    Emergency Declaration won't set the world on fire, but it very successfully sticks the landing with an old formula: A large cast disaster drama. I was reminded a lot of the star-studded 1970s productions coming out of Hollywood, with a lot of time spent on the detailed minutiae of the situation: among the passengers, the crew, the government, the families on the ground, and the determined detectives. The personal drama and moments of action are pretty light, but the plot is consistently taut, with dire stakes always on the line. I was very impressed with the film's ability to juggle such a large and high-performing cast in a believable manner, without ever losing track of who is who and what matters to each of them.

    I also really appreciated the practical filmmaking and stunt work which helped to sell the immersion. When people start flying around the cabin, you can feel the bruises. The few fully CGI moments are brief enough to forgive their slight jankiness, and I liked that they were only used for impossible exterior shots of the plane. This is wonderful, old-school filmmaking on big sets!

    Bring a tissue, buckle up, and enjoy the ride!
