Officially, Apollo 17, launched December 17th, 1972, was the last manned mission to the moon. But a year later, in December of 1973, two American astronauts were sent on a secret mission to the moon funded by the US Department of Defense. What you are about to see is the actual footage which the astronauts captured on that mission. While NASA denies its authenticity, others say it's the real reason we've never gone back to the moon.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Accomplishes something the world wasn't really crying out for: it recreates the tedium of watching the later Apollo missions.Mike Hale, New York Times, 09.06.2011
Apollo 18 fails to stay with you because, like the cratered satellite on which it's set, it has no atmosphere.Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly, 09.02.2011
Despite stretches of skillfully sustained suspense, Apollo 18 ultimately comes across as little more than a modestly clever stunt.Joe Leydon, Variety, 09.06.2011
The film takes a startlingly long time to rev up, and even at less than 90 minutes feels thin and at moments like it is playing for time.Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, 09.04.2011
