Comments:

Brilliant! This film is superbly cast and perfectly acted. The film contains almost no special effects yet you'll be on the edge of your seat throughout the film. A must see for all disaster fans.

Special Effects:

As mentioned, there are no real special effects used in this film. What we do see are few stock footage shots of various aircraft etc, but overall, no effects worth noting. Still, a must see film for everyone.
