"The Flight is a charming little movie, mostly about a boy and how he reconciles himself to the way his life is vs how he had wished it would be. Gabriel (Kristian De La Osa) is upset that his mother is about to marry a very stern man, Frank (Miguel Sadoval). When Clay (Dean Cain) crash lands in the field near his home, Gabriel is enamored with the prospect of flying and with the plane that seems to understand Gabriel's problems. Clay is young, handsome, and full of flying stories that fill Gabriel's head with new dreams of a dad who will be fun and loving. But like all tall, dark and handsome strangers, Clay has baggage with him that cannot allow him to fill the role Gabriel wishes. As this all works out, Gabriel comes to see the softer side of Frank and to understand himself better. Although this is billed as a Dean Cain film, his role is secondary to the story of Gabriel. It is a sweet coming of age film and Dean Cain does a credible job as the dashing young pilot, but the film doesn't really showcase his talents. If you are a Dean Cain fan, I would recommend "No Alibi" over "The Flight". If you are looking for a coming of age film, you will enjoy this one."

"This is a great family film. A great example of independent film making and definately worth seeing. However, this is the American release of 'Flight' (same movie different title). Save some money and order 'Flight'"

"That's exactly what this great family film does. Winner of the prestigious Hollywood Film Festival award for "BEST FAMILY FILM," Flight of Fancy fulfills the dreams and imagination of the viewer like a jaunt through Alice's Wonderland. Heartfelt and warm, this film will have you wishing for more, and loving every minute of its splendid story.
In a word: OUTSTANDING!"
