    The review very accurately describes the plot and the highs, lows, and shortcomings of the film. The dialog at times is a bit dated, but all in all, it’s a mildly interesting film, but as the reviewer aptly points out, this not “Flight of the Phoenix”, and indeed, there is very little character development.

    The only reason I might consider purchasing the DVD, as opposed to watching for free when it airs on the AMC channel or elsewhere, would be to listen to the commentary. If you are an aviation enthusiast, or a film buff, or interested in post WWII era subject matter then the DVD may hold extra value for you. Otherwise, the average TV viewer may wish to save their money for another film.
