The story of one of our most infamous disasters of all time. Deals with the events leading up to the failure. Good historical piece.

Movie Reviews

A Made for TV Movie with at least some merit.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Challenger disaster was an emotional letdown after years and years of space successes. Suddenly, what had seemed routine was demonstrated to be not so routine after all.

Roughly four years after the fact this made for TV movie came out and I remember watching it with interest at the time. Peter Boyle's portrayal of Roger Boisjoly, the Morton Thiokol engineer that had opposed the launch of Challenger, was the high point of the movie for me.

Karen Allen played an effervescent Christa Mcauliffe. Upon my first viewing I was convinced that her portrayal was hopelessly idealized portraying Mcauliffe as a self sacrificing super-teacher but I have since learned that in real life Christa Mcauliffe was in fact much like the person portrayed in the movie.

As long as one remembers that this is a docu-drama with some dramatic license employed the movie remains enjoyable in spite of being a bit sappy in places. The subject matter is something I think is very worthwhile and I appreciate that the story has been told and preserved in the form of this movie."
Very interesting look into a part of history.

"I think this a great movie that gives you a chance to see the crew from a personal point of view. Also all the mistakes NASA and Morton Thiacal made are in this movie. The cast is great and makes me hungry for more information and insite on this tragic event in history."
