Goofs

When Jimeno is dealing with the tourists outside the bus terminal, the shadow of the first plane is cast on the E Walk of The Westin New York at Times Square. This cannot be true, since both the E Walk and The Westin were under construction at the time and opened in October 2002. See more »

Paramount wasted their money - don't waste yours
9 October 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

The remarkable thing about the film 'Apollo 13' is that although you know how the story ends, the film-makers still achieve story telling of the highest order. Not so, this shameless piece of Yankee propaganda.

It is arrant nonsense to say that this is not a political film - there would be NO film without the politics, yet Stone affects to ignore that this awful event prompted one of the most evil misuses of military-industrial power in modern history. More innocent Afghanis were slaughtered by an act of blind vengeance than the total number of innocent victims of September 11th.

As another person commented on this site, you'd think that the two NY cops buried in this film were the only victims... This film represents the low point of an otherwise interesting and often laudable career as a film maker.

And apart from all the above, even if you take issue with the politics I refer to, I defy you say that this is not the most boring two hours you've ever endured in a cinema.
