Apollo 18 fails to stay with you because, like the cratered satellite on which it's set, it has no atmosphere.
Keith Staskiewicz — Entertainment Weekly
Accomplishes something the world wasn't really crying out for: it recreates the tedium of watching the later Apollo missions.
Mike Hale — New York Times
For most horror fans it will be kind of a snooze.
Joel Brown — Boston Globe
Reconfirms that most entries in the "found-footage" horror subgenre should remain lost.
Nick Schager — Village Voice
Has no thrills, no chills, no scares and contains a villain, or several of them, actually, that will turn you to stone -- from boredom.
Joe Neumaier — New York Daily News
Despite stretches of skillfully sustained suspense, Apollo 18 ultimately comes across as little more than a modestly clever stunt.
Joe Leydon — Variety
Boredom sets in long before the last muted shriek. And who cares about the astros? We never get to know them anyway.
Peter Howell — Toronto Star
The source of the creepy events, when it's finally revealed, is profoundly dull, like a forgettable episode of The X-Files or Fringe.
Eric D. Snider — Film.com
This space-set, "found footage" horror flick never lifts off.
Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter
The film takes a startlingly long time to rev up, and even at less than 90 minutes feels thin and at moments like it is playing for time.
Mark Olsen — Los Angeles Times
A potentially cool "found footage" flick that is desperately in need of a lot more brains ... or a lot more silliness.
The movie builds up to a mystery that it never does much to resolve, with its big set piece reveal consisting mostly of a couple of rocks moving.
Will Leitch — Deadspin
The 'found footage' horror movie Apollo 18 recycles the premise of The Blair Witch Project on the moon and still manages a few good scares.
Sean Kernan — We Got This Covered
"The cheap frights don't deliver, the performers bring no pathos and the gimmick behind "Apollo 18″ flat out does not work."
It's impossible to recommend Apollo 18 to anyone but the most staunch found-footage fans. The film fails every requirement of a tense and enjoyable time at the theater.
Ben Kendrick — ScreenRant
"Apollo 18" is another dud in a genre that should have stopped before it got out of hand.
Jeff Beck — Examiner.com
Feels like nothing more than an attempt to cash in on a trend, and it's a textbook example of how not to do that.
William Bibbiani — CraveOnline
An astonishingly incompetent and interminable piece of work...
David Nusair — Reel Film Reviews
Apollo 18 is a mercilessly dull movie that just doesn't make much sense. It's light on thrills, and the found-footage gimmick works against the tension.
R. L. Shaffer — IGN DVD
The REAL reason why we never built bases on the moon by 1999 . . .
