Detailed, yet completely entertaining. A must see film., 18 March 2010
Author: Susan Froebel from Austin, Texas

I was captivated by this movie. There was great attention to detail and accuracy, yet the story never bogged down. A must see film for any age group.

Richard Garriott's many fans in the gaming industry will enjoy the history given here of that career, which started when he was a teen in high school. There are also glimpses inside his unique home which holds memorabilia from his many interests, including his interest in space.

While "Richard Garriott: Man on a Mission" by its very title tells you the main subject matter, the movie also give a fascinating look into the history of space travel. His father, Owen Garriott's, career as an astronaut is discussed, as well as the Russian history of space exploration, yet the facts were never dry or boring.

Kudos to the director and editor for a fascinating movie, but most of all, thank you to Richard for sharing this incredible journey with us.
