Movie Reviews

We Have a Problem with This Documentary
TomAzon | United States | 08/14/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

""Apollo 13 - Houston: We've Had A Problem" has more flaws than the oxygen tank in the command module. First the music score is not only boring and hokey, it's annoying. I had to turn my bass down because of all the low tones in the music.

Second, it relies too much on slow-motion during just about the entire presentation and they have to tack-on corny music to go with it as if it were the second coming and not a NASA mission.

Third, there is no narration to speak of. It would have been much better had Jim Lovell had narrated the whole thing instead of the director only relying on mostly black & white footage.

The features section has a speech by Jim Lovell.

I would recommend this only for the sake of having plenty of original footage. Otherwise save your money and get the two-disc 10-year anniversary edition of the "Apollo 13" movie which is loaded with features."
