Race To Space Film Review

""Race To Space" sat in my movie closet for close to 3 years before I ever even had thoughts about watching it. It seemed to take low-Joe-on-da-totem-pole priority next to other stuff I wanted to see. After watching the first five minutes, I realized what a terrible mistake I had made letting it sit there. Based on the true story of the United States' part in the Space Race, it retells the story of Ham, the first chimpanzee (or living creature for that matter) that the U.S. ever put in to space. This movie is not herky-jerky and while remaining historically accurate, tells this captivating and suspenseful story in a very entertaining way. I definitely recommend this for anyone wanting a good and entertaining film."
Does not respect the truth of the time,

"Sorry, but this varies from the truth of the time greatly in regards to the community and behavior of the community, painfully so. It is a fairly good whimsical tale, but the gross false painting of the time is actually insulting to the reality of what happened, and why-- and how things were done. ONLY if you view it as total fiction from an alternate universe is it acceptable; and that's a shame."
