Sometimes VIOLENCE isn't the only cruelty...
9 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

…perpetrated on children. More often than not it's simply a series of gross misrepresentations of reality. Packaged in a 'nifty' kids' format (as so many others in the genre) this film does just that. From the head-phone-less 777 pilot who reads a 'newspaper' in the cockpit (folded, read from the hand with less than serious attention, an en-route flight chart is hardly a suspect here; and taking off his glasses in the direst emergency during the film doesn't help) to the ridiculous time-segment distortions, children are given the impressions that not only does everything happen in slow motion in the world, but that 1) professionalism, 2) today's technology, and, 3) emotional stability – among countless other real-world scenarios requiring mature judgment - can be plucked out of the air and bent for their own use simply because they think it so (Hollywood: guilty as charged).

Parents, try this at home: give your offspring a good dose of REALITY during the viewing of this flick (put the recorder on 'pause' at the appropriate moment and MAKE IT SO). It may consume some precognitive time --- on your part. There's nothing wrong with fantasy, just make sure your kids know the difference. And, FYI, it's one of the main reasons English-speaking children fall so far behind many nations of the world in high-school and college aptitude. We're not only losing our engineers, teachers, artists – and yes, dreamers – for the same reasons, we're losing parentage.

FANTASY: 10 --- REALITY: 1, for an HGN rating – Hollywood Gross Negligence. PS/yes, I've raised children (5) – they're all out of college, doing well and having payed their own way; they know 'the difference' and I didn't pay a dime, just a lot of attention
