I went to see it last night at Cineplex and thoroughly enjoyed it!
I think the main reason the film has been trashed is relative to the age groups that are going to see the movie...lets face it If you didn't grow up
in the space race...and just went to see it you'd probably find it hard going.
Imagine a 16-24 yr old going to see it?....then you'll probably understand as this is the generation that watches films like 'saw'..more gore and
extremes and no storyline.
To quote something I've already posted- someone asked (in this age group) that if all the shuttles landed on the moon they must have had similar
experience...er 'No the shuttles didn't go to the moon they went to fuel and work on the ISS and make repairs'
What's a LM (Lunar Module)?
Well how could 3 astronauts land on the moon and get back?
Er 'No two landed on the moon and the other one circled the moon in a rocket'
Oh so how did the two astronauts get back?
Er they rendevouzed with the rocket?
Well how did they do that?
So now you know why this movie isn't thrilling enough, or have any relevance to the audience it's trying to attract
As for lunartruth being 'down due to violation or whatever...it's probably a publicity stunt to get people to watch the movie.
I think the film should come with a warning about flash photography particularly on the big screen due to people having flash epilepsy.
I liked the combination of old and new footage plus the 'Blair Witch' approach . My only criticism at times was the quick panning..of the
cameras..which could be slightly annoying...However I tought it was agreat film, brave attempt but will prob only attract a certain age group or
interest from people who believe in extra terrestrials, UFO's etc...It aint gonna win any awards unfortunately.
