Goofs

The local tower controller is seen handling aircraft well outside of the tower's airspace. Generally, the tower handles traffic within a 5-mile radius of the airport and altitudes of up to 4000 feet. While it makes for a better visual to have the background of lights and runways, in reality, the flights would have been handled in a dark, dimly lit room in the TRACON. See more »

Possibly Schwarzeneggers Best Performance
7 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Arnie is back in possibly the best performance of his career.

Plot In A Paragraph: Two strangers' lives become inextricably bound together after a devastating plane crash.

I really enjoyed it. I'd go so far as to say it's safe as to say it's the best Arnie led movie since his return for politics. It's certainly his best performance. It's a performance lots of people doubted he had in him. I love the big guy, but I've often thought he never really had any acting talent, and he got by on his charisma and surrounding himself with top talented directors. I think it says something that I thought his best performance was in Terminator 2, as a non human. Here he absolutely knocks it out of the park, he is superb and utterly heartbreaking! Scott McNairy is equally as good as The air traffic controller Jake Baonos. He certainly is not the villain of the peace. There was only one bad guy in the movie as far as I'm concerned and he was a smarmy lawyer played by to arrogant perfection by Kevin Zegers without an ounce of empathy in him.

If I have once complaint, it's about the movies ending, which I one ruin here. All in all a compelling, well acted, well made movie. Give me thanks like this over yet another Fast & Furious or Transformers movie any day!! I hope this leads to more dramatic work for Arnie, as he shows here he has it in his locker to surprise people. I hope they take notice.
