Storyline Heading
A group of survivors from a plane crash are stranded in the Gobi desert with no chance of rescue. Facing a brutal environment, dwindling resources, and an attack by desert smugglers, they realize their only hope is doing the "impossible": building a new plane from the wreckage to escape the desert.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - This is an action drama with slightly more emphasis on the drama than action. After one big effects sequence, the film is more concerned with its small cast of characters stranded in one location.

Below Average

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Despite using the same premise and numerous identical plot points, this remake replaces suspense with boredom and witty dialogue with lame lines any self-respecting actor should be embarrassed to utter.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Because I had, in a sense, already seen this movie, it didn't have surprises or suspense for me, and the actors on their own aren't enough to save it. I'm not recommending it for those who know the original, but it might work nicely enough for those who have not.

USA Today Full Review
Average There's nothing like dumbing down a movie grown-ups love so it can be "sold" to teens who aren't going to go anyway. The savvy flyer will proceed to the gate marked The Aviator instead.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 147 moviegoer opinions. These are very good but not quite great opinions. Neither age or gender seemed to make much difference in the opinions. Around half to three-quarters enjoyed it very much rating it "Very Good" or higher. Most of the rest thought it was an OK movie, which isn't too bad. No one truly disliked it. I can easily recommend "Flight of the Phoenix." Nearly everyone should enjoy it, at least to some degree.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When cargo plane pilot Frank Towns and co-pilot AJ are sent to the Tan sag Basin in Mongolia to evacuate the staff of an oil exploration operation that has been shut down, they have no idea that this "routine" operation will result in a life-and-death struggle – and an incredible rebirth.

Shortly after take-off, while flying across the Gobi Desert, the plane encounters a massive sand storm that rips off its antenna and destroys its left engine. As sand and gravel roar against the fuselage, the plane falters and Towns is forced to crash land in the middle of the world's most foreboding desert – in the middle of July.

The plane is damaged beyond repair, and the surviving eleven passengers and crew are stranded with little food and water. As accusations fly and tensions mount, their situation becomes increasingly desperate. An eccentric, mysterious man named Elliott – a last-minute addition to the passenger list – offers hope by suggesting that they build a new plane, to be named the Phoenix, from the undamaged components of the wrecked C-119 cargo plane.

Towns and the others dismiss Elliott's plan as being impractical, if not absurd. Moreover, it would quickly sap their ever dwindling resources and energy. However, as their numbers dwindle and all chance of being rescued fades, they realize that Elliott's plan is their only chance. Their only way out is up.

The survivors put aside their differences and, under Elliott's guidance, begin construction of the Phoenix. Even as the new plane begins to take shape, the task seems impossible. But the impossible is their only choice.
