Entertaining adventure trip
11 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

My expectations were fulfilled and even more than I thought. There were many plots and some funny dialogs where I laughed very much. There is the crashed airplane midst in the desert with the passengers facing many obstacles to solve. This DVD invites you to spend a great and unforgettable moment with your home cinema and I will add it to my best of collection. The picture is superb and the story is perhaps very simply but the more interesting is how the passengers plan their survival. Then I liked very much Giovanni Ribisi that convinced me definitely. I don't remember every detail from the original one of 1965 but I think it seems to be more realistic than the new one. Why: in 1965 the special effects weren't so professional as in the last one. Please don't use too much CGI today and put therefore more original scenes in the story. Anyway, director John Moore succeeded again to create a good mix of action, adventure and special effects. My rating: 7/10. If you are interested in another survival movie don't miss the true story ALIVE.
