Talk about rolling snake eyes. To begin with, your mission is numbered "thirteen." Then the pilot you've trained with is grounded prior to lift-off because he's allegedly been exposed to the measles; he's replaced by a young buck still wet behind the ears. Once you're within spitting distance of the surface of the Moon an oxygen tank explodes. Obviously, it takes oxygen to breathe, so now what? Shut down everything in the command module, of course, shiver in the lunar module, and hope the gravitational tug from the Moon will slingshot you back home.
And I thought I had my bad days.
Yet the problems mentioned above merely scratch the surface of the true trials and tribulations of APOLLO 13. Director Ron Howard recreates this gripping, compelling story, right down to beehive hairdo's and computers the size of Mt. Rushmore. The drama, the sense of urgency--on the part of the astronauts, and the NASA staff in Houston frantically trying to save them--is so powerful and vivid I felt I was watching the actual event itself. To magically weave the viewer into the story is a crowning achievement for any filmmaker, and here, Howard succeeds like a wizard waving a wand.
Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Ed Harris, Kevin Bacon, and Gary Sinise headline a stellar cast in a grim race-against-time that had the entire world transfixed in April of 1970. I remember being glued to the TV watching Walter Cronkite broadcast around the clock to give us the latest developments of the Apollo 13 story; I remember the relief and joy I felt when that banged-up capsule was retrieved from the ocean. To relive the triumph--and near-tragedy--of this event is an awesome experience, and APOLLO 13 is awesome, indeed.

I watched the TV movie, and relived the drama of when it actually happened! I've always been a "space cadet", and have tried to watch every Space Mission. Problem is, it doesn't seem such a big deal any more, even with the Challenger explosion that took 7 lives. It annoys me that I cannot see every lift-off and landing, because it isn't generally made known any more.
The night the Apollo 13 epic happened I tried to stay awake, so I could see if the men made it back, but being the mother of 5 young children, I had to give up and go to bed, but they made it back safely.
This is indeed a collector's edition, and I am proud to have it.

Are you old enough to remember the space race and the first time an American set foot on the Moon? The Apollo 11 crew achieved that feat in July, 1969 and were followed by Apollo 12 in November, 1969. Apollo 13 attempted the trip in 1970, but an accident early in the mission prevented the landing. Instead, the mission became one of survival. Would the three astronauts make it back to Earth?

Jim Lovell (Hanks), Fred Haise (Paxton) and Ken Mattingly (Sinise) were set to make the trip, but Mattingly was replaced by Jack Swigert (Bacon), because it was feared that Mattingly might develop the measles on the trip. Gene Kranz (Harris) was in charge of Mission Control on the ground.

I remember the broadcasts of the Apollo 11 trip, but the American public were not particularly interested in seeing live footage by the time the Apollo 13 mission took place. We see the crew filming each other for TV, but they don't know that the pictures aren't being shown live. That all changed the moment the accident occurred. Instead of being a boring event, lives were suddenly at stake. TV crews scrambled to cover the unfolding events.

Hanks, Harris, Paxton, Sinise and Bacon are at their best in Apollo 13. We see the importance of trusting in the overall ability of the team, both in space and back in Houston. Director Ron Howard does a good job of showing how events aboard the ship affected things on the ground. The accident gave both teams several problems to overcome and it wouldn't have happened if either team had failed to contribute.

It's hard to imagine three men sitting in a confined space holding our attention for over two hours, but that's exactly what happens.

This is a well-made film. Ron Howard says it's not a documentary, but a lot of it is based on real events. Even the scenes that are known to be "artistic license" are believable; ie. when Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) start yelling at each about who is to blame for their predicament. They're sleep-deprived, they're uncomfortable, they're in a life-threatening situation, it makes sense for them to be a little short-tempered. I thought everyone's acting was excellent, although I'm a little biased because I'm a big fan of Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon. Ed Harris's portrayal of Flight Director Gene Kranz is wonderful; he says things like, "We've never lost an American in space and we're sure as hell not gonna lose one on my watch!" without sounding corny. I enjoyed the Dateline NBC "Lucky 13" story and the "Making Of" feature that are included in this edition. I would recommend watching these if you want to know more about the real Apollo 13 mission, or you're interested in space exploration in general, or you want to know what it was like for the cast and crew of the movie to do things like film in a NASA simulator or put on a pressurized space suit (Kevin Bacon says it made him claustrophobic and sleepy).
