Amelia

The new biopic on the life and times of aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart doesn’t crash and burn. But it doesn’t soar either. It just sort of taxis on the runway, gets some occasional lift, and glides back down again. Not the most exciting ride. And that’s disappointing, especially when you consider her remarkable story.

Amelia

Since I was a kid, I have loved Amelia Earhart’s story. And when I heard they were doing a film, I was excited. But I am not sure this looks like my imagination, particularly with the casting of Hillary Swank as Amelia. I don’t see her as the larger than life heroine or as Richard Gere’s lover and wife. She doesn’t have that charisma or sex appeal. Is it just me? You decide. Watch this . Release date: 23 October 2009
