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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very realistic!, 18 Jan 2004
One of the best WW2 films i have seen, starring Tom Hanks. It starts on Omaha Beach and ends up in a small French Town. The first Half Hour was said to be one if the most realistic war seen in any movie. There's no such thing as everyone lives, able to dodge bullets etc in this movie. It's an acurate portrayal of real life WW2. The way war is in reality. I highly recommend this movie to anyone! Its Brill!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Briliant!, 31 Dec 2003
One of the best disaster films ever made follows a group of 10 survivors as there ship the "S.S. Poseidon" is struck by a 90ft tidal wave caused by an undersea earthquake which capsizes the ship. The survivors now have to make there way up through the smoking bowels of the capsized vessell where thery hope to be rescued. Its a fantastic movie with excellent acting and spectacular special effects which are very good for a film made in the 70's. A must see not just for disaster movie fans!
