In space, no one can hear you yawn....

...and I hope the people next to me in the cinema couldn't hear me yawning, which I started doing after about half-way.

These 'found footage' movies have varied over the years, since The Blair Witch Project kicked it all off. I had mixed feelings about that, but overall I felt it was an effective chiller: what's NOT seen is often so much scarier. Cloverfield, for me, remains at the top of the list, while the PA films are way down.

Apollo 18 isn't far from the bottom, either. The premise was intriguing, and I genuinely expected some sort of development in the genre - something like a cross between Blair Witch and Alien. What I got was 90 minutes of predictability and disappointment. The sense of isolation and claustrophobia was well done, but little else. I felt some sense of a tension build-up for perhaps a half-hour - but then it dissipated once the nature of the 'horror' became apparent.

I came away feeling that here was a great opportunity missed. It's worth seeing for the technical excellence and attention to detail. Just don't expect to see anything new - or anything that'll frighten the pants off you.

Low budget space

Allegedly these are the 'lost footage' of the American astronauts on the last manned moon mission, Apollo 18. It addresses a somewhat far-fetched conspiracy theory, but not totally impossible or improbable. Although the film is short (an hour and half), it is slow, as it is about space exploration. At the end a question arises: how was that footage recovered when everything points to it being destroyed as shown in the last scene with the collision of the lunar modules? The premise is not bad, but due to the so far-fetched theory, its slowness and the last plot hole I cannot give more than 3/10. I'm also of the opinion that this film would be better achieved if instead of 'found footage' it had used a more conventional '2001 Space Odyssey' technique, since it is space exploration. I understand it's a low budget movie but even so the image is very bad and it's poorly edited and it's slow and it gets tiring.

Most boring movie I've seen

From the first minute this is just boring nonsense. It is another found footage film, similar to the ones where a group of friends go on a trip and something unexpected happens. Well, in this case they happen to go to the moon... Everything is cheap and cheesy, the member who is really brave and starts exploring the area risking his life, the distortion effects, the editing and I could go on and on.

The moon set was good, it looked real. Sadly, they wasted it with a very bad and boring film.
