Embarassing cringe-worthy nonsenseBy Sandy Wilkinson from Fife, Scotland , 29 Sep 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]With a top cast and a budget larger than the national income of an African nation, I popped Flight of the Phoenix into the DVD player, releaxed back into my chair and waited to be impressed. Nevertheless, 'the best laid plans o'mice an' men gang aft a-gley'. Two hours of my life, which might better have been employed doing almost anything else, were spent watching one of the most cringeworthy films ever made. Scott Frank, the screenwriter, should shoulder much of the blame - the plot was 'flimsy', the characters 'two-dimensional' and the dialogue - well that was just embarassing. In short, it looks as if the writer of The Interpreter, mind-melted with an 8 year-old.
Avoid this film at all costs. You'll just encourage them.

Bit poopBy gianino (648 reviews) from London , 01 Mar 2013Ok I like Dennis (still hot for an old man) and Tyrese who is awesome and a very hot baby, and Giovanni Ribisi who is a very good actor and quite cute at times....plus Jared Padalecki is in this and he is a babe. However, this is not enough. The plot is flat and it's bit boring really. However, as I said before some of the boyz are hot...Tyrese in particular so at least there is something
Why remake this classic??By 44Marvin (2 reviews) , 08 Jan 2013Very average, not enough action by modern standards.
The original was better but then, so were most of the actors.
not as good as the original...By lastengland (105 reviews) from Winchester , 07 Mar 2012but James Stewart was much better. Still this wasn't that bad as remakes go........as for Tony Curran why is it he has the same fate in all the films I have seen him in - bit like Peter O'Toole!!!
Some bits were abit far fetched - would you go wondering off in the middle of the night in a desert not knowing where you were going just for a pee!!!!
The ending knowing what each survivor got up to was a good way to end the film - no sequel!
Could've Done BetterBy OddEyes (12 reviews) , 21 Jun 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI had expected to be better than it was but it was a complete disaster as films go. It had a great cast and I think some more could have been gotten from them as apart from some moments it was a bit slow.
The intial crash was great with the affects but in the end the racing away from smugglers or whatever they were just didn't feel quite right.
Plight of the PhoenixBy Robinski (180 reviews) from Glasgow , 11 Jun 2011Decent adventure story, with good performances by the cast, Giovanni Ribisi is probably the stand out, but there's nothing here to suggest it was worth while remaking the original, which is raised out of the ordinary by the sublime James Stewart.
