Movie Info

When you board an airplane, you put your life in the hands of the pilot and co-pilot. What happens in the cockpit when these professionals are faced with impending disaster? CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO (code for "cockpit voice recorder") dramatizes actual black box recordings of six harrowing airline emergencies, using the sparest of elements to foreground the unabashedly heroic professionalism of these unsung men and women. Adapted from a critically-acclaimed theatrical production, the movie - shot and projected in 3-D - puts you in the cockpit as they do everything possible to land under near-impossible circumstances: a plane that can only make right turns; blown engines due to bird strikes; or failed hydraulics, resulting from maintenance negligence. "For 80 minutes, the movie keeps you in something like suspended animation, waiting to exhale. You've never seen anything like it." - Scott Foundas, Village Voice (c) Film Forum

  • The hybrid feel, a mix of live TV and stage play, seems appropriate to a work that inherently rests on a blend of the immediate and the canned.

  • The performances are universally pitched at a to-the-rafters level that comes off poorly on camera, while the stereoscopic photography is more distracting than immersive ...
