Movie synopsis
Originally a 1965 Jimmy Stewart vehicle, this FLIGHT gets a rough and ready updating for the new century, with the stalwart Dennis Quaid now inhabiting the title role. He's a pilot on a routine trip out to investigate some remote oil rigs in the Gobi Desert, but things go wrong and he makes a crash landing in the middle of nowhere. For him, and the men along for the ride, a slow, tortured, thirsty death seems certain, unless the plucky mechanic in the crew (Giovanni Ribisi) can design a whole new plane from the wreckage. As with the original, this is a manly adventure of rugged survival and mechanical ingenuity, only this time there's a woman on board, Kelly (Miranda Otto) who generates some romantic sparks. Some of the other survivors are played by: Tyrese Gibson, Sticky Fingaz, Bob Brown and Kirk Jones. The men and one woman have to tangle with murderous desert raiders and numerous sandstorms in addition to the frequent squabbling amongst themselves. Director John Moore gets a lot of mileage out of the desert backdrop and Ribisi is solid as the mechanic with a troubled past. It was produced by William Aldrich, whose dad Robert directed the Stewart original. Edward Burns (THE BROTHERS McMULLEN) co-wrote the new screenplay.

Flight of the Phoenix

I really enjoyed this movie. The actors are well chosen, all play their parts great.

Dennis Quaid plays a pilot who has to pick up an oil rig team in the middle of the Gobi Desert. But things start to go wrong and he has to crash land in the desert. They hold out hope that someone will find them, but a mechanic believes he can design a new plane from the wreckage. They begin building it, but they have to be careful to ration the remaining food and water properly. They have to also deal with sandstorms and some murderous desert raiders along the way.

The cast is: Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson, Miranda Otto, and Giovanni Ribisi.

A definite must have.

Decent remake of a Great Jimmy Stewart Film

If you have ever seen the original, you will be underwhelmed be this film. Don't get me wrong, this is a good film! Dennis Quaid, a fantastic actor, does a great job as the lead character, the pilot. Hugh Laurie, one of my favorites, and an extremely versatile actor, turns in a yeoman performance. The story is good, and sticks fairly close to the original, a true blessing! The problem is, one has to wonder why this film was necessary. In my mind, If your going to do a remake, you need to make it better, or at least, offer the viewer something to make it remembered above or beyond the original. A prime example would be "The Fly". Same basic premise as the original, but updated and fresh, so as not to draw direct comparison. Both were great movies, (though I'm still a fan of the original), alike, and yet vastly different, but both quality movies. Unlike "House on Haunted Hill" that kept the same premise, in a totally different story, like "The Fly", but the remake was a really bad story, and as such a really bad movie. "The flight of the Phoenix" was basically the same story, thus enjoyable, but how do you propose to out perform the cast of the original? James Stewart, Sir Richard Attenborogh, Peter Finch, Ernest Borgnine, and George Kennedy. So many stars, George Kennedy, a major star in his own right, barely got creditis, and was almost like an extra. Virtually the same story, Inferior cast compared to the original, and really, no great improvement in cinematography, or effects. Like most copies, they are never as good as the original.
If you haven't seen either one, then you will find this an enjoyable film, and well worth watching, but I urge you to then see the original, ot to forgo this altogether, and just see the original. If you have seen the original, don't waste your time, re watch the original, and have a great night with a great movie

Review For: Flight of the Phoenix (DVD, 2005, English Widescreen Version)

Great Action!
Dennis Quaid is great! Also is a good family movie, my kids loved it!

In Mongolia, the test well of an oil field is shut-down by the company headquarter in Atlanta, and a plane piloted by Captain Frank Towns (Dennis Quaid) is sent to bring the workers back home. While flying over a storm, the plane crashes in the Mongolian desert. When they realize that they will not be rescued, they decide to build a new plane from the wreckage of the old one.

Flight of the Phoenix

This gives a full screen to those of us who prefer this picture: BUT this portrayal pales by comparison to the Jimmy Stewart version. It's just no match for Stewart's; and all I do when watching this full screeener is wish I were watching the other one.
Compare yourself: story and happenings are changed from Steward, they are less real, and its just "NO GOOD".

Flight of the Phoenix (Blu-ray Disc, 2009)

I'm a Pilot I flew in the Viet Nam War as a Bird Dog Spotter Pilot, so I love anything to do with Flight. This is an excellent remake of a Classic Film, and the Actors, especially Dennis Quaid and Tyrese Gibson, make you feel like you are there with them. I had this movie on DVD and upgraded to Blu-ray.
