One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. “Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box”.

It was the seventh manned mission in the American Apollo space program and the third intended to land on the Moon.
The craft was launched on April 11, 1970, but the lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded two days later, crippling the service module upon which the Command Module depended.
The crew encountered a great hardship caused by limited power, loss of cabin heat, shortage of potable water, and failure of the carbon dioxide removal system.
What will happen to the astronauts?
Even if you know for sure that the crew returned safely to Earth on April 17, 1970, you will be certainly fascinated and thrilled again through the struggles the crew and the staff on ground have experienced.
