About the Film
Stranded 205,000 miles from Earth in a crippled spacecraft, astronauts Jim Lovell (Hanks), Fred Haise (Paxton) and Jack Swigert (Bacon) fight a desperate battle to survive. Meanwhile, at Mission Control, astronaut Ken Mattingly (Sinise), flight director Gene Kranz (Harris) and a heroic ground crew race against time - and the odds - to bring them home.
This film is undoubtably one of the most moving space films ever to be made, and possibly Ron Howards best work.
This is the best film I have ever seen! Would easily recomend buying it to anybody!
Apollo 13 tells the story of the so nearly-doomed third flight to the moon, which proceeded as normal for 55 hours before a routine oxygen tank stir caused a life-threatening explosion to rip through the fragile craft, turning the mission from one of exploration to one of simply surviving. Ron Howard directs a cast including Tom Hanks, Ed Harris, Bill Paxton and Gary Sinise, retelling the heart-stopping drama which occurred more than 200,000 miles from the Earth and the sheer ingenuity and relentless effort of both the three-man crew and the hundreds of controllers on the ground. Over four days they worked together, re-inventing and testing the limits of the Apollo spacecraft which ultimately led to Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert nursing their crippled command module back home against all the odds.
