  • Howard lays off the manipulation to tell the true story of the near-fatal 1970 Apollo 13 mission in painstaking and lively detail. It's easily Howard's best film. show more

  • Ron Howard's film of this mission is directed with a single-mindedness and attention to detail that makes it riveting. show more

  • It's a nail-biter and knuckle whitener of the first rank: a super real life techno thriller that reduces the fantasies of Tom Clancy and his clones to ground zero. show more
