There are no side hatches with portholes that open on the descent (re-entry) module in either the Soyuz-TMA or Shenzhou spacecraft. It has three hatches: The ingress and EVA hatch, which is the only way of entering the spacecraft at launch; The internal transfer hatch through the docking port (not installed in all Soyuz crafts), and; The hatch to the descent module. Crew ingress takes place by the crew entering first the orbital module and then climb into the descent module. This is necessary as the descent module is simply too small to allow more than three hatches. See more »

I didn't think this movie would be that good with some of the reviews I've seen so I waited until the movie was on HBO. I'm not sure why a lot of people don't like this movie. This was an excellent tale of trying to survive with all the odds against you. This movie draws you in and makes you root for the characters without actually getting in depth to their lives. You don't need to know all about someone in a survival situation because it really doesn't matter what they did in the past. Some things in the movie aren't realistic but its a movie its not real life so I'm OK with it. These are some of the CGI I've seen in a long time. I'm not to sure why there's so many people who dislike this movie.
