Movie Reviews

Good story but poor production.
Javier Lopez | Peru | 06/11/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I like movies about airplanes and because of that I have several of these movies and one of those is this one.
The cover and the tittle of the movie make you think it's good but there's nothing good in it.
The story is interesting but what makes the movie very bad, is the poor, poor production. The set that it's supposed to be a Boeing 747 with 400 people looks like a very small plane (you'll only see inside the airplane like 25 people during the whole movie). The special effects are terrible, you'll see the airplane fyling but no with a close image and you'll see it like for 2 seconds. The airplane that they use changes from name and colors all the time, then when something good is going to happen they just change the image and put the sound so they wouldn't make a scenery for that scene. Anyway if you like a good movie, just don't get this one, you'll get bored because as I said. The story is interesting but the special effects are so bad that you'll get bored.
Finally I'd like to say that I don't understand how Kate Jackson (Charlie's angels) acepted to be in this low budget movie with all the success that she had in her career."
Fun TV Disaster Thriller
DonMac | Lynn, MA United States | 04/29/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Definitely not a great film, but a fun one. A TV version of one of the Airport/Plane disaster flicks. Jackson is the head stewardess and surrogate mom and a lot of B-grade 70's and 80's actors make up the rest of the cast. Erik Estrada, Maureen McCormick, Ed Marinaro ... anyway a storm blows up and kills the cockpit folk, so it's up to Kate and Company to save the plane and passngers. They have altitude and oxygen problems, gally fires, stray vicious dogs, rolling leaking cars and criminals all on the loose. BUT - it is definitely entertaining and rewatchable. Silly, yes, thrilling, at times, and so over the top. You almost can't help yourself in getting caught up in all the drama. A fun TV flick."

"Upon reading some of the other critical reviews from viewers, I tend to agree with some of the things that were said. On the other hand there was a good cast, and the movie was entertaining none the less. I watched the last half of the movie on Lifetime Movie Channel, so I missed the beginning. I have seen a lot worse movies that were rated higher. I was wondering if some of the people who submitted their reviews took the time to review, and edit their reviews. It's funny that those who are so critical on other matters can't correctly spell the simple words, or take the time to edit what they write. For those reading the reviews, please read through some of the reviews. It will make up for what you might have missed in a movie being reviewed!"
Do Not Expect Too Much
Mercy | Osaka, Japan | 01/22/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"You may enjoy this movie, if you know nothing about the airplane, or if you are extremely weak for machinery.
This movie has no reality from the beginning to the end.
Plot is poor.
I do not recommend this."
