horrible
10 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made for TV piece of junk shows exactly why made for TV movies are held in disdain.

This is supposed to be the Apollo 13 story, but it has nothing to do with the astronauts. All of the film is about the flight controllers and their personal problems at home. It is just stupid.

Gary Collins is in it... enough said.

Robert Culp should have know better than to be in this.

Most of the story in the film is fictitious.

Thank goodness Ron Howard came along twenty years later and told the Apollo 13 story is a way that NASA and everyone involved deserved.
