You can't fail to feel the excitement!, 8 January 2012
Author: radiokate from London

Since I share Richard's dream of space travel it was a truly thrilling piece of cinema. I've have the fortune of watching shuttle launches up close, but it was a real treat to get a glimpse of things at Star City in Russia.

Beautifully put together, lovely camera work and a real 'stuff that dreams are made of' story. You can't fail to get swept along by the excitement, and indeed the danger of Richard's mission.

I've heard Richard tell his personal story before, it really is an incredible tale of determination and passion. The only thing that would have improved this film would be a little more about how this journey came about. He speaks eloquently about his childhood and the lengths he went to to follow in his father's footsteps, yet in the film, I felt they rushed over this slightly to get to the unmistakeably awesome footage of him getting ready for the trip itself. I can understand why they did this, but a little more about the personal side of this at the start would have earned it that 10th star from me.

Don't get me wrong, I utterly loved it, would highly recommend it to anyone and it gave me such an excellent taste of what a Soyuz mission would be like that I'll be straight out working out how I can get up there myself!
