Considering The Length & Cast, It's Very Disappointing
30 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a one-hour special episode that featured some big stars, this was very disappointing. In two words: too slow. Very little happens in this double-length show. It's mostly guys yelling and suspense what will happen to the gunner in this World War II American fighter plane. He is stuck inside and the landing gears are blown to bits. The only thing they can do is land the heavy plane but our boy will gets smashed in his little Plexiglas bubble at the base of the plane. How can the boys save this kid?

The suspense is drawn out for the entire hour and it's too long. This would have made a fine regular half-hour show. Much of this material wasn't needed.

It had the usual different kind of ending, which is the nature of this TV show. It looks like a straight drama-adventure until the finish. The only thing of interest, I found, was seeing a very young Keifer Sutherland, who almost looks like a high school kid. Kevin Costner was still fairly young but looks like the guy we know from "Field Of Dreams" which was made perhaps four years after this TV show. Sutherland, however, looks a lot younger than we know from his movies and "24" TV career.

Half of these "Amazing Stories" I would watch a second time, but not this one.
