      Simon Foster (The director's) detachment from the humanity of his subjects is frustrating and mars a technically fine piece of film-making. Aug 9, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A fun documentary, though that may sound like an oxymoron to some. Really it is two documentaries. One is about rich people paying an impoverished nation's space program to go to the ISS, and the other follows a group of Kazakhs as they chase the falling booster engines so they can cut them up over a period of days and sell the scrap to China. The second stages fall in more heavily populated areas, and if they do not take out some poor peasant's house, they too chop these things up and make tools or patch their roofs with them. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Engaging doc examines the new frontier of space tourism built on the ashes of the once venerable Soviet space program. There's an elegiac quality to its look at what was once a grand, now mostly abandoned. Lofty dreams overgrown with weeds. It's a bit unfocused, and it's score doesn't really fit, but there are flashes of something great here. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A fascinating idea that is a bit schizophrenic in its execution. It also makes the idea of going to the moon really unappealing. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Weri weri najs! Po filmie wróciłem do domu i odpaliłem Apollo 13. Polecam (oba). Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member You get to see true astronaut training at Star City in Russia, as well as the earth from orbit, but the film seemed rushed and disjointed. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Was really quite boring. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
