Factual Correction of Previous Comment From Others
23 July 2005 | by (Rochester, NY, United States) – See all my reviews

Contrary to the comment of rps-2, flight 007 DID indeed originate from JFK. I don't know where RPs-2 got the idea it was Toronto.

I happen to have been on that flight both in-bound (to United States) and out-bound (to Soeul, then Hong Kong) many times. My last time was just 2 flights before that incident.

I cannot yet comment on the overall factual accuracy of the movie, as I still am unable to obtain it in DVD. However, I am absolutely sure that it does not "...deliberately falsifies a key fact."

The rest of this is just plain padding. This site would not allow comments less than "10 lines of text."
