    Loved the movie! It's fast paced and because it's based on a true story, the movie flows well without anything being forced into the storyline. The acting, cinematography are all good. Very entertaining and definitely highly recommend it!

    Probably about as accurate at portraying China as Hollywood is at portraying the US. Pretty hokey overall but some interesting moments.

    Don't trust the score (currently 96%) here. It seems that there was a campaign (likely originating in China) to inflate the score. Notice that the majority of the 4- and 5-star reviews were all submitted days apart. This is nowhere near a 96% movie (or even a 75% movie; I wouldn't be surprised if those critic reviews were bought, too). It's not an awful movie, but it's not very good, either. It stretches out a thin script with melodrama and sentimentality and ends by naming China's government agency in charge of civil aviation as one of the story's heroes, with a touted accident rate of 1/11th the global average (just like their reported laboratory accident rate, no doubt). If you are just really craving an airline disaster flick, it may satisfy that craving, but you shouldn't look at the scores and reviews and think that this is a really good movie that you shouldn't miss. I suggest that most people skip it.

    Mediocre disaster movie. No character is interesting. The English title is more appropriate than the original Chinese title.

    What a wonderful surprise this movie was I was a little bit weary about it being in Mandarin and watching subtitles- but because this film is based off of a true story it was very compelling. This film takes you on a journey of a day in the life of a pilot and the crew from takeoff to landing and the incredible true story of one captain and the crews courage to get through impossible odds
