Almost immediately after reaching orbit, the Space Shuttle has to open its cargo bay doors in order to vent heat from the craft through radiators built on the inside of the doors. These doors aren't closed again until just before re-entry in order to prevent over-heating. For much of their time in orbit in this movie, the bay doors remain closed. In addition, the doors on Atlantis don't even have the radiators. See more »

Four teenagers (Lea Thompson, Larry B. Scott, Kelly Preston and Tate Donovan) and one pre-teen (Joaquin Phoenix) get launched into outer space by a small robot in this above-average adventure movie. Kate Capshaw is along for the ride as the instructor and Tom Skerritt is solid as the one in charge of mission control when the crisis occurs. With the exception of Scott, the other four young stars have all had recognizable careers. Joaquin Phoenix, in particular, steals every scene as the youngest of the five. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
