Goofs

For the future scene at the end of the film we are told it takes place at "Aitken Basin - South Pole" and that it's at 16 48 S. Latitude. 16 48 south latitude is nowhere near the south pole. It's much closer to the lunar equator that to the lunar south pole. See more »

Exploring the Apollo missions
20 February 2014 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This documentary film tells the details of the Apollo space missions, and what it was like for the twelve highly privileged astronauts to walk on the moon.

"Magnificent Desolation" gives us details of what it is like to walk on the moon. It is a behind the scenes documentary, and we get to see footage we would otherwise not see, such as astronauts tripping over on the moon. We are told that every minute of the moon walk is planned, and there is no time to waste. And an astronaut left his family photo on the moon for future generations to discover. It is filled with little facts that you otherwise would not see elsewhere. The real surprise was the narration. I didn't realise they were all celebrity voices and not astronaut voices, so when the credits rolled, I was shocked to see so many big names.

As a documentary, "Magnificent Desolation" is not particularly entertaining or educational. I did not leave the film thinking I have learned more. It contained fun facts to know nonetheless.
