[i]There is also no reason to complain about all the technical mistakes. The Saturn 5 seems to reach orbit without dropping off any stages. In the movie the astronauts reach lunar orbit before attaching the LEM to the Command Module. The kids will just have to "unlearn" this stuff when they grow up: not a big deal, since they already have a lot of that to do anyway.
What is significant about this movie, and makes it a important part of the ongoing debate about the value of human spaceflight and the ongoing effort to get back to the Moon before 2020 (about the time the target audience for this film will be entering college), is that it exists at all. Someone in the film industry thought that the story of first Moon mission was attractive enough to children and their parents to invest real money into making this thing. At a time when fantasy, such as the Narnia movies, are capturing the public imagination and their dollars, the fact that a film about the very unfanciful Apollo program can be made at all is important.[/i]
