    It may be colorful and exciting the first time, but now it just

    It may be colorful and exciting the first time, but now it just seems like another piece of military-industrial-complex propaganda. We needed the Moon as a base to control the world. That B.S. died when the first ICBM flew. I know just about every sci-fi movie has to have a stupid sidekick, but this one is nauseating. With its micro budget and black-and-white and tiny shooting schedule, and the fact that it beat the big studio to the theaters, ROCKETSHIP X-M has DESTINATION MOON slammed as a far more human and humane movie. DM has some Disney gloss--and a cartoon yet to prove it--but is still nuclear-powered hogwash by comparison. Fuel mixtures are still a prime concern for space travel, but atomic energy is relegated to just for electrical power in deep space. Using rocket stages in RXM is closer to the truth, and there really have been accidents. If all we care about is Scientific Accuracy, then we shouldn't be looking at Science Fiction Movies at all anyway, but documentaries.

    Dated but prescient of our space program.

    As a baby boomer fan of the space program, I still find this type of film exciting and inspiring. It captures the mood of the time, when the future seemed bright and rewarding in space. Other than some of the actual hardware we finally used, it is still accurate and prescient in what we would experience, and sticks to a "man vs. nature" conflict, which is the one thing that will not change as we move out into space.

    A must have SI-FI movie

    It was far ahead of it's time. The visuals are ahead of the times, and it gave a look at what was yet to come. It was exciting and funny at the same time. If you want escapism, this is it.

    Classic Henlein!!

    If you are a Rober Henlein fan then this movie is a must see. He wrote the script for it. This movie shows a lot of correct science for the 1950's era which no other movie of that time ever did. Plus the story is a classic.
