Director Andrew Lau's cinematic portrayal of the most miraculous emergency landing in the contemporary history of Chinese aviation.
The actual incident occurred on May 14 (Monday) 2018 morning at 30,000 feet on Sichuan Airlines flight 3U8633 from the southern city of Chongqing to Lhasa.
About 40 minutes after the Airbus A319 flight took off, the cockpit windshield shattered and flung the aircraft into a state of low pressure with a temperature at minus 30 to minus 40 degree Celsius over the Tibetan Plateau.
The co-pilot was sucked halfway out of the cockpit window and all things went down.
Many devices were damaged, communication with control tower broke down, passengers began losing consciousness with thin oxygen, and an enormous storm was awaiting right in front. The clock was ticking and strong-willed Captain Liu Chuan Jian was determined to get out of danger and bring everyone home safe...

Excellent movie about workings of an airplane and airport

Story: 4 | Acting: 5 | Visual: 4 | Music: 4 | Overall: 5

This is a movie fictionized about China's real life Sichuan airplane incident that survived from a damaged cockpit window that nearly dragged the copilot out of the airplane, and managed to land without any casualties. It showcase how an airline works and how airport air traffic controller handles an emergency. It is pretty realistic. Worth to see. Initial plot is pretty usual and uneventful. After that, strong dramatic plots, both in the cockpit and in the cabin. I'll let the rest for you to see. Lol

An emotional drama

Story: 4 | Acting: 4 | Visual: 4 | Music: 4 | Overall: 4

A movie and it was inspired by a true story of Sichuan Airlines flight 3U8633 incident. Awesome visuals, evidently improved with decent CGI effects. . As paradoxical as it sounds, this is one flight you won’t want to miss.

A must watch. It's a tear-jerker. If you have normal emotions, this might make you sad for a while. By the way... The incorrect trailer was shown.

This is definitely one of the movies that gets your heartbeat faster with all thrills. It puts you in a situation whereby you could actually feel like you were one of the passenger.
