    Interesting to read that indeed. I was very impressed by the scenes on the ground, this is a theme that has been very explored (not that it's censurable), but how it was lived by all the air traffic control, who knew nothing about what was going on, and specially with that 'documentary-like feel', made it very interesting. 6 years 8 months ago

    Much better than I was expecting. All the scenes on the ground (air traffic control, both military and civilian) were very compelling. Interesting to read that a lot of the cast were playing themselves or were in that line of work themselves so gave it a very documentary-like feel. Lines were delivered by someone who knew the subject and industry rather than an actor. In fact, they did a better job than bone fide actors IMO.

    Worth a watch if it comes up on the TV schedules for sure.

    (PS: I'm not American).
