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

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.

Okay for someone who isn't interested in a story based on facts. Great photography and interesting costumes from that period. Too bad this piece of fluff didn't try to portray a more accurate story of a truly great woman flyer.

A disappointing film, too many unanswered question, too slow, and did not beleive the realionship with Earhart (Swank) and Thurman (Gere)

So a pioneering feminist in the hands of a feminist filmmaker should have been a perfect match. But like her subject, the filmmaker gets lost in the clouds. Full Review

It's enough to make you wish someone would make a movie about her. Full Review

This movie was made to be shown to junior high history classes, not audiences in a movie theater. Full Review
