Audience Reviews for Airport '77

  • Sep 28, 2012
    Third film in the series departs from the first two films and offers something new. The plot works well enough to keep you interested from start to finish, and though it's nothing special, it's actually an improvement over the previous films. However like the first two in the series, this entry still has its limitations. Despite its good plot, and its effort to try something different, the film's script suffers from underdeveloped writing. However the cast here are good and it is one of the best casts in any Airport films. I really enjoyed the film, and this is the perfect little thriller to watch if you're looking for mindless entertainment. But like every other film in the series, don't expect a superb film, and you're sure to enjoy it. I thought this was an underrated entry in the series and because it departs from the first two films, it does something new and exciting. As a disaster flick, this third film works well, and along with the first film in the franchise, I'd have to say this is the best one. However, all of the entries have their strengths and weaknesses. As a third film usually is one of the worst films in the series, this is not the case with Airport '77 is a good film filled with suspense, thrills and has you hooked from start to finish. Disaster films of the 70's were meant as pure popcorn flicks, silly, yet very enjoyable. If you enjoyed the first two films, check this one out. Despite its flaws, this one is good due to good performances from the cast that are good in their roles, and make the film what it is.

    Another airport disaster film, if I remember right this was interesting as it dealt with a plane that had crashed and was deep underwater in the ocean. Quite an intriguing film as they try to problem solve how to save the passengers.

    This movie follows the same formula as the other airport movies, but I think it has the most stars yet of the series. It's rather slow going, but the ending is pretty cool (until they remind you that it's not a real story, which was stupid). Overall, it's just okay.

    Not up to par with the original Airport or even Airport 1975. The storyline weakens (guess airport security was pretty lax in those days). How a 747 can crash land in the water and stay in one piece and THEN only sinks 100 feet or so in the bermuda triangle off the Atlantic Ocean is unplausible, but one has to suspend belief I guess! Jack Lemon is no Dean Martin (or Charlton Heston for that matter). A weaker "all-star" cast than the original, this story does have some suspense to it if you can simply disregard the obvious holes in this catostraphic scenario. An ok watch only...
