Freefall
18 September 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What a brilliant performance by Jaclyn Smith Renee Brennan, It's such a shame this movie was not promoted as it could have been a hit in my opinion Jaclyn's charter of Renee Brennan is in my eyes her best ever performance since "Charlie's Angles" . Jaclyn character is a very strong minded woman who is still coming to terms with a family tragedy of her own whilst trying to stop Hannes Jaenicke's character of Michael Ives of his revenge on Trans Regional Airlines.

Jaclyn should have at least been a contender for an "Emmy" and an "Oscar" award for best actress as this shows people that Jaclyn has come a long long way from her beginnings in Television commercials to today, I recommend this movie to any one at all I have watched it myself countless number of times.

After watching this move the amount of times I have watched it I have even picked up a few small hick up's in the film itself and will share them with you

!: At 16 Minutes 51 Seconds through the movie we see the hotel where a press conference for flight 662 crash is being held just before we see Chad Everett Richard Pierce we see the outside of the hotel witch is no where near to the area in where flight 662 came down the hotel it self is actually the hotel situated at Lake Louise in Alberta Canada

2: At 28 Minutes 30 Seconds we see the cleaning of flight 795 passenger/mad man Hannes Jaenicke Michael Ives Is coming down from in side the ceiling of the air craft, If you look close enough at the rear right hand side of the panel that is being closed you see Hannes Jaenicke Michael Ives getting a helping hand in closing the panel

3: After the service for flight 795 we see Jaclyn Smith Renee Brennan, Bruce Boxleitner Mark Ettinger & Hayden Christensen Patrick Brennan getting into a car to leave then the camera pans on to Hannes Jaenicke Michael Ives sitting in a car witch a gadget with is later explained by Scott Wentworth Agent Scott Wallace as a 15 second delay unit to completely shut down the car's computerized systems for a 15 second period the start of the period is at 20 Minutes 21 Seconds and ends with the car crashing into a pumpkin display at 20 Minutes 53 Seconds, Well when I was at school in Mathamatics that time frame is a lot longer the 15 seconds
