Nick Falzone (John Cusack) is the best air-traffic controller in the business. He is therefore rattled by the arrival of a laid-back and supercool rival, in the form of Russell Bell (Billy Bob Thornton). As the rivalry between the two increases, they find themselves acting out ever more dangerous stunts, much to the outrage of the authorities.
Blessed with a fantastic cast and slick direction by Mike Newell, Pushing Tin is one of those invigorating movies (like Wall Street or All the President's Men) that takes you behind the scenes of a dramatic profession--in this case, the high-stress world of air-traffic controllers--and throws in a source of conflict to ramp up the tension. For ace "tin-pusher" Nick Falzone (John Cusack), that conflict arrives in the form of Russell Bell (Billy Bob Thornton), whose Zen-like control of air traffic immediately puts Nick on the defensive. Add an incident of infidelity and Nick's subsequent self-loathing and guilt and Pushing Tin turns into a macho contest, with Nick's and Russell's spouses (Cate Blanchett and Angelina Jolie, respectively) stuck in the middle.
At that point, this otherwise splendid comedy-drama turns almost fatally silly and hits additional turbulence by lapsing into a predictable series of pat resolutions. Fortunately, the jazzy cast avoids a nosedive into the tarmac, and if you recall Blanchett's Oscar-nominated performance in Elizabeth, you'll be amazed by her flawless transformation into a smart and sweetly devoted New Jersey housewife. Dialogue is a major asset here, and the script (by TV veterans Glen and Les Charles) gives Cusack & co. plenty to chew on. That makes Pushing Tin a breezy good time, and its flaws are easily forgiven. --Jeff Shannon

What can i say... 'Watch it', you'll find that you dont know what to think of it. I'll give you the speedy low-down, fantastic acting, great scenes, suspense, boobs, original story and competition. Now the interesting stuff. John Cussack rocks and this just shows how much. Both he and Billy-B take control of hundreds of lives throughout this film and pretty much show us how much fun can be had whilst doing so.
This film is all over the place, but still really easy to follow. It makes exciting Tele and a good anytime film (i.e. watch it alone, or with a room full of mates). Its full of intelligent conversations and jokes, but still has the all american 'im better than you' sort of atmosphere.
Confused... I was it took me months to decide wether i like this or not, during this time i watched it loads of times and finally decided that it rocks. Also if anyone who has seen it, could tell me if that really happens, when you play chicken with a plane, I would be very grateful. See this buy this do whatever you must to get the ideas this film portrays into your previously virgin mind!
Highly recomended! Dan.

Plot all over the place and ridiculous at times, none of the characters are very sympathetic so I didn't really care what happened to them. Was over long and got boring.Published 18 months ago by Kizzie Henderson
I've seen the film before but lost it so knew I wanted it in my collection. The service was efficient and fast.Published on 14 Sept. 2013 by Julie
The DVD worked ok. It's just the film that is total rubbish. Surprising given the great cast. If you can pick up cheap like I did for a second hand copy do it. Read morePublished on 15 April 2013 by michaeldsims
