OPERATION AVALANCHE

Cert 15 Stars 3

This playful mockumentary plays on the conspiracy theory the 1969 Apollo 11 Moon landing was faked by NASA.

Posing as documentarians, two less than special FBI agents are sent to infiltrate NASA. They’re tasked to find Soviet spies, and clearly aren’t rocket scientists.

Instead they discover it’s impossible to return a man safely from the moon, and are roped into a politically expedient plot to fake the landing.

The commendably straight-faced actors take it all very seriously, and the photography captures the grainy feel of  1960s home movie.

Lacking any stars, this is an enjoyably knock-about enterprise.
