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

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.

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

Although there have been several 'Anniversary' Editions of this classic movie over the years, this 20th Anniversary Bluray release boasts a newly restored and remastered presentation using the original 35mm camera film elements scanned at 4K resolution - the results are truly stunning, with vastly improved colours, depth of field and image clarity which pretty much renders all previous versions obsolete in comparison, so if you're asking yourself 'is this really worth buying to replace the one I already have?'...the answer is Yes, without a shadow of a doubt, it is indeed....

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

This is one of my favourite movies! Starring Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon and an all star cast. It has been less than a year since man first walked on the moon, but as far as the american public were concerned, Apollo 13 was just another 'routine' space flight. Until these words peirced the imense void of space: 'Houston we have a problem'. 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. Flight director Gene Kranz (Ed Harris) and a heroic ground crew race againt time-and the odds- to bring the 3 men home. It's a breathtaking adventure that tells a story of courage, faith, and ingenuity thats all the more remarkable becuse it is true! The special effects are pretty darn cool. I can't believe that none of the footage of the liftoff is completely original. If you want to demonstrate the power of your home system, this is the chapter for you. Its got amazing sound and visuals. I also love the fact that in the interior spacecraft scenes they are actually floating around in there, and not held up by wires (They did this using a KC-135 weightless environment aircraft). It definitely adds more credibility to this film. The movie is overall fantastic accomopainied by great music from James Horner(who did Titanic and the Perfect Storm). In my opinion, anyone who likes great movies or who is interested in space flight or adventure SHOULD BUY THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!! You won't regret it!
