An Event Caught In Film Over the years Tom Hanks has perfected his craft to such a point that in almost every role that he now undertakes he is indistinguishable from the character that he is portrays. Apollo 13 not only stands as yet another example of the exceptional work of Tom Hanks - the film also happens to be an account of a historical event in mankind's journey into space.
One of the best Space movies ever Okay so I set out on a space craze after getting into Kerbal Space Program and the likes, and I just wanted to see anything to do with the moon or space. I can't explain how perfect this movie was for me, and I recommend it to everyone who has the slightest interest in space. (So....everyone) Amazing movie.
Amazing They spent countless hours in the vomit comet while filming this so they could get the perfect zero gravity effects. Thanks to that and an amazing crew, this is one of the best and most realistic movies you'll ever see. Simply amazing.
This is, by far, my favorite movie. Many of the lines are straight from mission transcripts, all zero-g shots were filmed actually in zero-g, and it's a great movie to boot. I remember seeing it when it came out in theaters and I can say, without a doubt, that I am who I am today because of this movie.
Extraordinary and Remarkable!!! Many space movies like this always deserved awards for best visual effects. Its also amazing how the astronauts and everyone at mission control improvised to bring all three men home safe. I think this movie is an Oscar winner for best picture.
Outstanding performance, true to life story line You already know the outcome but you may not know the people. Based on actual events but a gripping character study none the less. I'm happy to grant poetic license in exchange for humanizing these heroes.
Great! What a great and suspenseful movie .. If you want to know the whole incredible story, read the book Ron Howard based this movie on: "Lost Moon" ... then you will truly understand why this was said to be NASA's Finest Hour
