This truly thrilling thriller, Apollo 13 is played out in a sequence of zestfully dramatic scenes and never once failed to keep me breathless.

Tom Hanks plays Jim Lovell, one of the three astronauts chosen to fly to the moon via Apollo 13. Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) make up the rest of the team and off they go!

But problems arise. A malfunction occurs in the ship and their lives hang in the balance (hence the famous line "Houston, we have a problem,"). Now they must forego their visit to the moon and just concentrate on making it back to earth alive in an ill-working LEM with limited oxygen, and built to support only two men, not three.

I have only one minor complaint about this movie. Tom Hanks is far more handsome in jeans than in a spacesuit! Rent Apollo 13 today for a breathless two hours.

My Rating = Four Stars
