    It had been less than a year since man first walked on the moon, but as far as the American public was concerned, Apollo 13 was just another “routine” space flight – until these words pierced the immense void of space: “Houston, we have a problem.”  

    Ron Howard directs Academy Award&reg-winner Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris in a riveting suspense-thriller from Imagine Entertainment. Stranded 205,000 miles from Earth in a crippled spacecraft, astronauts Jim Lovell (Hanks), Fred Haise (Paxton) and Jack Swigert (Bacon) fight a desperate battle to survive. Meanwhile, at Mission Control, astronaut Ken Mattingly (Sinise), flight director Gene Kranz (Harris) and a heroic ground crew race against time – and the odds – to bring them home.  

    It’s a breathtaking adventure that tells a story of courage, faith and ingenuity that is all the more remarkable because it is true!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Quality The 4K version of Apollo 13 is a good example of how older movies do not transfer well to 4K. Heavy grain really dates this movie and the HDR is very heavy making a lot of the scenes extra dark in comparison to the plain old Bluray variety. Don,t waste your money on this 4K disc.
