Many times a book does not translate to a film well. BUT! (spoiler note, I use one line from the film, not critical to the story)
First off, I am one of the rare pilots who loves this movie. I'm a 737 captain for a major airline in the USA. Also a flight instructor, an instrument instructor and multi engine instructor.

I've read the book and am glad the book and movie are so different. IN this way I get two amazing stories, but with that special flavor expressed in the title.

I won't describe the movie, others have done that. But if you are a pilot and don't "GET" this movie, you better take some more flying lessons.

I mean it. If you don't like the fictional airliner, well that' s fine.

Get over that part of it.

Here is a movie that actually talks about a rudder power switch!

I can also say that the cinematography is wonderful and the opening 12 minutes and last 10 minutes is the most amazing stuff I've seen. (short of reality).

So, see this movie. And shut off the damn bell.
