Hallmark's "Final Approach" was one hokey production...
24 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

What a crock of crap this movie was ! If I were to sit here and list all of the inconsistencies in this movie it would take up dozens of typed pages... Just to name a few though... Do you really think that in the wake of the blunders made at Waco that the FBI agent would have been given the OK to "go in" and take out the bad guys with a simple request and OK over the phone ? And do you think they would have done so with one of their own agents inside and take the chance that he would have been killed ? Do you really think he would have been canned simply for punching a fellow agent one time ? How did they get a NUCLEAR device onto a commercial airliner post 9-11 ? How did they get SO MANY weapons aboard a commercial airliner post 9-11 ? Although the pilot didn't have the nerve to start dumping fuel, and the stewardess did, how long was the pilot going to wait until he told someone since it was the bad guys who noticed the warning light for low fuel was on ? Does anyone realize there are no airports that limit the traffic that can land to "single engine" ? If thats the case does that include ALL single engine aircraft, from a Cessna all the way up to an an F-16 Fighter aircraft ? Thats Ridiculous term that is totally nonexistent in the real world... And that a small airport out in the middle of nowhere would have a tower with air traffic controllers stationed there with the radar scopes seen in the background is even more ridiculous ! And here the 'civilian' thats landing the plane waits until their almost ready to land before lowering the landing gear ? A regular pilot would have had it lowered as soon as he started his approach or before. And how about the fact that the "single engine airport" just happened to have a set of boarding stairs that were large, and tall enough to fit a wide body airliner ? Wouldn't the inflatable chutes at the emergency exits made for a better effect ? I know its only a movie as well as the fact that I'm sure they had a limited budget, but it was like a bunch of school kids were running the show when you consider all of the goofs and inconsistencies the movie contained. The people at Hallmark need to realize that the watching public expects more from such a production then the half hearted attempt they aired on their fine channel. There were TV shows from the 1960's that were more believable then this hokey show of crap ! They can do better, MUCH BETTER...
