Movie Reviews

Single feature
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 08/05/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It was not a wise move for FOX to juxtapose the 2004 FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX against Robert Aldrich's original classic from 1965. On its own the remake is an OK picture, but in comparison to its predecessor the newer version is a failure.

Seems to me the idea of a double feature is you watch two pictures in a row. Who is really gonna sit throught TWO "Phoenix"es, TWO "Alamo"s, TWO "Sabrina"s or TWO "Cape Fears" in one afternoon? Not I, and probably not you.

Let's call this what it is: a clean widescreen transfer of a great adventure story with a sterling cast, plus some modern throwaway with a single star and mostly nobodies in support.

FIVE stars for the '65 "Phoenix." THREE stars for the remake. Average: FOUR stars.
