I don't get it.... I just don't get it..Tom Hanks CANNOT ACT! Face it. Then breathe, then face it AGAIN!
This film shows it..
This is the prime example of what I hate with Hollywood. The pat yourselves on the back 'WE'RE AMERICAN, AIN'T WE COOL??' film.
This film was so sanctimonius and up it's own arse that I felt physically sick all the way through it. It relies on the hope that patriotism will make people give a shit about a couple of astronauts. I know I couldnt care less. What did they accomplish in the big picture?? Nothing! What was learnt from this experience? Nothing! So why make the film? I feel that this is full of false emotion and pretentious script.
Why did this film win oscars????
I admit, the direction was well executed, the sound was top notch as was the FX. but the script and acting were so false..I can only give this film the lowest rating possible.
