Product Description

At 32,000 feet a Korean 747 passenger jet is blown open by a Soviet missile. The mangled aircraft manages to stay airborne for a few minutes, but then plummets into the frigid Japanese sea with no survivors. Nan Moore, the mother of a passenger from the aircraft begins to search for the answers to her son's meaningless death and soon she finds that her own government may be responsible.

Product Description

Based on a true story this tv-film stars Angela Lansbury (National Velvet; The Manchurian Candidate; Bedknobs and Broomsticks; Tv's- Murder She Wrote) as Nan Moore, the mother of one of the victims of the Korean Air Lines plane crash in 1983 when the plane was shot down over the Soviet Union. Determined to find the truth of what happened, she finds only a wall of silence and constant trouble with the authorities !.

4.0 out of 5 stars Angela who? Lansbury steals the show, but seller doesn't list her! 5 Aug 2007
By OperaLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The great Angela Lansbury stars in this made for TV movie. It is distressing that the seller seems not to realize that her name is virtually the ONLY selling point to purchase this docudrama. Extremely topical in its day regarding the fatal shooting of Korean Airlines Flight 007 over Russian airspace, Ms. Lansbury is the chief artistic reason to buy this DVD. Since the airing of this made-for-TV movie, much more information has come to light about what really occurred to that fateful flight. One must look at this as an interesting drama, correct in its day, but as a historical piece in time. Artistically, this is efficient but none too special in every other way. Ms. Lansbury, as usual, raises the whole enterprise into something worthwhile and even compelling. Kudos to Lansbury.

2.0 out of 5 stars it's a conspiracy 12 Dec 2007
By D. R. Patrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was made before the Soviets/Russians released the flight data and voice recorders from KAL 007 and it shows. Angela Lansbury's character wants the world to believe that the US had a role in the shootdown, that 007 was on a spy mission, and that the 007 pilot was teasing the Russians. Some conspiracy theorists were taken to court for slander and found guilty. I wanted a visual aid for my class that had read a book about the last flight of 007, but this movie turned into a lesson in conspiracy propaganda. Way too "patriotic" of a message touting the perfect virtues of democracy and dangers of big government. I didn't know Lansbury was such a right winger. At least if there had been more action sequences illustrating the actual flight there might have been some reason to watch this movie. My ESL students had difficulty following the beauraucratic labyrynth featured in this film.
