographed, in the fluorescently-lit stage of the control rooms, at Houston and Kennedy, of man after man, in rapid succession, giving the thrilling order: "Go.

Fascinating styles and substance comprise this glimpse of 1969 humanity in its purest, unaffected form: Americans and tourists and their children elated, in a dignified way, to watch history in the making.

The editing and added graphics help with keeping the footage engaging.

This also makes for an adrenaline pumping sequence with the long buildup to the launch.

Absolutely Breathtaking.

"Apollo 11" is a start to finish riveting documentary of the first manned mission to the moon.

The fact that this film is comprised of all archival footage and sound is stunning.

's was entertaining enough.

Quiet, absorbing .

You know they make it but the tension was intense.

Kind of boring in the middle.

The film was boring that I ended up using the length of the film as a timer for my nap
