01.27.07Netflix Black September tries to blow up the Goodyear blimp during Superbowl. Does it explode, firing thousands of bullets in all directions killing thousands upon thousands of football fans in a heap of burning wreckage? Since the image of the blimp looming over the stadium is the cover of the book and the poster for the movie and the main DVD menu, that's the only real question involved... and you have to wait 140 minutes to find out... but really, you already know the answer, so I guess the journey is supposed to be the fun part. Robert Shaw has an... unfortunate Israeli accent in this... and it feels like they had to write a scene for Bruce Dern to break down and cry and be dramatic in order to get him to play the role... Other than that, it's well-done but no real shocks or surprises. I'd always avoided both reading the book and watching the movie because I could so easily tell how the whole thing went just from the premise... Well now I've seen it and... yep, I was pretty much right.
