I was really looking forward to seeing this movie. I liked the premise of the secret Apollo mission and what they might have found (or what might have found them!), but after watching it, I was very disappointed. I thought it was going to be a LOT more exciting and intense than it was. The whole movie was “found footage” from the secret mission that has been pieced together – almost seemed like they were trying to copy The Blair Witch Project or Cloverfield or one of those types of movies with the camera footage we’re able to watch. I felt the isolation, but not the intensity! It wasn’t “scary” to me. And they took it too far with being afraid of what you can’t see – they didn’t show enough!!! I couldn’t even tell for most of the movie what I was supposed to be afraid of. I didn’t connect with ANY of the characters, so I didn’t really care if they lived or died! It felt like it should have been so much "more" - they could have done a lot more with the story and seemed like they barely even tried. It was pretty basic, pretty predictable and completely threw common sense out the window for most of it! I was NOT impressed!
