All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

A gutsy and startlingly balanced take on the events of that day in February 1996.

Even if you followed these events and know the details well, Shoot Down is quite revealing -- and moving.

Top Critic

Gets bogged down with too many talking heads and long-winded departures into American political policy and -- at the beginning, at least -- rather cheesily sentimental music. Those weaknesses blunt what could have been a more sharply told story.

Audience Reviews for Shoot Down

Impressively evenhanded look at an attack on US citizens near - but not in - Cuban airspace.
