Movies are fiction. Doesn't matter if they say quote based on true events unquote.
From what I heard from the astronauts and engineers that lived Apollo 13, it was mostly an accurate portrayal of the events. The one "liberty" that Ron Howard admits to is the raised voices and arguing on board Apollo 13. He said listening to the audio tapes and and reading the transcripts the astronauts were 100% professionals and kept emotion out of it until the chutes opened.

I will for sure look forward to seeing this move. Hanks is a great actor. I really hope to live a life where Tom Hanks never has to portray me in a movie.
