On a red eye flight to Boston from LA 10 people wake up to a shock. All the passengers and crew have vanished. When they try to contact the ground they make no connections. They land the plane only to discover that things haven't changed. But its like the world is dead. No one is there, the air is still, sound doesn't echo, the food is tasteless.

In the novella, there is no wind, not even a light breeze when they are in Bangor. Since this was virtually impossible to execute for the movie they simply created dialogue to explain that even with a wind down here the clouds are not moving. See more »

The bottom line is, I believe, that we have hopped an absurdly short distance into he past. Say as little as 15 minutes and we're discovering the unlovely truth about time travel.

I enjoyed this despite some flaws. The acting is actually quite good. The story is engaging and interesting. I think it fulfills that childhood-like fantasy-'what would you do if you woke up and everyone had disappeared?' We see that here and it is well done.
There are some things that bothered me. True, when the plane is flying through the night sky you can see some blue screen around the edges of the plane and perhaps the stars don't appear too realistic. Also, I agree with one other member here regarding the blind girl. She does indeed have a habit of looking right at another actor while reciting her lines. She even runs into the arms of Patricia Wettig with perfect accuracy which is funny. I agree that her acting could have been better. Also, the Langoliers are animated and appear like walnuts opened up with chrome plated, shark-like teeth.
Despite the small production issues though I did enjoy this.
