In the long shots of the Airspeed Ambassador outside the terminal the propellers can be seen slowly turning. The Ambassador was a piston engined aircraft, the props would not rotate slowly like a turbo-prop engine. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy Murphy: It's not about their memory. It's about showing who we are to the world, showing we'll not be bowed by tragedy. Because how we are in the future will be founded on how we behave today.

moving and well done
8 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

I have watched football (here we call it soccer) and know the passion other countries have for the sport. I know how people bond as well as become bitter enemies over teams. So this movie had to be made very carefully to show respect for a horrible tragedy that befell upon Manchester United that fateful night. I think, in my opinion, that it did just that. it was well made and well performed. Showing the proper emotion and heartbreak of the time. Not to mention the will and strong spirit of the fans, team and support staff. Unfortunately it takes a tragedy to bring people together it seems. This movie is right up there with the other sport greats for an inspirational, motivational, and uplifting movie. Very well done.
