Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: One of the most touching films ever made. A must-see

- Clint Morris, Tsunami Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: Donner and Evans can't find a way to extricate themselves from the impossible structure they have erected. They remain locked into the odd combination of the dreamy and the dreadful that is entirely of their own devising.

- Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer, Monday, May 20, 2013

Fresh: It all makes for a soaring -- and tearful -- ending.

- Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Saturday, January 1, 2000

A good one with kids who belive they can build a flying machine.
