Trying to squeeze 4 years into 90 minutesBy Stephen Lindsay from Northern Ireland , 05 Oct 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]With the emphasis initially on Brian Keenan's kidnap, we are gradually introduced to John McCarthy. Opposites at first, Keenan a staunch Republican, and McCarthy as the antithesis of everything Keenan despises.
Eventually they become friends, and the bond becomes solid, as they suffer many long hours in different locations.
One thing, Terry Waite isn't mentioned during the entire film, even though for some of the time, he was in the next cell.
Could have been better.

Blind Flight (2003)By a customer from London , 30 Oct 2005Not bad at all. The fact that it is a true story, makes it that bit more fasinating.
True StoryBy a customer from Northern Ireland , 14 Aug 2005No false Hollywood heroics. Slow, but very well acted. I take my hat off to the real guys who endured such terrible conditions for so long.
Bit of a letdown!By a customer from Cambridge, England , 04 Aug 2005Having read John McCarthy's book, which was a 'couldn't put it down' kind of a read I was really looking forward to watching this film. Some pretty good acting performances by the two lead characters, but generally this film was a bit of a letdown.It was very slow in places and although not a particularly long film, it felt too long!
