"Pretty cool movie"
4 stars"

This movie is, well obviously about space hence the name Apollo 13 and it tells the tale of a routine space mission that goes wrong. It is pretty long and definitely worth a look. The actors are brilliant, plot is good and the movie is cinematic and well paced. Tom Hanks plays the main character and he does a great job at it. Special effects are pretty good for when it was released and don't detract anything from it (as in make you wince at the sheer fakery of it, it is well done).

The special edition comes with an extra disc filled with goodys that are worth a watch. Making of, documentary type things, etc. A good buy, not an action movie but more a documentary itself, but… acted? A story based on real events. That's it. =)

Description

It had been less than a year since man first walked on the moon, but as far as the American public was concerned, Apollo 13 was just another "routine" space flight--until these words pierced the immense void of space: "Houston, we have a problem." Ron Howard directs Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks in a riveting suspense-thriller. Stranded 205,000 miles from earth in a crippled spacecraft, astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert fight a desperate battle to survive. Meanwhile, at Mission Control, astronaut Ken Mattingly, flight director Gene Kranz and a heroic ground crew race against time--and the odds--to bring them home. It's a breathtaking adventure that tells a story of courage, faith and ingenuity that is all the more remarkable because it is true!
