I just finished watching Apollo 18 on Netflix while doing some research. I’m glad I had the research to keep my mind occupied because I would have been bored out of my skull otherwise.
Extremely predictable story, poor execution, and a bad imitation of “The Blair Witch Project” style of “found footage” camera shots.
Anyone who has even the smallest knowledge of America’s space program knows that the last mission to the moon was Apollo 17. But, according to this movie, that’s only the official made-for-the-masses version of history.
Apollo 18’s movie tagline is “There’s a reason we’ve never gone back to the moon” , but I say the official tagline of this movie should be “There’s a reason to never watch this drivel.”
That’s an hour and a half of my life I’ll never get back.
