I enjoyed this movie. It had a sense of isolation and the Russian landing craft was most certainly not something you would want to spend five minutes in. Others have compared it to Blair Witch / Cloverfield and I guess it does owe a gratitude of thanks to these movies but it is a much more polished version of the puke-inducing camera work and hysterical screaming of those offerings. Take it for what it is a movie, not a documentary on the end of the moon missions.

It's a bad sign when the idea behind the movie is the best part of the entire thing. It's an interesting notion why we never returned to the moon. Apollo 18 attempts to explains it and utterly fails, it's kind of ridiculous and is one of the worst found footage examples out there. Make up your own reason - it's bound to be better than this movie.

"Apollo 18" by Yojimbo

During the final NASA mission to the moon, the astronauts find an abandoned Soviet lander and begin to suspect that they are not alone. It's very safe to say that I am not a fan of the "found footage" genre, but I am a fan of the old NASA space missions and the intriguing trailer tempted me to give Apollo 18 a try. Because of the nature of the way the space missions were documented the faux documentary style actually feels a lot more genuine than most examples and the visual effects recreating the classic 60s space technology design gives the film a nice feeling of authenticity. The problem with Apollo 18 is, unsurprisingly, that it is a found footage movie. This means that it is poorly paced, badly edited and has little characterisation or plot for that matter. Not to mention t...

Shakey Mystery

‘Apollo 18’ probably would have been a great move, had it not been preceded by the likes of ‘The Blair Witch Project’ or ‘Cloverfield’. Yeah, unfortunately it’s one of those films that look like some of your parents’ old home movies. While the novelty of the first- person cinema vérité style of filming has worn off a bit, it truly serves ‘Apollo 18’ well. I’ve heard from more than a few filmgoers that say they simply can’t stand all that jerky hand-held camera video, so this type of movie is probably a non-starter for those folks. Which is too bad, because in this case, the format fits the concept behind the film very well and it truly does have an early 70’s period look and feel.

The film is presented in the guise of secretly obtained video ‘evidence’ of a covert space mission. The pr...

Such potential....

Well, here’s some good news for what I would imagine is a small demographic of people: If you’ve been thinking to yourself “You know, they just don’t make enough ‘conspiracy theory/Blair Witch Project/aliens that look like rocks and want to kill us’ movies that are set in SPACE!”---get ready to rejoice. Hollywood has managed to dredge up this piece of work for you.

The Good: Allow me to get right to the point here, because I don’t believe in putting a skirt on a skunk —the only good part of this movie is that it had POTENTIAL to be good.
The underlying premise of this film is that the Apollo 18 mission to the moon that was officially cancelled, was, in fact, actually launched secretly in December 1974, and never returned. It sounds promising, but the entire movie is one tedious...
