[An] extraordinary documentary. [Full review in Spanish]

The base is understanding how the trip to the moon was accomplished, but the true success of this documentary is still creating an atmosphere of suspense surrounding this great feat even when we know what happens. [Full review in Spanish]

The biggest value of this documentary is precisely the new images it presents. [Full Review in Spanish]

Apollo 11... is quite simply an amazing film.

Clocking in at a tidy 90 minutes, laid out in ruthlessly linear fashion, the film plays like one deep breath nervously exhaled. It's also eye-wateringly beautiful to behold

Astonishing...the documentary footage, which alternates from the spaceship and the American audience...it just brought back what an unbelievably impressive achievement it was in 1969.

A stunning documentary, though what Miller delivers most spectacularly is tension. We know this chapter in the history of space exploration has a happy ending, yet this is still edge-of-your-seat level suspense.

Houston, we definitely don't have a problem. Fabulous.

The achievements of July 1969 may be familiar to one and all, but they have never been presented with such clarity or looked so epic.

That future's failure to show up has lent the adventures of Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins the feel of a time capsule, a one-shot wonder sealed off from the rub of history, a perfect evocation of a more heroic, ambitious time.

A celebration of human endeavour, and of a rare moment of global unity.

An awe-inspiring film that does full justice to the extraordinary technical achievement of the moon mission.

This astonishing assemblage of vintage footage, some never before seen, may be unspoilable (we know how it ends) but it's still hugely suspenseful, and beautifully immersive visually and emotionally.

The restoration is so beautifully done, if you didn't know better (back off landing deniers) you'd swear it had been remade.

Here, at last, 50 years later, arrives surely the definitive factual account, brilliantly distilled from hours of footage and audio archive of events both in space and on Earth, only recently unearthed from NASA's vaults.
June 27, 2019
With the 50th anniversary of the mission imminent, the film serves as both a glorious tribute to that moment and a positive, hope-filled reminder of the good that can be achieved even in times of great political turmoil.

Again one is struck by the homemade look of the lunar module, with landing gear that looks like it's been wrapped in tin foil, and the inhuman sang froid of Neil Armstrong, who seemed born for a task no human had ever attempted before.
June 27, 2019
The director avoids gimmicks or embellishment. Strapping three men to the top of a rocket and blasting them into space is, it turns out, sufficiently gripping on its own.
June 26, 2019
Sitting at a neat 93 minutes, its balance of wonder towards our scientific achievements, whilst maintaining a present tense format, leaves one feeling you have witnessed it all in a wondrous experience.
June 26, 2019
Miller's success is in letting the radiant images stand alone and unfiltered.
