Bill C’s Review – 3.5 out of 5
Man on A Mission: Richard Garriott’s Road to The Stars is a documentary about Richard Garriott’s visit to the international space station as one of the first space tourists. He paid the Russians $30 million to take him up on a Soyuz rocket. I saw a special screening that included a Q+A with the director and producer. It’s an entertaining movie that gives good insight on Richard’s preparation and his visit to the space station. Richard also left his camera on to get some interesting footage during the re-entry and landing. In addition to Richard the movie features several interesting characters (including his retired astronaut father).
This movie opens in N.Y. next week and in Austin the following week. Richard will be at the Austin premiere (he lives in Austin).
This is a must see for anyone with $30 million considering a space trip and recommended for others just interested in the space program from afar.
As tis has not opened in New York Bill I. has not had a chance to review this one.
