Apollo 18 is the latest Hollywood attempt at a truth telling documentary style film. The official description of the film reads: Decades-old found footage from NASA’s abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two (it’s actually three) American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon (Source).
Apollo 18 was just OK. There’s not much to say about it from my point of view. I knew going in that it was not real NASA footage, so I was just waiting to see the creature(s) that take out the astronauts and prevent them from returning to earth. I must say that the creatures are nothing like I expected and that was the most entertaining thing about this film. Other than that, wait to rent this one. You aren’t missing much.
