This is another great movie. Tom hanks does an excellent job, Kevin Bacon did a good job to. I was about 14 or 15 when this really happened. I think the movie was real close to what really did happen on that flight. What does everybody else think?

It was a great movie, and all of the actors did a great job with their roles. I remember this event in real life too, and remember being glued to the tv listening for news of how it was going. I'll bet there was even more suspense going on in the real life version than we ever knew of. I can't imagine being in their shoes for a moment. Have to laugh though, this was my ex's favorite movie. He bought the tape of it and watched it at least once a week (I'm NOT joking lol) Then every time it was shown on TV, he'd watch it there too. As much as I liked seeing the movie the first few times, I eventually got so sick of watching or listening to it. I know...I shoulda bought another tv system...duh... (Pretty bad when you know all the actors lines by heart hahaha)

I don't think that i could watch a movie that much either, no matter how good it is,I did not see it for a long time so it was good to see it again. Thank you for your response.

I didn't know it was actually based on a real story? Or maybe I've forgotten even if I've read it as I saw the show quite a long time ago. If I remember correctly, the show is about 3 hours long, right?

Yes it was based on what really happened, and yes it did come out quite a long time ago, but it was on tv again, but i think that it only lasted about 2 hours, i dont think that it lasted any longer that a normal movie would last.and all the actors did a great job in the movie, i was glad that i watched it again.

Just made a search on IMDb. The release of the show was on 30th June 1995 & run time is 140mins. I knew I enjoyed the show but I can't recall exactly the suspense & all that. Maybe I should go look it up & watch it again? Haha

Hi dlr297. This movie was just great. I like Science movies and this one was the best among them. This has got everything in it. Tom Hanks performance was superb. yes you are right. This is very close to what really did happen on that night. Ron Howard has made it look very real. And all the events shown in the movie did really happen in Apollo 13. He has also made a great effort in details. This was just awesome movies.

hi dlr297! This movie was just great. I like science movies and this one was best among them. This has got everything in it. Tom Hanks performance was superb. Yes you are right. This movies is very close to what really did happen on that flight. Ron Howard has made it look very real. Almost all the events shown in the movie did happen in the real flight of Apollo 13. He has made a great effort in showing small details which made this movie look extremely real. This was just an awesome movie.
