Trivia

The aircraft used for the movie (bearing the colors of fictitious Paradise Airlines) is a Boeing 737-297 Advanced, registered as N70723. At the time, it was owned by Aloha Airlines (which is the airline involved in the incident of flight 243). That aircraft has been re-registered C-GCWJ and is flying currently (2005) for WestJet Airlines in Canada. See more »

6 April 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

We know the outcome from the title, but as another reviewer has said, that didn't harm Titanic! Unfortunately this awful film is harmed by the appalling acting - or lack of it. The characters are more like caricatures - I was waiting for the singing nun to appear with her guitar! I appreciate that the scriptwriters tried to use as much actual cockpit dialogue as possible, but otherwise this film is a string of cliches. I'm sure the real-life flight attendants were terrific but the actresses who portrayed them were dire, and quite unbelievable. The pilot was so laid back he appeared catatonic, and the co-pilot's hair acted harder than she did. A dreadful portrayal of what must have been a terrifying experience for all those involved, though you'd never know it from this film.
