From Amazon.co.uk

NASA's worst nightmare turned into one of the space agency's most heroic moments in 1970, when the Apollo 13 crew was forced to hobble home in a disabled capsule after an explosion seriously damaged the moon-bound spacecraft. Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, and Bill Paxton play (respectively) astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise in director Ron Howard's intense, painstakingly authentic docudrama. The Apollo 13 crew and Houston-based mission controllers race against time and heavy odds to return the damaged spacecraft safely to Earth from a distance of 205,500 miles. Using state-of-the-art special effects and ingenious filmmaking techniques, Howard and his stellar cast and crew build nail-biting tension while maintaining close fidelity to the facts. The result is a fitting tribute to the Apollo 13 mission and one of the biggest box-office hits of 1995. --Jeff Shannon

We all know how good this film is. But what you may not know is how good the bonus material is. There are interviews with the real astronauts and recording of the actual radio transmitions from Apollo 13. Many of these were used to help with the script.

The film - 5 Stars

The extras - 5 Stars

There really cannot be anyone on the planet who does not know the ending to this story, so to be able to create a film that still manages to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout and then bring a feeling of such elation at the end is a massive achievement. Of course this also means that you can watch this film many times over and never tire of it.

If you lived through the Apollo era, and Apollo 13 in particular, this is a wonderful reminder of the awe and excitement we all felt as we watched all these brave explorers. If you didn't, this is a wonderful insight to the so recent and yet so different era of what we would now consider primitive technology, where men climbed in to a craft little bigger than a caravan with computing power so much less than we all now routinely carry around in our pockets, and travelled to the moon. The love and attention to detail in the making of this film is impressive in itself, and a testament to how what these people achieved is still regarded 40 years later. Superb.

Considering every living being in the civilised world knows how this ends, Ron Howard has done a masterful job in maintaining suspense through to the end. Although some of the dialog is a bit jingoistic, the film really portrays the Herculean efforts that were made by the 'Tiger Team', led by Gene Kranz (brilliantly played by Ed Harris) and other unsung heroes (although Kranz and others received the Presidential Medal of Freedom for their efforts). It also tells of the pressure felt by the three astronauts during their ordeal, a quarter of a million miles from home. All in all an engrossing depiction of one of the most momentous events of space exploration. If you want drama, buy this and enjoy. If you want the solid facts then read the book “Lost Moon” (now published as “Apollo 13”) by someone who was there, Jim Lovell, Commander Apollo 13, co-written by Jeffrey Kluger.

Once again , my review is about the Blu-Ray and not the film its self..
I was a little duboius at fist as this film has allot of old NASA film stock cut into the film and mixing that with moden filmstock would give obvoius drawbacks when creating a perfect 1080 P picture that runs smoothly.
That said , I ate my words because this transfur is indeed close to perfection..
The resolution has been sharpend to a tee and the the colour looks vibrant catching the time period of the 1960's Eastman colour used in almost all moives and polaroids of that time.
The space effects now look sharper and REAL , with deeper backs and moon shots better than any genuine image taken through-out the late 1960's and early 70's.
Allot of work has gone into improoving the final print and it works.
The sound also is crisp with the now standard DTS HD master , then given the 5.1 domestic finshing to set your frontroom wall shaking during "blast off"..!

But for me the detail in costume and prop's always gives me the most pleasure , the fabrics weave can be seen in the sweaters ,and even the time can be clearly seen on all of the lovely OMEGA watch's worn by the crew and NASA staff.
I great movie improoved to a FANTASTIC movie , worth the money and the 1080 treatmant !!

The DVD is brillient and really interesting it tell's you everthing about the movie it even has jim lovell and his wife decribing ever shot of the film telling you whats real and isn't. the movie everyone should know by now it tells of the ill fated flight of apollo 13 to the moon and the way everyone at nasa got the crew back home. Whats brillent is that everyone knows the ending but you still enjoy the film again and again. Worth having in your collection.

Format: DVD
This is a recreation of America's third NASA mission to land on the moon in 1970, and the subsequent disaster that almost befell the mission........

Director Ron Howard and his producer Brian Grazer, made a top draw picture about an incident that everyone knew the outcome too. That it engrosses and thrills to make the inevitable denouement a mere component of a whole, is quite a fabulous achievement. Sure it can be said that it lacks a certain political appendage {RE:The Right Stuff}, but for the duration of this picture we are wowed by the design and construction on offer. It would have been easy for Howard to use stock footage of real NASA missions, but all sequences are recreated by the makers with astonishingly impacting results, thus adding authenticity to the palpable tension when things go belly up.

Howard was wise in his choice of leading man, who better than Tom Hanks {Jim Lovell, who's memoirs the script worked from} to portray a bastion of Americana?, nobody, because Hanks is perfect, as are Bill Paxton {Fred Haise} and Kevin Bacon {John Swigart} sitting either side of Hanks, a couple of bona fide solid and respected actors you could not have wished to have. Down on the ground the acting is also exemplary, Kathleen Quinlan as the fraught Marylyn Lovell is fantastic, with Ed Harris {Gene Kranz} and Gary Sinise {Ken Mattingly} adding emotional weight to the unfolding drama. With Howard reining in his trade mark sentimental flourishes, Apollo 13 relies on its story and its craft to steer it safely home, and safely home it gets, just like the men of Apolo 13. To give us a punch the air joy that comes as much out of tension relief as it does because of raw human emotion, quite a picture indeed. 8/10
