Otherwise, the airplane should be either Boeing 747-100/747-200 or 767-200/767-300ER with thick red cheat lines along fuselage and white maple leaf imposed on red tail. See more »

Amazing true story - not so great movie
27 July 2020 | by eslapionflSee all my reviews

I remember reading the actual news from this incident back when I was in my late teens, early twenties. Victor Malarek did an incredibly good job at showing how incompetent Canadian officials who couldn't cause a significant dent in the drug trade coming from Asia into north america decided to use a straw man to create a fictitious incident in order to improve their image. The incident in itself and how it was covered back then by journalist Malarek was plain riveting. Unfortunately, the movie that was made about it is clearly not a top quality product and misuses the talent of great actors. Still worth watching just to learn about what happened.
