No kidding! When that ended I turned to the wife and said, “I’m never flying again.”
Very enjoyable, and for the longer than usual movie, I wasn’t bored at all.
But tell me; how is it that a car traveling at 50 miles an hour takes longer to stop than it took that plane, with very little damage? I don’t want to nitpick, but when that wing hit the ground first, all hell should have broken loose. Instead, we have scrapes high on the fuselage that should be impossible given the fact that the wing is still partially attached, and only one crack in the entire fuselage. Take that baby to PepBoys and it’ll be good to go in a week.
I would have preferred a more realistic crash, not a fender-bender.
