If they had somehow extended the plane crash scenes out for the entire length of the movie, it would have been a lot more interesting.
The copilot and his wife were incredibly annoying. I didn’t even like John Goodman’s character in this. I didn’t know that was possible!
Denzel Washington was decent, so I’ll only take off one point over all.
The shaking camera during the plane sequence was done to mimic the turbulence. Can’t fault a movie for that, now can I?
I’m taking a point off in the name of fairness, but all that fuss from Budweiser about them not liking their product being drunk (drank? drinked?) by a character behind the wheel was interesting, and shows that not all product placement is endorsed by the companies that make the products.
In a way though, non-solicited product placement is even worse, because it’s free advertising.
This film was so boring at times that it took me almost 5 hours to watch it because I kept pausing it to do other things. Still, the part of the movie that happens on the plane is good enough to sit through again.
