Beneath the glossy surface there's a niggling lack of depth, but otherwise this is a grand, impressive Tinseltown drama.

A tremendous success.

The Aviator is more than entertaining and engrossing enough to keep you interested ... for at least 130 minutes or so.

Its primary appeal is its speed: It rushes along, from scandal to air crash to movie romance to Senate hearing, each anecdote well realized but never tarried over.

Regardless of the fact that The Aviator may not be Scorsese's best work, it is unquestionably a creative piece of moviemaking.

If the folks who made Hollywood were going to make a movie today it would be made like The Aviator.
