There were a few characters in Apollo 13 who showed excellent leadership efforts. For this discussion, I will focus on the character Jim Lovell. Throughout the entire film, Lovell had many adversaries. Lovell was extremely passionate about walking on the moon, unfortunately that was no longer the mission. Three weeks before the launch, Jim Lovell was in his son’s room explaining what happened between the three astronauts and the fire. Jim’s son looked up to him and admired him. When explaining to his son the lost, Lovell was very genuine. He showed great self-confidence in his up and coming mission, joking with his son that he would land better than Neil Armstrong. Lovell didn’t want to worry his son, or scare him for the launch approaching.
