Unlike the film's aircraft, the story never gets off the ground.

Audience Reviews for Slattery's Hurricane

Not as good as it should have been but still an interesting film thanks to having a talent like Richard Widmark in the lead. Both Linda and Veronica are wasted in insubstantial parts. Veronica with her famous hair shorn looks quite matronly.
