Mark Lindsay Chapman, Dean Stockwell, and David Morse are the only good actors in this movie. The little girl is not only bad at being blind but bad at acting in general, but I forgave that. Acting isn't as easy as it seems in the first place, and faking blindness is even harder. The writing is pretty good though; much of the dialogue is word-for-word from the story it's based on, and even some of the more minor events are left in to keep a sense of connection to the personalities of the characters.

Overall if you're considering watching this instead of reading the book, I recommend it. It's a very accurate translation. The only exceptions are the cutting of most of the violence and profanity - which wasn't strictly necessary in the first place - and the removal of one passenger on the plane that sleeps the entire time and contributes nothing to the story. If you can get past the supporting cast's bad acting - and the lame 90's special effects, which I personally find endearing - it's actually a pretty interesting and tense story.

Anyone who hates this has no soul.

Also am I the only one who thought the effects were good? Granted I was like 7 when i saw it and it was the 90s but they terrified me.

Really enjoyed it up until the horrific '90s effects kicked in towards the end.
