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: APOLLO 13 is...A-OK. In an era when cinematic heroics seem to be defined by bullets and brawn, it is a pleasure to see a movie in which the good guys triumph by using their brains!!!
Incredible story with superb actors. The fact that it's all true makes it even better. Absolutely amazing.
Apollo 13 is love
I freaking love this movie!!!
Why don't more of the good ones have Dolby Digital 5.1
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?
