  • Unexpected bit of fluff

    Well, it wasn't The Right Stuff or Apollo13, but for being based upon a ridiculous premise, it was actually a good movie with surprising attention to detail.

    My family had so much fun watching this movie. We laughed, cried and at one point even cheered! This film did not get much hype, but it is worth the purchase. The director took a common, simple story and made it seem so fresh and new. I cannot leave out the contribution of the cast which included great actors who helped tell this story with great skill. Do yourself a favor…do not miss this movie!

  • Awful

    By rocketJoe
    This movie is really bad. They try to align with a previous space (Mercury) program, but it comes off worse than a Saturday morning cartoon. Don't waste your time.
  • Great Family Movie!

    When I watched this I was amazed on how well they made this movie! It's a great movie to watch with the fam! I enjoyed it a lot and it is a great motivation on chasing your dreams and pursuing them and even if you fail at it don't give up because there's always a chance to try it again!

    I love how Farmer puts his mind into training to be an astronaut. (SPOILER) I sort of feel bad for him because no one believes in him, put he makes it to space.
