"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.

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

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

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.

This is little more than propaganda.

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

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.

Absolutely Breathtaking.

Breathtaking images and no annoying commentary.

You know they make it but the tension was intense.

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

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.

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.
