Even 50-plus years after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon, the idea of space travel is still a romantic one. The Apollo Moon Landings provides an introduction to the culture, politics, and science that led to America's expedition into space. The story of the Apollo 11 flight is fascinating, of course, but the documentary itself adds little to the story that is already familiar to many. There are plenty of other documentaries that go further in depth or provide a unique perspective, from 2019's Apollo 11 to 1989's For All Mankind.
