Capture the Flag is a 2015 Spanish made but American set computer generated 3D movie which is a family fable masquerading as a drama about going to the moon.
The movie involves a 12 year old boy named Mike Goldwing who is he son and grandson of NASA astronauts. His grandfather was a retired astronaut who kept himself isolated after missing a fly to fly to the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as a part of the Apollo XI mission. His father on the other hand was an active astronaut and aspiring to execute his own space flight someday. A ruthless billionaire tycoon called Richard Carson is trying to hoodwink the American public into thinking the landings were a hoax so he can set up his own helium plant on the moon and become the most powerful man in the world. Brave Mike embarks on an adventure to moon with his best friend Amy and his Grandfather tried to stop Richard and once again change the history by the second landing in the moon.
The movie’s animation effects is so outstanding that I was again drooling with amusement how grate the creators of this movie is. Message and screenplay are of excellent straight to the point storyline which will made you felt like you were part of the movie as this is a touching family story except for the moon exploration!
“There is nothing more important than family. That is why we cannot give up on them” – This script uttered by Samantha, Mike’s mom, is a very emotional statement which made me crying baby for a while and quickly triggered my brain cells and remembered all family and relatives. Sometimes, trials test our family’s love for one another, for some this tear us apart and made us give up the special bonds that we have. This movie made sure that we remember the happiness it can give to us who will love our love ones unconditionally. I really admire how Mike’s grandfather gave us his once in a lifetime opportunity to go to the moon with Armstrong & Aldrin because his son got sick. This scene proves us the fathers love is unconditionally and irreplaceable. Oh! This really made me cry so hard because I missed my father so much and all I want was to thank him for everything he had sacrifice for our future. Thank you much Dad! I may not be able to tell or show you how grateful I am but our Creator knows my soul and love for both of you and Mom from the moon and back!
