Out of the ashes, hope will rise.
When an Amacor oil rig in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia proves unproductive, Captain Frank Towns and copilot "A.J." are sent to shut the operation down. However, on their way to Beijing, a major dust storm forces them to ditch their C-119 Flying Boxcar in an uncharted area of the desert.

My first impression when I first watched this... the movie has a peculiar cinematography. Really - some shots were taken unusually (stills on individual's expression, panorama shot on the desert, etc). And despite being a movie in 2004, it feels so 90-ish (partly maybe because of the cinematography?).

But that doesn't make it bad. It might feels unusual, but story, the pace, was built nicely. Good movie overall! The premise itself is already very interesting to watch.

(Granted, I don't watch the original adaptation!)
