Beautiful images but disappointing if you expect to see airplanes
11 September 2016 | by jeje-noneSee all my reviews

This was quite a deception. I expected a documentary about airplanes, why they're magical, and some technology and technical stuff. You'll get none of this. What you get is some contemplative aerial views of why travellng around the world is great. It surely is great, even though showing the Trevi fountain surrounded by tourists is not the best way to depict it.

Some good points though. The first part does a fantastic job of reminding us how lucky we are to live in the early days of fast travel and how much the entire world has changed in the blink of an eye. Harrison Ford does a great job at narrating all of this.

Airplanes lovers will be left out in the cold.
