Based on the horrific Überlingen mid-air collision, the reason for which was several unfortunate circumstances in concurrence, this film almost pays respect to history and the involved parties. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a bereaved father and husband, and Scoot McNairy as an air traffic controller who was working at the time of the accident. Both actors get plenty of room to excel. McNairy does, but Schwarzenegger is (obviously) out of his depth, despite a wholehearted effort. It is unfathomable to me that the casting people didn't see this coming. Still, the film remains interesting and effective in an old-fashioned TV movie way, meaning heavy focus on simple emotions and not too much on nuance. Which is disappointing, considering the remarkable nature of the real-life story; a story that should have been brought to the screen on a larger budget.
