But I kept saying this movie being recommended. It has been nominated for the best picture academy award, it is on the '1001 movies you must see before you die' and according Roger Ebert, it is even best movie from made in the 80's,... read more

"10.24 Philip Kaufman's epic should remain as the best tale, best tribute to space exploration and the men and women that made them. A stellar cast that includes some of Hollywood's forgotten leading men, may there be a reunion in space."

Ei tämä tosin miksikään yltiöpatrioottiseksi tai ällöttävän sentimentaaliseksi hömpötykseksi yltynyt. Pikemminkin kaikki oli alivedettyä. Tapahtuvat eivät tunnu mitenkään järjettömän suurilta missään vaiheessa. Se ei ollut niin huono juttu. Heikompana asiana pidän kuitenkin vähäistä hahmokehitystä tai ylipäätään hahmoihin keskittymistä, kun kestoakin on"
