Imagine yourself waking up on a large jet with about ten other people - but before you fell asleep, the plane was filled to its capacity of a couple hundred. Even the pilot is gone! How did this happen? Where'd everybody go?
That's pretty much the scenario in The Langoliers, when a school teacher, a blind girl in need of an operation, a pilot who is a passenger for once, a terribly irritating businessman, and several others find themselves alone on their jet plane. Fortunately, the pilot manages to land the plane - in a strangely deserted airport. The plot gets much more complex and detailed later on (between the two tapes, the movie is six hours long, but it seems like much less).
A marvelous rental movie - especially if you have lots of time to kill, enjoyably.
