Disaster:

Air Disaster

Plot Summary:

Comments:

'Jet Over the Atlantic' certainly had more than I was expecting as far as the script goes. I was expecting a very tame story but found one that had murder and deceit as well as the happy ending. The story moved along quite well but audiences may find it a little difficult to watch by todays standards. Please note, the image to the right is from the poster.

Special Effects:

The special effects in this film were very well done and were made up of mostly stock footage of the aircraft and some excellent fire scenes. That said, this is not an effects filled movie and should be judged accordingly. Watch it for the story.
