October Sky is a sweet film with a great soundtrack and excellent performances.

October Sky is one of those cinematic gems that embraces the setting of a coal mine town and breathes a simple true story into it. It satisfies the thinker with good science yet fills the star gazer with wonder and hope for a brighter future. Not to mention the theme that pulls the entire story together.

.Great story of ambition and determination, exactly the film that any person should see. This is one of those films I put off for way too long and couldn't tell you why. Perfect filmmaking and one that pulls all the correct strings

The concepts and subject matter of the film are fresh and interesting, but the actual plot is just a retread of the things we see in pretty every movie.

One of my absolute favorite movies. The best part for me about this movie is the fact that the soundtrack has music from the time period instead of using modern music for a story from the 60's. Has the best soundtrack and score. Love, love, love it!

82% - Really ambitious film. This film has everything that it needs to be inspirational. Also, this is the perfect example that shows us that life is ours and we decide what we want to be.

I really enjoyed the movie because I know the place is represents. It was filmed in Tennessee because there were no places for the actors and crew to stay and the area is much rougher than depicted so there would not be enough space to make the movie. I would have done anything to get away from there.

Excellent biopic with a strong cast, follows a well worn path but with enough intelligence not to be too saccharin. Whilst the main story of a young mans battle to break the chains is great, the back story of working in the coal mine and its hardness is also gripping.

Emotional drama of self discovery and nonconformity with great performances and a truly heartwarming moral to the story.

That one movie that's plot is decent, the acting is decent, but the movie is great.
