Nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Apollo 13 is the inspiring and riveting story of the real-life space flight that gripped the nation and changed the world. It had been less than a year since man first walked on the moon, but as far as the American public was concerned, Apollo 13 was just another "routine" space flight - until these infamous words pierced the immense void of space: "Houston, we have a problem." Produced by Brian Grazer and directed by Ron Howard, Apollo 13 stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris in NASA's epic operation to save the lives of 3 astronauts battling to survive an ill-fated mission to the moon.

A little overdone with arguing in space (the astronauts didn't do that) but I love the music score and when the guys make it back it always moves me.
What a great achievement. Apollo 13 and the space program, not so much the movie, but I like the movie nonethe less.
The movie is really good too!
I haven't watched any of the special features yet, but this is a top quality release and currently the best release this movie has seen.
*A sour note for me is the gratuitous arguing scene among the astronauts during a critical moment in the saga. Some directors can't help themselves from changing the facts "for dramatic reasons". What's evident in the real story is that the astronauts remained calm under pressure and an exchange of this nature would never take place among flight professionals of this caliber. The success of their return counted on it, was the very reason it could take place. The losing temper scene is a Hollywood concocted bad choice within an otherwise beautifully crafted film.
