Should've been a dorama series.
23 May 2009 | by (Tokyo / Toronto) – See all my reviews

A fun and exciting movie about one particular ANA flight from Haneda Airport to Honolulu. Overall, it was a very fun and exciting movie, but I felt 103 minutes weren't nearly enough to summarize this story.

There were simply too many things happening with too many characters. We have the pilots, flight attendants, mechanics, flight control, weather control, and airport staff. Each with their own situations and problems to handle. I guess it shows that hard work of everyone, not only the pilots, are required for a smooth flight. However, the film ended before I really connected with any of the characters. The lead actor and actress' screen time and presence weren't much more than other supporting cast.

Ayase Haruka's acting was disastrous in this movie, she's simply not a light comedy material. Although the cast was loaded with big-name actors, it felt cheap and rushed, like a TV dorama series.

The production team did well to summarize the story the best they could in 103 minutes, and I thought the story was nice and characters were interesting. A fun watch-and-forget movie that would've worked much better as a dorama series.
