Audience Reviews for Ground Control (Jet)


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.


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.

David Smith

Some what Boring at times, but the Intensity of the Acting Balanced the Movies Feel of the Drama. Its Alright !
