    "Based on a true story, this film has captured my imagination when I was young. It left me feeling insignificant due to the vastness of space. But then again, it also left me empowered and thinking that I could become anything I wanna be. The way Tom Hanks delivered the story of how he got lost after his fighter plane was damaged during the Vietnam War (in relations of course to how the Apollo 13 crew could get back to Earth) also gave me a glimmer of hope that anything is possible. Simple, yet effective performance. "

    "I thought people from NASA were just a bunch of geek sitting on their consoles each day thinking things up. This movie showed me otherwise and my respect for those people grew. The way they handled the Apollo 13 tragedy is simply fantastic. A lesser being would have cracked under pressure. Now I understand why they take things so seriously over there. KUDOS NASA!"

    "I think its a good movie and it is really interesting and maybe since I am not that into science I didn't like the movie (I'm sorry lol) I guess you just need to watch and see it for yourself, I mean if you like science and planets, you'll like it for sure. 😉😉😉"
