Most Intense Airplane Crash Scene in Movies
There are misfortunes that sadly happen, including airplane crashes. We do not want them to happen, but the reality is that although the plane is one of the safest means of transportation to travel, there is always a small risk of an accident. In the case of the Airplane, this minimal possibility can be tragic. From people who have truly experienced this tragic event, the moments before the crash can be a hell of emotions. To portray this on the screen is not such an easy thing; it needs not only good directing but also the effort of every person involved on the scene to create this intense atmosphere of agony. Which of these scenes do you think best portrays the emotional intensity of these tragic situations? Discuss here ______________________________________________________ Live Poll: Part VII
