Where Have I Seen This Before
26 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charles Durning is awakened by a terrible plane crash. When he investigates, he sees the ghosts of the crash victims, including the pilot. The house is on fire and there is devastation everywhere. The pilot keeps saying, "I had to take off. It was in the way." Shortly thereafter, he awakens in his bed. He investigates and there is no sign that anything ever took place. But he is convinced that he has been given a sign and it is his job to stop the flight. Of course, all the predictable stuff happens. He terrifies the departing flyers and ultimately gets himself arrested. It has a satisfying conclusion although I'm sure it's been used numerous times before. Nevertheless, Durning is a believable character. One has to look at this from a 1986 perspective because things have changed so dramatically.
