#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Based on the true story of the ill-fated 13th Apollo mission bound for the moon. Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert were scheduled to fly Apollo 14, but are moved up to 13. It’s 1970, and The US has already achieved their lunar landing goal, so there’s little interest in this “routine” flight.. until that is, things go very wrong, and prospects of a safe return fade.
Plot: The true story of technical troubles that scuttle the Apollo 13 lunar mission in 1970, risking the lives of astronaut Jim Lovell and his crew, with the failed journey turning into a thrilling saga of heroism. Drifting more than 200,000 miles from Earth, the astronauts work furiously with the ground crew to avert tragedy.

Made Me Want To Study The Real Apollo 13 Astronauts
This was a very well-done true story of a space mission that came extremely close to being a disaster, but the astronauts miraculously made it home safely. Except for some language problems, it’s good storytelling and so interesting that it made me want to study the real Apollo 13 astronauts.
The movie is fairly long at 140 minutes and there is not much “action” but there is a lot of suspense and first-rating acting, both of which should keep anyone’s interest. Knowing this was a true story makes one all the more involved with it. You can usually count of Director Ron Howard putting out an interesting and well-photographed film.
What also was interesting to me, too, was to see these actors, most of whom usually play volatile characters- or did prior to this film – act in such low-key roles. I refer to Ed Harris, Gary Sinise, Bill Paxton and Kevin Bacon.
By the way, one of the young Lovell children was played by Miko Hughes, who became a co- star in a film – “Mercury Rising” – several years later.
For such a tense story, with these astronauts lives on the line, none of the astronauts or people at NASA or anyone’s family members are ever seeing praying throughout this ordeal! You can bet, in real life, a lot of prayers were answered on this mission.
Overall, this is good movie-making and recommended.
