How is this not higher? This is a great movie and the whole thing is based on Al Capone. This needs to be much higher.
I think October Sky is the best movie it was based in Coalwood,WV. The movie was about Homer Hickam and the rocketboys. That created a rocket that changed history especially for there town. Those who haven't watched it should. If you do email me and tell me what you think email@example.com
