Critic Reviews for The Theory of Flight
The final reel of the film is over-sentimental, but the early scenes involving the couple at war are affecting.
a charming bit of whimsy that probably would crash and burn with lesser talents at the controls
Kenneth Branagh and Helena Bonham Carter generate enough good will to keep aloft a charming bit of whimsy that probably would crash and burn with lesser talents at the controls.
The cinematic equivalent to experimental light aircraft, this is a bumpy ride that sputters and fails, not quite crashing yet never soaring above its earnest intentions.
Carter's bravura performance is the reason to see The Theory of Flight, but it's a shame that nothing else in the film matches the obvious care she put into her role.
