I rented this movie last night, and found it to be very good. Even though I knew what the ending would be - I got caught up and was anxious toward the end.
Only one "name" person in it. The air traffic controllers play themselves. Amazing how many people behind the scenes were affected.

brink-,

I also would recommend it. I approached it with shaded eyes, afraid that it would be too emotionally draining, but found the focus to be on the chaos that surrounded the event, rather than on the passengers themselves. It's my understanding that the producers of the film previewed it with the relatives of those lost, and earned their approval.

Deb, I am de-lurking to agree with you. An amazing film, extremely well produced. As you say, although we all know the ending, it was weird how I found myself praying they would get into the cockpit in time. A fine tribute to some of the heros of that horrendous day.

Remember the movie last year "Open Water" since nobody survived the movie was supposition, which is exactly what would have happened with this one if they focused on the passengers. Nobody knew what really happened, just little bits and pieces not enough to make a movie. I was very impressed with the air traffic controllers.

Well Brink would be.

She fancies that anyone who can deal with the stress of being an air traffic controller may just be able to put up with her as well... :D

Whoops personal sledge...And what part of "not at all sorry" would that make me ? :D [img]tongue.gif[/img]
