On a flight over the Gobi Desert in Mongolia, Capt.

Flight of the Phoenix ignores the human drama to focus on cockamamie setbacks that are harder to swallow than the plane's motor oil.

Remake of Robert Aldrich's revered 1965 classic would be 15% better if not for its abysmal use of pop music, and 100% better if Aldrich's son William had never thought to ride on his father's coattails by producing it in the first place.

The wonderful character actors in the original ... are succeeded by a fairly anonymous bunch.

If I had seen this film before the original, I might have actually preferred it.

Other than Dennis Quaid, none of these characters leaves so much as a footprint in the sand. We don't know them. We don't care about them.

Exciting (but intense) adventure for older kids.

In the end, it may be that man against sand isn't as thrilling as it was back in the day.

Entertaining, but brainless, popcorn fun.

By film's end the adventure appears less a matter of base survival than a beach barbecue gone slightly sour.

This time out, there's not much out there to look at besides sand, and even it doesn't look real.
