| Good Late Late Show movie about pilots in the Great White North is the type of thing you'd stumble across and stay up all night watching
Red is a freight pilot somewhere in the North of Canada.He makes his living hauling freight by air all over the wilderness. He's a stand up guy in love with the local school teacher named Hillary. When Red's no good brother Paul comes North he starts up a competing business and tries moving in on Red's girl. Things get worse when Red's mechanic, and Hillary's brother, is killed in a plane crash. Hillary thinks its Red's fault. Will Red be able to win back his girl and put his brother in his place? I guess you'll have to watch the movie and find out.

This is a soapy melodrama about tough guys with a past fighting over business and a woman, but its a compelling movie that runs as long as it has to tell its story. Its small scale and efficient with some great scenery, some good performances and a plot that keeps you interested. Its the sort of thing that played in the wee hours of the Late Late Show after the main movies played but before the news or the farm report came on. The best thing that I can say is its the type of movie you'd stumble across on your way to bed and end up watching to the end (and then have stuck in your head as you tried to figure out what the movie you just saw was because you missed the opening credits)

If you want a good, but not great, movie that will keep you interested for an hours entertainment, this is the film to get. Definitely worth a bag of popcorn.
