Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Playing the tough, commanding Jim Lovell is a substantial stretch for Mr. Hanks, but as usual his seeming ingenuousness overshadows all else about the role. There's not a false move to anything he does on screen.
Fresh: This engrossing account of the nation's most perilous moon shot embodies what many people consider to be old-fashioned American virtues in a virtually pristine state.
Fresh: The special effects and many scenes of weightlessness look as good or better than in the original, while the Oscar-winning sound and James Horner's rousing score make good use of the hefty audio system.
Fresh: The film, despite its raggedness, is stirring. In the end, this failed mission seems like the most impressive achievement of the entire space program: a triumph not of planning but of inspired improvisation.
Incredible story with superb actors. The fact that it's all true makes it even better. Absolutely amazing.

Apollo 13 has a grea tstory made even better by the fact that it is true, on Itunes with dolby digital 5.1, on Apple TV. Who needs DVD's?
