A Simple Advertisement
30 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

This film is nothing more than an advertisement for Boeing. I was hoping to learn about the 787 and the Airbus A380, but this film only made casual reference to the A380, and it was a clear attempt to advertise for Boeing. More than that, we learn only little about the 787. The story is difficult to follow, the acting scenes are boring and insulting to the viewer, and the CGI graphics are ridiculous. Boeing feels threatened by Airbus, and rightly so, Airbus, at the moment, builds better airplanes. I think Boeing's executives would be much better off trying to develop better airplanes rather than attempting act in propaganda films.
