Overview

"Houston, we have a problem." Those words were immortalized during the tense days of the Apollo 13 lunar mission crisis in 1970, events recreated in this epic historical drama from Ron Howard. Astronaut Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) leads command module pilot Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and lunar module driver Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) on what is slated as NASA's third lunar landing mission. All goes smoothly until the craft is halfway through its mission, when an exploding oxygen tank threatens the crew's oxygen and power supplies. As the courageous astronauts face the dilemma of either suffocating or freezing to death, Mattingly and Mission Control leader Gene Kranz (Ed Harris) struggle to find a way to bring the crew back home, all the while knowing that the spacemen face probable death once the battered ship reenters the Earth's atmosphere. The film received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic critical response and a Best Picture nomination, but lost that Oscar to another (very different) historical epic, Mel Gibson's Braveheart. In 2002, the movie was released in IMAX theaters as Apollo 13: The IMAX Experience, with a pared-down running time of 116 minutes in order to meet the technical requirements of the large-screen format.

Space flight: American and russians are lairs. Complete lies. Those who want to know the truth and how far above we have gone then study SR71 blackbird Airforce jet of USa built in 1960s. this was later withdrawn in 1989. the maximum height airborne is about 85,000 ft. this SR 71 is supposedly the best manned jet plane ever built the max spped attained was 3.7 mac. there are several videos and documentaries including first hand report by pilots who flew this. this was a substitute for u2 spy plane which was easily sho down by missiles. Just study you will realise it is impossible given the technology and atmospheric condition -heat and thermal expansion, sound barrier to travel at this speed for even more than 1 hour. this plane had titanium alloy. Secondly: Apollo lunar mission is all fake rocket asstronauts. these guys have no flight background. just fake people. after the fake mission all these guys have been isolated and thier homes bugged to make sure they dont speak the truth. complete fake. Finally moon is an illusion. what is the shapee of earth and why does sun rise and set? -let me tell this. if any person has ever in the history of humna life on this planet found out these facts of 'solar system' he took has not told to anyone or he took it to the grave with him. it is far more different science than we know. Earth is definitely a flat mass of land surrounded by ice etc. like a saddle/seat on a swing that it held by ropes/tethers. no one has circumnavigated the earth north-south-norht or vice versa. why? ice. beyond that sun and star is a complicated phenomenon, if understand that i am sure we can predict weather and all celestial events days in advacne if not months. today weather dept are able to predict storm, tornados, cyclone only a few minutes. most of the early warnings are wrong most of the time. extreme drought, rain are never predicted.

This movie happens to be my favorite movie, and inspired me to try and become an astronaut. This started at age 6, and at age 14 I'm still interested in space a airplanes. I fully recomend this movie to anyone of all ages.

One of my all-time favorite films! Everyone is fantastic! And the line 'Failure is not an option' is my guiding mantra in life! Really really great - I thought Ron Howard should have won for this, not for A Beautiful Mind.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The first time I saw it was in my math class in 7th grade. I thought it was so so good when the movie was over. Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, and Kevin are three of my favorite Actors. This movie was also really really sad in some parts.

Ever since I saw this movie I've loved it! Its a truly amazing true story. When I saw it I didn't know how it would end so I cried when the astronauts families, NASA, and the world were waiting for them to come home. After I saw it I would give anything to See it back in 1970!

This is probably the first movie I have watched that goes directly along with what really happened during the real event. I give the actors, writers, directors, producers, and others who worked on this film two thumbs up!
