Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

A nearly-but-not-quite fascinating American TV movie, starring ex-Charlie's Angel Cheryl Ladd and centring on the crash of a plane that goes down with no clear explanation. The in-flight scenes avoid most of the clichés of the airplane disaster genre, but the attempt to solve the mystery of the film's title gets a spot mired in the excessive detail provided about the life of one of the crash's two survivors. Philip Saville, the film's British director, made a better and very different film the previous year called Fellow Traveller, but this is also perfectly respectable fare.
