    This moon movie has better imagery of the space legend than has NASA's CGI's & the 1969 moon landing tv show! "Imagine- going 1000 mph & no breeze!"

    This isn't a great movie but it's decent and enjoyable. There are some fairly interesting predictions about what a Moon landing might be like including explanations of gravity, G Forces, how space craft remain in orbit etc. Not bad. Then there is the silly including the one crew member with the Brooklyn accent who seems utterly clueless. When he looks at the Earth in the distance and spots NYC, he wonders aloud: "I wonder who's pitching today." Then there's the idiot who releases his harness during a space walk, kneels down and disengages his magnetic shoes. Really dumb. The multi-colored space suits are more of a nod to Technicolor than to functionality. But for 1950, this is a rather good science fiction adventure and worth watching.

    This is an awesome movie for it's time or should I say for anytime. It's right up there with "Day The Earth Stood Still, Forbidden Planet, This Island Earth, etc." Science Fiction fans who read Heinlein will love it. Most younger viewers won't like it because it came without computer aided graphics but had painted backgrounds for effects. In today's world with people who call themselves writers. They don't have a precious thing that most normal people had at one time and that is an imagination. The writers of this era had great talent and imaginations. This an enjoyable hour and a half which I could watch again and again.

    A great movie with what at the time were ground breaking special effects. Based on a Heinlein book with lots of Heinlein input into the script - even has a Woody Woodpecker cartoon to explain how spaceflight works. Will appeal to anyone who fondly remembers the golden era of SF and for fans of early sfx.
