Aviation creepy
15 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To start, I am not part of the family/friends/crew blitz of reviews and message posts we all have to sort through in our research of movies and docs.

This was really fascinating! I am an aviation nerd and I assure you, it doesn't get more dramatic than in the cockpit of an airplane that is in crisis. I have long been obsessed with cockpit voice recordings and I love the fact that the director(s) used them word for word. The sets are a bit low rent, but the recordings are so intriguing you hardly notice.

If you love shows about airplane accidents or other aviation related media, CVR is well worth a look. 6/10
