About the Movie
In 1967, during the height of the Cold War, two young CIA agents (Matt Johnson and Owen Williams) go undercover at NASA to investigate a possible Russian mole. In disguise as documentary filmmakers, they tap phones and break into offices while purporting to learn more about the Apollo project. But when they end up uncovering a shocking NASA secret — and a major government cover-up — they decide to embark on a new mission that puts their own lives at risk.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Operation Avalanche" weaves well-known conspiracy theories into a goofily entertaining satire of youthful ambition co-opted as a tool of government intrigue.
Rotten: Johnson, who's not even 30, is undoubtedly a talent to watch (major studios have already come calling), but Operation Avalanche is a small step rather than a giant leap.
Fresh: Operation Avalanche demonstrates there's still plenty of room left within the found-footage format to craft fresh, high-concept projects, regardless of the fact that no one's falling for their alleged authenticity any longer.
Fresh: It's as dizzying as it sounds, but more the fun-house version of disorienting.
Weird, funny, thrilling
This is a rare flick. Thrilling. Worth the watch!
Underrated and worth the watch
More than just a found footage flick
Just can't get past the fact that people actually buy into the conspiracy theory that the moon landing was faked.
We landed on the moon in 1969 - it was real. We have the footage and physical evidence to prove it. Don't become one of those "conspiracy" people.
