If space flew any spaceship, wait disaster. It is the law of cinema, which is so the same applies to soaring planes and sailed the ships. If with these vehicles nothing happens when they flying/swimming passes without accidents, then then do not know to make a film, because not interested.

Here tragic story of a space ship with the unfortunate name of "Apollo 13", as described in the book "Lost Moon" was the basis for removing the film about "the most serious of all situations in the NASA," as said that the disaster in the end of the film.

Whether I too much to expect from this film, after reading in the synopsis that it's a space blockbuster adventure film with an ingenious plot that keeps the suspense and thrills, then if it the story itself is, but instead of a terrible catastrophe, the struggle of the astronauts and staff of mission control center for their salvation I saw the sluggish and uninteresting from this action that neither a drop not impressed.

I, of course, not was waiting for cries of "Help! Help!", accompanied by hand-wringing and hysterics in about the threat of death. I just waiting for interesting, exciting, dynamic, and touch actions, which in the end is not received.

Itself disaster beat so does on the middle of the film loses all interest in it look and predictable finale only contributes to this. When a sluggish course of events nor what kind of voltage is out of the question can. The situation in the mission control centre in Houston looks everyday rush jobs to work, efficiency of actions and fuss because of the need for rapid decision-making, because every second counts shown so bad that we can assume that they do not exist, and so there is no atmosphere of catastrophe, and the astronauts find themselves in trouble, just doing what he tells them to do with Land. About the value of the lives of the astronauts of speech is not maintained. The head of operations in Houston proudly declares: "We never lost to the Americans in space not lose it!" (I feel that the word "Americans" out there key times "Apollo 13" claimed the title of best film at the Oscars), showing the the statistics it is very important.

Out of boredom and lack of interest and enthusiasm, called movies, acting, special effects, camera work and everything else slip past the eyes and standard stretch rubber front and already obvious final annoying.

Of course, you can try to justify a movie that it came out in 1995. However, those years (early 90's) shot more spectacular, interesting, exciting and memorable movies at same level of development of cinema.

Zero dynamics, lethargy, boredom, sometimes theatrical, expressionless, with any way look and the excessive pride of Americans what their NASA fellow, and what they are a great nation.

Ended the Second World war, great minds super powers on different sides of the Atlantic came together in a friend the confrontation over the superiority in outer space. Not will 15 years as sentenced to 10 years for espionage Sergei Korolev and his team start in space the first Satellite. It will take another 4 and he is sent to space to the famous rocket P7  the East Gagarin. The genius of the Soviet people on top! And scientist Werner von brown and with him all the people of America left behind, yet...

The Americans are trying to make up for previous failures to develop a Lunar program. 1969, the spacecraft Apollo 11 delivers the crew on the lunar surface, all might have seen the famous images of Neil Armstrong takes man's first steps on the moon! The film is Ron Howard describes the flight of Apollo 13. Great actors such as Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Kevin bacon, bill Paxton on the show they able as actors great movie!

So given a launch, the rocket gives the Apollo 13 in deep space, the ship with a few problems gaining the required speed. The flight is on all of America, but the audience is not interesting, because Armstrong have been there, done coveted steps. Who needs repetition? Next command, major problems exist due to the leakage of oxygen, an explosion occurred and then they understand the moon they will never land, dreams of the captain of the ship are scattered. And here unfolds the main action of the film — operation return the team home.

The film is very exciting, keeps the audience in suspense for the entire film. There are excellent moments in the film, is particularly memorable, when Tom Hanks ' character flying over the Moon, presents itself on the surface and in full admiration watching the Ground there (by the way, in the clip of the Norwegian group A-HA, also flashed a moment). Apart from the fact that the filmmaker has directed the film very well, composer James Horner brought this band perfect condition. Will be held on 7 years and a bunch of Howard Horner still show yourself in  the"mind Games"!

To watch this film I made two reasons: Max Elliott Slade and Tom Hanks. Getting to view, I not knew the movie. In fact, so was pleasantly pleased. The movie was really good and looks at one breath. Very realistically shows the everyday life of the astronauts and the mission control center. But the film is not only it. He how people committed to and how come when faced with a choice: this the dream or life. To bravely withstand can not everyone. But the hero was able. Being in such appalling conditions, they still survived and returned home. In advance it was clear that all will end well, but how terrible it was to think that feel it all these people on the ground. Wives, children, parents, friends... It was the most successful failure. It is through such failures and moves the science. If not a problem some systems, not could others. This point is reflected in the final arguments of Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks).

Actually about the reason: just really love max Slade and Tom Hanks. There no tricks. Max starred in eight films, because I really wanted to see him game. And Tom Hanks — genius. Have no failed roles, he does not play and lives. This is my opinion. I advise everyone to watch, the film is very emotional and to the end keeps in suspense.
