Trivia

The last 20 minutes were filmed at the Mojave Air & Space Port in California. The airport is home to an aircraft "boneyard" where unwanted aircraft are placed in storage until sold or returns to service. Aircraft are also cut up for scrap here.

In the film you may notice a particular aircraft. A Boeing 767-200 last flown by Ansett Airlines. Ansett were an Australian airline until September 2001 when it filed for bankruptcy. The aircraft was registered as "VH-RMO" when flown by Ansett. Prior to Ansett, it was flown by Britannia Airways. The aircraft arrived at Mojave in June 2002 for storage. Parting out for scrap didn't commence until August 2004. See more »

Gets a two-thumbs up from me!
21 April 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Definitely worth renting! Good clean family entertainment. My 4 and 5 year-olds (and I) loved it. Kept them on the edge of their seats. I recommend parents sit with their younger children to watch this, as it can be quite suspenseful for them. It's not too often you can find movies that you can watch with your children, and so this is a rare find. Some of the acting / realism isn't quite there at times, or maybe is a little corny, but children don't seem to notice or care, they love it. Parts are predictable, but other parts are not - like trying to figure out who the good guys are and who the bad guys are. The movie doesn't have any really scary/creepy stuff, and so I doubt it will give children nightmares. It does inspire children to dream, which is something we need to encourage and foster more in our children. Rent and be blessed!
