Apollo 13 (PG)

Director Ron Howard. Adventure/Drama/History

Based on the true story of the ill-fated 13th Apollo mission bound for the moon. Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert were scheduled to fly Apollo 14, but are moved up to 13. It's 1970, and The US has already achieved their lunar landing goal, so there's little interest in this "routine" flight.. until that is, things go very wrong, and prospects of a safe return fade.


Starring Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon
Duration 134 mins

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A very good, convincingly gripping docudrama not spoiled by foreknowledge of the ending. Some excellent performances by the main players.
