Moses Brody (James Franciscus) is a reporter finds himself in too deep when he discovers that a rival airline company to the Concorde sabotaged one of the planes causing a disaster, he tries to find out what's going on before another Concorde mysteriously crashes.

Not seen this since I had the old VTC tape, Blu Ray overall looks ok but shows it's limitations here and there.

I spent a couple of days with the director of photography of this film not that long ago... He reckoned this film could have been a "huge international success", if only the producer had spent a little bit more money on it. He seemed quite cut up about it to be honest...

Tanzi, is the film actually any good? Just curious because I'm usually a sucker for 70's disaster films...

It's pretty good, not fantastic but not bad either, definitely worth a watch I'd say. It's not really a disaster film, more a "reporter on the case" sort of thing if you know what I mean (with a bit of violence here and there).

I first caught this many years ago through a German television screening and found it to be very enjoyable. Deodato is one of those rare directors who manages to do good work in pretty much all kinds of different genres, and this is a nice little suspense film. It also boasts a fantastic Stelvio Cipriani soundtrack, good photography and attractive locations and a very good cast. It does indeed suffer from some budgetary constraints, which leads to a lot of Concorde stock footage and unconvincing model work but that's part of the charm with these old European productions, I think. It's not a masterpiece but it's enjoyable and well worth a look!
