Audience Reviews for Ground Control
A highly entertaining film that makes good use of the suspense potential in the critical job performed by air traffic controllers. An outstanding cast and well written dialog gives the film a strong feel of verisimilitude.
Very limited sets and effects are well used by filling them with some great performers walking through a not completely original plot. The movie is a lot more watchable than you might expect mainly due to the realism they bring to an over worked, dilapidated airport control tower. Winkler makes the movie as a semi-comic relief and does sterling work with a 'nothing role' and constantly acts like a hero who no one thanks or really notices.
If you put expensive actors in a movie without a decent story line or plot, you just have an expensive flop. That's all this movie is.
