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: It's as dizzying as it sounds, but more the fun-house version of disorienting.
Fresh: Think Christopher Guest crossed with the Jackass guys.
Weird, funny, thrilling
This is a rare flick. Thrilling. Worth the watch!
Underrated and worth the watch
More than just a found footage flick
Don't waste your time.
This movie was made to make people who don't believe in the moon landings look silly. The CIA would never hire people like the agents in this movie. A better movie to watch about the moon landing theory is: A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE MOON. It's on Youtube for free.
