Trivia

Upon arriving at the airport terminal, Roman bumps into a patron as he approaches the ticket counter. This was a cameo made by then Columbus mayor, Michael Coleman. See more »

Goofs

When Roman is standing at the grave site looking at the family marker, the grave is flat and the same color as the surrounding turf - it takes months, or even a year or more for the dirt to settle smooth and the grass to come back. See more »

Quotes

Roman: Maybe I should spend less time at the cemetery. The only thing is that Nadiya and Olena are there. They can't leave. So I go there and visit them, because... they can't go anywhere. They can't...

An story full of emotions, but lacking pace
8 April 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Arnie has done action, comedy, thrillers etc. All of these performances hinged on his biceps, accent and catchphrases. Unfortunately, his acting abilities have been...well...questionable. If he was ever put in the situation where he would need to put emphasis on a line that did not require shouting or without a gun in his hand, it was lost on the audience.

Since Arnie's comeback we have seen that he has gone back to much the same genres of movies, so I was dubious when I heard of the plot to this movie. A father losing his family in a plane crash and following the life that follows. It was too deep for Arnie, I thought. However, I was surprised to see the emotion he could portray in his character.

The premise of the movie was interesting, since it follows both the air traffic controller who is blamed for the crash and the father of two of its victims. It was interesting to see the similarities in the emotions they experienced throughout the movie. I thought the character progression was great. The problem I had was that the story progressed a bit too slowly for me. I understand that this is probably more 'real life', but in the context of a movie, I want things that gauge my interest and maintain it. Some scenes were unnecessary and some scenes could have progressed faster.

However, by the end, I did not feel cheated of my time and money. I would recommend this movie to you if you like Arnie and want to see something different. If you enjoy slow-paced movies. It made me realise I hadn't seen my family in a while during my time at university, so at least it got me to organise a meet up with them!
