It barely flies,

This review is from: Aviator [VHS] (VHS Tape)
If you're a Christopher Reeve fan, you'll like this movie. If not, then you're in for just another "surviving-in-the-wilderness" tale of an American mail pilot in one of the last days of flying before pilots actually carried passengers. Reeve does a good job of portraying Edgar, a former WW1 flight instructor who's trying to overcome the scars of the death of a student. He crashes in the mountains in the midst of a mail run with a brat of a girl played by Arquette. Surviving with little food, plagued by the cold, hunger and a pack of mean wolves, Reeve triumphes in the end. You didn't expect anything less of Superman now didja?
