Despite the poor decision to portray the NTSB as antagonistic and the usual cliches that come about in these biographical drama films it is on the whole an engrossing affair that has a fantastic lead performance by Tom Hanks, it is briskly paced, has a solid supporting cast, the whole emergency landing scene is expertly done and it even manages to portray the emotions of these real people in a surreal situation in an effective manner.
Sadly this drama that centers around the harrowing rape of a woman and the subsequent court case is as relevant today as it was back in 1988 but as far as dramas that center around such a tough, hard hitting subject and being set in a courtroom go this is well above average. This is down to the fantastic lead performances of Jodie Foster and Kelly McGillis, the uncompromising plot, the deeply uncomfortable rape scene which doesn't pull any punches, it is well paced, the supporting cast is solid and the script is insightful.
