Reading some of the reviews here, I don't understand why a lot of people do not like the 2004 version of this film. Granted, I have never seen the original, so I can never make the comparison. Nevertheless, "Flight of the Phoenix" is still a very enjoyable film.
After a devastating plane crash in the Mongolian desert, the survivors of the crash must band together to build a new plane from the wreckage. But with a limited amount of water and food, their time is slowly running out.
Sure, the film is predictable, but the story kept me interested. Some of the effects in the opening scene of the sandstorm that brings the plane down, were awful. However, don't believe all the bad reviews here. If you liked previous disaster type flicks, I am sure you will enjoy this one.
Definitely worth the rental, and because of this one, I will definitely be on the lookout to see the original.
