A mammoth disappointment
11 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Like another reviewer I looked forward to the debut showing on CBC with much anticipation -- only to be horribly let down. For it to have been any more low-budget they'd have to have shot it in a Wal-Mart parking lot. (The producers apparently couldn't even afford to have the shoulder-patches properly sewn onto immigration agents' uniforms, for heaven's sake.) The mostly unknown actors all seem to be doing their best but it's nowhere near adequate to overcome the unseemly directing that focuses too much of the action on all the wrong things. There are many huge gaps in the storyline, and candidly I am mortified to think that there could have been as little communication between Canadian officials and airline flight crews, and between our federal government and people in Gander, as this movie appears to suggest. The sequencing makes local officials look like complete boobs (e.g., the mayor and his minions rushing around madly to local fast-food outlets, ordering massive quantities of burgers and fried chicken to feed the throngs of passengers -- many hours before they were even permitted to begin disembarking from their planes.) I certainly hope our national broadcaster didn't waste too much money on this bomb, because it does no service to Canadians who should expect a potentially very interesting story to be properly told.
