Trivia

Based on the real-life crash of Bashkirian Airlines Flight 2937 and DHL Flight 611. The incident occurred on July 1, 2002, when the two planes crashed into each other in midair over the town of Überlingen, Germany. See more »

Goofs

In the United States, the transition altitude is 18,000 ft. Flight levels, which are approximated altitudes based on standard air pressure, are only used above the transition altitude, as it simplifies operations at high altitude. However, under 18,000 ft, the actual altitude as read using the correct local air pressure is used instead, and expressed in feet, not flight levels. Therefore, an air controller would not ask an aircraft to descend to flight level 65, but rather ask to descend to 6500 ft. Correction: This statement is true for the United States, but not every country uses 18,000 ft as the transition altitude. Germany for example uses 5000 ft, and in Switzerland it's 7000 ft. So, issuing a clearance to FL 065 is correct depending on the country. This accident happened over Germany. See more »

One of Arnold's Best performances of his acting career
8 April 2017 | by stephenw-30180See all my reviews

I've read the other reviews and they range in numerical rating from 1/10 to 10/10. Does that say a lot about the Film itself, or the people reviewing the film? I say with confidence, the latter.

First, I understand people from around the globe use IMDb as it's the premier Movie information sight available on the net. However, please, if your going to write a review which the public will read to gauge whether or not to view a film, learn how to write with correct and coherent grammatical form. Much is lost if an opinion of the author does not know how to formulate a sentence....now that I've said that, on to the review.

In a nutshell, this is NOT a Schwarznegger superhero Conan the Barbarian type role for him. Nor does it resemble any of his early over the top massive budget roles in which his acting was never really anything to write home about.

This film however, depicts him in a real life situation of the most dreadful type. And I have to say I believe it to be one of, if not, the Best performance of his career. It's the first time I've ever seen him in a role that encompasses pain, anguish, self awareness and love. He is believable and does a great job in conveying that role. Scoot Mcnairy does a fine job as well as the "so called" villain. Actually, there are no villains in this film. It is a tragic human interest movie and a trifle hard to watch. No spoilers here.....along with Schwarznegger producing this film, Darren Aranovsky did as well. For those who gave this film a terrible review, you are entitled to your opinion. That said, know this! Darren Aranovsky would not lend his name in ANY capacity to a film that he would view as garbage, as one reviewer called it.

My recommendation is to watch the film and see for yourself. It is by no means a "feel good" movie. It is a well put together film with a solid story to tell. IMO, whether or not an Arnold fan, it is worth the 90 minutes as it does what a good film should do....it moves you.
