Critic Reviews for The Captain

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • A corny but enjoyable disaster flick which makes up for what it lacks in polished CGI with a rattling pace and plenty of bracingly authentic scenes of screaming passenger panic.

    November 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Though riddled with wobbly dialogue and wafer-thin characters, this patriotic thriller is easy enough to enjoy if you don't look too closely.

    October 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A proper nail-biter even if you already know what happens in the real life story.

    October 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • ...[a] hair-raising, high-in-the-sky action thriller. Lau's action-adventure spectacle that feels as unapologetically loose and unrestrained as a defective seat belt.

    April 3, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Passengers on a flight to Tibet survive accidents and weather in a disaster pic that's become a blockbuster hit in China.

    October 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Essentially 'Sully' without the nuance, a throwback to the disaster-movie formulas of pre-'Airplane!' days.
