    I think the critics did too much contract and comparison and missed the point on this powerful movie. My opinion is that Hillary did a magnificient job on this flick. The story line could have been a bit more creative with the ending. Those of us that were born during the 2nd WW recall lots of theories. Lindberg and Erhart were household names (eventhough she was missing and presumed dead).

    Write your review here.By far the best film I've ever seen. True to form, and the film left us all wondering where Amelia really ended up... A question that has echoed through the ages. Hilary Swank I believe was fantastic in this film.. I couldn't get enough of her and the way she carried herself, made me believe she was Amelia Earhart. I hope to see more of Hilary Swank, fantastic!!!..

    Very boring movie - one note. Too many shots of HIlary Swank - not interesting enough to carry the movie. Slow ... boring... a disappointment. Tivo it instead.
