The Apollo missions were one of the most important events of the 20th Century. This is not your typical documentary, and it is a necessary one to watch if you're interested in the Apollo missions. This is a near flawless attempt at telling the complete story of the Moon Landings. I say that this is a different documentary because instead of featuring interviews, it is narrated by the astronauts who participated in the missions. The film is terrific and engaging, but it does leave a lot to be desired, mainly due in part to its short run time. For a subject such as this one, a more in depth documentary should have been made. In other words, a two hour film would have been enough. For All Mankind is nonetheless a worthwhile film to watch and it's quite spectacular in terms of footage and narrated accounts of the astronauts who were there. This is an important documentary and you get to witness a part of history as we revisit this historical mission. Although not perfect, For All Mankind is a near perfect attempt at crafting a documentary on these missions that changed the face of humanity forever. Beautifully shot and narrated, this is an insightful documentary that is only limited by a short run time. I really loved the film, and it is a worthwhile viewing for viewers interested in the missions to the moon. This is nonetheless one of the best documentaries that I have seen and it is a fine document recounting this mission, and it is a delight from start to finish. With beautiful imagery, For All Mankind is a fine and near perfect film that should delight viewers of all ages.
A important historical document. Some of the most amazing images ever shot.
For All Mankind is a breath-taking documentary that combines footage from Apollo missions 8 through 17 and along with narration by the astronauts themselves, takes us on a journey to the moon and back again. Simultaneously beautiful, mind-blowing and terrifying, it thoroughly documents the sheer amazement of man's greatest accomplishment. The Space Program as a billion dollar art project, and well worth every penny. We are placed in the space suit, we are seeing the earth from Neil Armstrong's eyes. I don't think there's ever been a documentary quite like this one. The Brian Eno soundtrack seems a perfect marriage to the footage. The whole project in fact, creates a mood and accomplishes exactly what it set out to do. A film that makes me proud to be an earthling.
