Really solid action-thriller disaster flick that in some ways is better than the first, especially being leaner and going away from the overly long soap opera storyline that took up half the running time. Some impressive aerial footage and the performances, for the kind of movie this is, wasn’t bad. Is it convoluted with the actual disaster? For sure, but I was entertainined. **3.75/5**
There’s just a hole where the pilots usually sit!
A 747 in flight collides with a small plane and is rendered pilotless. With one of the cabin crew stewardesses forced to take the helm, the control tower must try to get a pilot aboard so the jet can land safely…
With the disaster genre of film now in full effect by the mid 70s, it was inevitable that we would see a follow up to the forerunner that was Airport (1970). One again we get a star cast list, this time thrust into mid-air peril where standard genre conventions apply. Unfortunately this is one of the weakest genre entries of the decade, where suspense is hard to find, and in fact it often comes off like unintentional comedy. Draw card actor Charlton Heston is wasted, as is George Kennedy, while the predictability factor of how it will pan out sort of kills hope of a thrilling finale.
Not a total stinker, there’s some nice aerial sequences, some rich characterisations, and Karen Black as the under duress cabin crew member trying to fly the plane, is at least convincing enough to sell the terror of the situation. But really it’s a tough sell, especially when you consider that genre highlight “The Towering Inferno” was released this same year. 5/10
Plastic acting and stock characters detailing a hectic flight in 747 Boeing
This is the second of four movies in the “Airport” series . It’s exciting and amusing but full clichés and stereotypes with mediocre performance by all star cast . The movie is another jetliner epic with hero Heston . A commercial airline of the American Airlines 747 Boeing ( piloted by Efrem Zimbalist Jr. , Roy Thinnes , Erik Estrada ) is crashed to another smaller plane (piloted by Dana Andrews) . Then the flight attendant ( Karen Black who brings conviction to her character as dedicated stewardess turned pilot ) taking on control of the dangerous travel and forcing daring rescue attempt ( by Ed Flanders and Heston) . The film is detailing hectic flighty piloted by a stewardess and the relationship among passengers . All clichéd and stock roles with regurgitation of all usual stereotypical situations from disaster films , the nuns ( Helen Reddy as singing nun and Martha Scott ), an aging alcoholic woman (Myrna Loy , but Joan Crawford was firstly approached to play the character who turned down), nervous passengers , an old actress (Gloria Swanson) . Taking place on freeze skies and Rocky Mountains as background , the airplane heading to Salt Lake City . If you’ve seen the original ¨Airport¨ ( by George Seaton ) based on the Arthur Hailey’s novel ‘the daddy of them all’ , you have seen them all .
The picture contains thriller, suspense , drama , moderate tension and is quite entertaining although with some flaws and gaps . Filmed at the height of the disaster genre from the 7os , this entry in the spectacular series profits of a strong acting by Charlton Heston who spent time on a simulator in preparation for the role , bringing life to character , he also starred a similar role at ¨ Skyjacked (1972) ¨ by John Guillermin . Gloria Swanson performs herself in her ending movie . Look quickly to Nancy Olson , Linda Blair , Sid Caesar, Beverly Garland , Norman Fell and Jerry Stiller , Ben Stiller’s father , among others . And of course appears the classic character Patroni played by usual George Kennedy . The motion picture is regularly directed by Jack Smight , habitual TV director and occasionally for theater ( Midway , Harper , No way to treat a lady ) . It’s an inoffensive diversion but is sometimes tediously unspooled and it was parodied heavily in Airplane! (1980) by Jim Abrahams and David Zucker . The film will appeal to Charlton Heston fans and disaster genre enthusiasts .
