Years later, 3 years ago from now, I picked it up and put it in my VCR. What I saw was one of the most beautiful, wonderful stories ever to capture an idea that space is beyond magic - it's much more.
The story starts with 3 teenagers, a kid and an instructor, taught and teaching what it is like in outer blackness, what to expect and basically how to survive. One test is to sit in a space craft and get used to its feeling. During their exploration of the space craft, a robot named 'Jinx', a handyman for N.A.S.A, who is great friends with 'Max', the young child on part of the Space Camp team, pushes the button to launch the space craft in to space, as a wish of 'Max'.
And so they are launched. The craft was only ready with 2 oxygen tanks; no where near enough to last them the flight back in to the Earth's atmosphere. Upon entering space, they must work as a team, which proved difficult during Space Camp, collect tanks of Oxygen from the space centre in the black yonder and make it back to Earth alive.
This is their one chance of working together as a team, and ultimetly, surviving.
At one point, 'Max' goes to help Andy, the instructor, who has been knocked out by an oxygen tank that flies towards her, and himself, starts to drift out in to the depths of Space. The visuals are extra-ordinary, and there is immense intense during viewing.
When the credits roll, you've just seen an epic, and you'll never be able to stop talking about it.
This is a fun little movie meant simply as family entertainment. Of course it has technical inaccuracies, it's a movie about kids being launched into space. I just don't understand people who rag on it because some aspects aren't technically correct. This isn't a NASA training film, it's just an exciting little movie that a family can watch together. It also stars Larry B. Scott, who played Lamar in Revenge of the Nerds, and Terry O'Quinn, who played Locke in Lost.
