Competent, watchable remake that improves on the special effects and running time but loses the moral complexity and the character work of the original.

If the praise seems faint, it's nevertheless praise -- this Flight of the Phoenix may not soar, but it manages to get itself airborne.

If there's one thing you can be sure of, modern remakes of older movies always have better crashes.

A movie about people sitting around the desert with nothing to do runs a high risk of being dull, but Phoenix has enough wit, energy and charisma to keep soaring.

John Moore's remake doesn't come close to upstaging its predecessor...and yet it doesn't exactly humiliate itself either.
