Movie Reviews

Laramie Movie Scope - 10/10 by Robert Roten It is about four kids who build rockets, but it is a lot more than that. It is about having the guts to go for your dreams and not worrying about what other people think.
Boxoffice Magazine - 10/10 by Annlee Ellingson A sweet yet sincere coming-of-age story about fathers and sons, communities pulling together and, above all, heroes.
Nitrate Online - 9/10 by Elias Savada ...one heck of a crowd pleaser, filled with humor, pathos, and intelligence.
Village Voice - 9/10 by Gary Dauphin A professionally crafted family film that reserves all its challenging moments for its characters, letting the audience bask comfortably in the approach of a predetermined warm and fuzzy ending.
Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Michael Wilmington With its lack of car chases, fist fights, and over-the-top melodrama, the film has to rely on solid acting, an intelligent script, and capable directing.
ReelViews - 9/10 by James Berardinelli Believable, subtle, and consistently intelligent!
DVDJournal.com - 9/10 by Mark Bourne ...plays like a TV movie made for everyone who subscribes to Reader's Digest. Still, its manipulations are sincere rather than cynical...
Internet Reviews - 9/10 by Steve Rhodes The upbeat film has a genuineness and poignancy that will touch your heart!
Flick Filosopher - 9/10 by MaryAnn Johanson I love movies at the end of which, as the credits roll and the lights come up, I'm sobbing my eyes out and smiling and declaring, "That was a great movie!" all at the same time. I needed two hankies at the end of October Sky.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert One of the best elements of the movie is in breaking free, he is respecting his father. This movie has deep values.
Mr. Showbiz - 9/10 by Cody Clark October Sky will go straight to the heart of any man who recalls looking up at the night sky as a boy and getting stars in his eyes.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 8/10 by Liam Lacey Now if that isn't an inspirational story, it's hard to know what is.
