Storyline

 

Amelia Earhart : The Final Flight, A telling of the story of the famous U.S. aviatrix Amelia Earhart who attempted to fly solo around the world in 1937. She disappeared during the process.

Okay, and more accurate than one might think.

Amelia Earhart : The Final Flight, This movie was decent for a TV Movie, it was well directed and fairly well casted (Although the casting of Dern as Putnam could have been better), and handled the era quite nicely.

I liked how it explored the angle of Amelia gathering information about Japanese movements – if you consider the condition the country was in at the time of the real Earhart flight, you’d understand that it very well could not be a myth. It included Noonans alcohol problem (A little known, yet on the record fact) as well as Amelias stubbornness to carry extra equipment.

One thing I did not like about this movie is the “afterwards” angle. It ended with them raising their altitude in some final acceptance scene into the sunset – Amelia was stubborn, she wouldn’t have accepted the fact that she may very well be DEAD in an hour that easily.

Also, I think it would have been prudent to tell the viewers that not only would a Lockeed C-35 Electra (The plane she was flying) float with empty fuel tanks, but also that there were several islands in the vicinity of Amelias last transmissions… the (real) main theory is that she crashed on one of these islands and was later executed by pacific Japanese troops… the plane was then burned (Almost confirmed by pieces of a C-35 found on one of the islands) Overall it was an amusing movie. I thought it was overacted in some parts, and the drama was stereotypical and drawn out. Talking bout this movie,it is still a good movie, not excellent,but still worth for viewing
