Combining a gripping story, intense action and ground-breaking special effects, Airport paved the way for a whole new style of disaster film and became a trend-setting box office blockbuster. The tension-filled adventure stars Burt Lancaster as the manager of an international airport who must juggle personal crises with professional responsibilities as he attempts to keep his blizzard-torn facility open to rescue a bomb-damaged jetliner. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast that also includes Dean Martin, Jacqueline Bisset, George Kennedy, Maureen Stapleton and Helen Hayes, this unforgettable film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture and remains a suspense filled trip from take-off to dramatic landing.

The politically correct parents can use this for tons of "teachable moments"-- obvious sexism, out moded gender roles, stereotyping of all kinds.
The rest of us can enjoy a good, old, classic movie that had some real engineering skill involved in the making--yes, that those were REAL AIRPLANES they were playing with in the movie, not models or CG --before someone decides to ban it :-).
The film may seem soap-operaish in its story lines, but primarily because it tried to give its characters some personal lives and that they might exist in a world beyond simply serving the plot of the film.
A lot of good actors and performances here. Dean Martin shows he could play a real person when he felt like it. Lancaster and George Kennedy are always great.
Great casting and acting by all the cast. Audio and video quality is consistent throughout.
Love disaster films or ensemble cast films, Airport is the way to go. Only con I noticed is there are no special features on the DVD.
HD version is fine, with good colors and clear picture.
