Arguably, the moon landing is one of man's greatest achievements, but in terms of human intelligence, teamwork, and determination, the Apollo 13 mission takes the cake. In Apollo 13, astronauts Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks), Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon), and Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) are traveling to the moon, inspired by the incredible mission with Neil Armstrong. The group journey to space, and during a routine maintenance check as requested by Mission Control, an explosion occurs, and the crew are now left with a damaged spacecraft. The remainder of the film highlights the efforts (and ultimate success) of the Mission Control Center to safely bring the men home. If "Houston, we have a problem" and "failure is not an option" are in your vocabulary, you can thank Apollo 13!
