An excellent movie about a real life air disaster
12 November 2001 | by (Newark, NJ) – See all my reviews

I wish people would stop writing comments about how stupid or unbelievable the endings to movies like this are. This movie was about a REAL EVENT, and people are writing reviews about how the title gave away the ending, or how there were too many scenes of the pilot getting her hair mussed in the wind. This movie tried, to the best of their ability, to recreate a real disaster. I think that they did an excellent job with this movie. No small detail was left out. They even tried to use, word for word, what was said between the pilots and the air traffic controllers.
