A wonderful, inspiring, & heartwarming film. It's nolstagic, well directed/written, & has an unforgettable and important story. What a film, and a criminally underrated coming of age film at that.

October Sky is an emotional drama that is fast paced and full of realistic characters and situations. It's story feels relevant even now. As much as the science and rockets are inspiring to watch, the brawl between Gyllenhaal and his father character is equally engaging.

A great story to tell with such power at a small standard and an uplifting, inspirational spirit into the heart, powered by the performances that are considered really good. (A-)

The film really stands for something. From the early stage Gyllenhaal proves he will become Hollywood next legend.

One can never forget about this movie once one has seen it. After all these years, the score still resonates in one's head along with the most inspiring story.
