It had been less than a year since the first man walked on the Moon, but to the American public, Apollo 13 was just another "routine" space flight. That is until the words pierced the immense void of space: "Houston, we have a problem." Stranded in a crippled spacecraft 205,000 miles from Earth, 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 the efforts of a heroic ground crew race against time - and the odds - to bring the men home.

An excellent movie, probably the best one regarding NASA, and a great performance by all those involved.

Glorious failure.
Apollo 13 game complacent NASA that going to space was a risky job.

Tom Hanks delivers a brilliant performance. Based on a true story, this film will keep you on the edge of your seating rooting for the astronauts. One of our family's favorite films.

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. “Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box”.
