Rating: C -- If it weren't for a mad bomber story line, it would be the perfect empty movie for airlines to show on long flights. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Yes, it may be junk, but it's irresistible junk, like cotton candy, chicken nuggets or Gilligan's Island reruns. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Before there was Airplane! there was Airport, a surprisingly engaging disaster drama that ignited a trend. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- On some dumb fundamental level, Airport kept me interested for a couple of hours. I can't quite remember why. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Old-fashioned and fairly stagy, but this great-granddaddy of disaster flicks has an undeniable old-fashioned charm.

Product Description:

One of the original "disaster" movies, this all-star nail-biter follows a series of emergencies at a large Midwestern airport on a snowy night. The weather's bad enough, but then a passenger threatens to blow up an inbound plane. Based on Arthur Hailey's novel. Sequels include Airport 1975, Airport '77 and The Concorde - Airport '79 and dozens of other catastrophe epics built from the same blueprint.

Plot Synopsis:

A crazed bomber aboard a jet threatens the passengers -- even as a raging snowstorm promises to shut down the airport and prevent rescuers from reaching the plane. As the large-scale disaster plays out, smaller personal dramas unfold, too -- crumbling marriages, unplanned pregnancies, and stowaways on the doomed plane.
