Air Disaster

Plot Summary:

A DC-8 aircraft crash lands in a Los Angeles suburb after a mid-air collision with a small light aircraft that ends up in the Los Angeles River.

Comments:

The cast of the TV series 'Emergency' feature in this special movie length episode. This movie features excellent special effects (and I mean excellent). But it lacks in creating any real emotion in the viewer, nor does it portray the enormity of the event. The poor characterisation is mostly due to the fact that you would have to have watched the previous episodes in order to understand the characters. On it's own, however, the characters seem lifeless and dull. Still, the effects make it all worth while.

Special Effects:

The special effects in this film are outstanding for a TV series. The crash looked more believable than a lot of feature films. Definitely worth a look.
