"The Right Stuff" will endure as the more ambitious movie, but this book-faithful, 2-hour team effort shrewdly keeps its eye on the ball.

Ron Howard's film of this mission is directed with a single-mindedness and attention to detail that makes it riveting.
Perhaps the most impressive feat of this film is sustaining white-knuckle tension even though the chain of events is well-known.
It's a nail-biter and knuckle whitener of the first rank: a super real life techno thriller that reduces the fantasies of Tom Clancy and his clones to ground zero.
Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, and Kevin Bacon try to get inside the skins of these space-age pilot jocks, but the roles, as written, don't give them enough to work with.
