Destination Moon (1950)

A team composed of an aerospace scientist, an ex-Air Force general and an industrialist conceive an ambitious plan to land Americans on the moon.

Excellently produced sci-fi advaenture with good effects and amazing scientific accuracy in almost all details; interesting, but not quite exciting.

Halliwell*: "Semi-documentary prophecy with impressive gadgetry encased in a tedious and totally unsuprising script."

Maltin**1/2: "One of the pioneer sci-fi films about the first manned mission to the moon, modestly mounted but still effective. Striking lunar paintings by Chelsey Bonestell."
