Critic Reviews for For All Mankind
It could be argued that the Apollo missions were essentially a big, expensive photo opportunity for the propaganda machine of the Cold War, but Reinert's film serves to remind us that they also redefined who, where and why we are.
Apparently, grown men tend to act the same on the moon. One astronaut in mid-leap shouts "Ya-hoo!" If youre not smiling while you watch that, youve obviously never dreamed.
encapsulates with great power the wonderment of something that too many of us now take for granted
... not a documentary of an Apollo mission but the story man's odyssey to the moon...
If not the screen's ultimate portrait of space travel, For All Mankind remains a peerless planetarium show.
Audience Reviews for For All Mankind
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A important historical document.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.
Simply put, one of the greatest documentaries on one of the most exciting and interesting topics. Highly Recommended!
