After picking up a crew of oil workers, pilot Frank Towns (Quaid) runs into a sandstorm and crashes into the Gobi desert. Survival prospects seem dim, until a mysterious passenger (Ribisi) announces that he's an aircraft designer and they can build a new plane from the wreckage.
As remakes go, this is a solid reworking of a terrific premise, but still a missed opportunity to reinvent a character piece for troubled times.
