Storyline

April 13th, 1970, 180,000 miles from Earth, a devastating malfunction leaves Apollo 13 leaking previous oxygen and its crew of three astronauts facing a life and death crisis. If Mission Control cannot find a way to bring Apollo 13 home, the astronauts will be stranded 200,000 miles from Earth in their dying ship. Now with limited power and supplies on board the spacecraft, the ground teams work around the clocking, engineering creative solutions to overcome carbon dioxide poisoning, dehydration and the freezing temperatures of deep space, to ensure the crew's survival. Using spectacular NASA footage, exclusive interviews with Apollo space scientists and stunning visual effects; this film explores the thirteen remarkable factors that brought the crew safely home, and the full story of the courage and ingenuity that cemented Apollo 13 as NASA's finest hour.

Fascinating, but nothing new
5 September 2018 | by Phil_ChesterSee all my reviews

We all know the well-worn story of Apollo 13. Despite having heard it a million times before, it's still riveting and heart-stoppingly tense. However, this film doesn't add anything new to the party and just runs through the same-old, same-old. It's nicely done, but we've been here before.
