Director Ron Howard gave some of memorable films and most of them are human story. Although its sci-fi film, at the core of it lies a human adventure story of strong conviction and fighting against odds in outer space mission on moon. Based on the real story of moon mission, the film is a story of three astronomers who fought a brave battle in outer space to control their defective space ship and how they came back to planet earth successfully.
Its not just routine Hollywood entertainer but a film showing detailing of authentic space voyage. The highlight of the film is its strong casting- Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Ed Harris & Kathleen Quinlan. Gripping editing in the second half is another fine reason to see this film. The film was nominated in Oscar for multiple categories and won two trophies for Best Editing & Best Sound.
One time watch recommended.
