The first two Airport films were campy and kind of terrible, but watchable, occasionally gripping, and often unintentionally hilarious. This was the first film where I was not on board for any of the above. First off, it begins as an airplane film and switches to a naval adventure. It was a chore to get through, and I have a feeling that Concorde will be worse and better at the same time.
Quite the psychological exploration between (alleged) criminal and captor. Surprising to see such an introspective performance from Connery -- not that he couldn't act, just not often this deeply. The scenes in the interrogation room could have been a stage play, but played nearly to perfection. The flashbacks were not as strong, but worked as a way of developing Connery's character by showing the weight of his life's work.
