      Kimberly Pierce Ticklish Business All in all, The Crowded Sky is far from the best entry into the rather prolific Airplane in Trouble sub-genre... (its) script finds itself confused as to what exactly it wants to be. Is it a soap opera? Is this a disaster film? No one really knows. Rated: 2/5 Apr 6, 2022 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine The jet age again, this time in a Hollywood opus that takes far too long to reach its exciting climax. Nov 14, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Diverting soap opera air disaster movie. Rated: B- May 13, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Bad acting and a sometimes humorous plot (unintentional) buoy interest in this soap opera disaster movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Overwrought and with clunky special effects this is a still entertaining precusor to Airport and all it's many follow-ups.
