The story line is interesting, if somewhat improbable. Some would say down right impossible. But that should not detract from the film. It is no more improbable than the story lines of any adventure movie - James Bond, for example - or many of the fantasy films that are so popular these days. So we should not judge the film on how realistic we think it may or may not be, but on how entertaining it is.
I found "Final Decent" to be very entertaining. It had action; it had romance; and it had suspense. In fact, I would call it the best of the Airplane disaster movies. That's enough for me. I liked it. And I am saddened that it was never available commercially.
Where's the DVD?
