26 May 2000 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

The other commentors have made entirely appropriate remarks about some of the virtues of this film, but for me the true power of this film is in the story of McBane learning, in the course of the investigation, about the true character of the doomed pilot.

Better late than never.
