Flight of the Phoenix (2004)
If you keep up w/ all the flaws, you'll eventually lose count...
This movie, although shot reasonably well, is quite a test of viewer patience. There are so many things that don't add up you want to just yell at the screen during just about every scene. The characters are constantly facing cliché and drawn out conflicts that really hold no value to the narrative and ultimately only prolong the predictable and anticlimactic ending. I mean, the movie is called "Flight of the Pheonix" for crying out loud!! Do you think it's going to fly? Lets not pretend for even a moment that there is any genuine suspense here. Sure, some ancillary characters will get knocked off but nothing you don't see coming a mile away.. Honestly, the most difficult part to sit through is Giovanni Ribisi's performance... UCH, TERRIBLE... He has this horrible Hannibal Lecter schtick he's trying to pass off as eccentric but it really just comes off pathetic.. I spent the entire movie praying for someone to kill him even though I already knew it wasn't going to happen..
