Apollo 13Based on the true story of the ill-fated 13th Apollo mission bound for the moon. '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. Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert were scheduled to fly Apollo 14, but are moved up to 13. It';s 1970, and America have already achieved their lunar landing goal, so there';s little interest in this 'routine' flight.. until that is, things go very wrong, and prospects of a safe return fade.

Critic Reviews of "Apollo 13"New York Daily NewsAugust 22, 2014
Tom Hanks is on his way to becoming the American Everyman, an exemplar of boyish goodwill and quiet moral force.Seattle TimesAugust 22, 2014
Ron Howard's pop-entertainment you-are-there space thriller is easily the most rousing film of the year. And it might make real spaceflight just as nifty as Star Wars for youngsters.Washington PostJuly 30, 2013
Even if you know how it all turned out (and you should), this amazing journey is harrowing and exhilarating.Wall Street JournalJuly 30, 2013
The film succeeds brilliantly at organizing great gobs of information into powerful drama.Orlando SentinelJuly 30, 2013
Hanks is a terrific choice for the lead because he can appear strong and military without slipping over into Sgt. Rock corniness.Chicago TribuneJuly 30, 2013
Apollo 13, one of the most exciting adventure movies of the year, proves that science history can be just as thrilling as science fiction.South Florida Sun-SentinelJuly 30, 2013
The special effects are as spectacular as anything in Star Trek, but Howard shows wise restraint in not inflating the drama and tension inherent in the true story.Radio TimesJuly 30, 2013
Partially filmed in genuine weightless conditions, Ron Howard's movie is a technical tour de force.Baltimore SunJuly 30, 2013
This stuff works so well because the production is so convincing.Philadelphia Daily NewsJuly 30, 2013
The genius of Apollo 13 lies in its universal appeal -- everybody loves a story about a lousy flight.Total FilmJuly 30, 2013
Tom Hanks perfectly embodies white bread goodness as mission leader Jim Lovell and, while we may all know the ending, it's a tribute to Howard's no-frills, focused direction that the story remains undeniably gripping.People MagazineJuly 30, 2013
Tense as the best murder mysteries and as kinetic as the most exciting action films, this space adventure is as thrilling as movies get.
