Overview

The intense world of air-traffic controllers is played for both drama and laughs in Pushing Tin. John Cusack plays Nick Falzone, the top air traffic controller at New York's Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) Center, where he negotiates air traffic and landing patterns for the Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark airports, America's most congested airspace. It's a tough, stressful job that's highly demanding and Nick is very good at it -- and he takes no small amount of pride in that. So Nick is less than enthusiastic when a new controller comes on board; Russell Bell (Billy Bob Thornton) transferred into TRACON from the Southwest, in search of a greater challenge. In direct contrast to the wired edginess of Nick's personality, Russell is a model of Zen cool who is so focused on planes it's said he once stood in the wake of a 747 just to know what it felt like. Soon work becomes a constant competition between Russell and Nick, and their competitiveness doesn't stop when work is over. However, the rivalry begins to take a different turn when Nick takes notice of Russell's beautiful but hard-drinking wife Mary (Angelina Jolie), while Nick's wife Connie (Cate Blanchett) finds herself more than a bit intrigued by Russell. Pushing Tin was written by Glen Charles and Les Charles, who previously received notice for their television work on such series as M*A*S*H, Cheers and Taxi, and directed by British filmmaker Mike Newell, who's last project, Donnie Brasco, also took him into a little seen side of New York City.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Media coverage of the dissolution of Brad Pitt’s marriage to Jennifer Aniston and his subsequent attachment to Angelina Jolie, his costar in this loud and lively action comedy, unfortunately overshadowed the film itself. Pitt and Jolie portray the titular spouses, both of whom lead secret lives on the side -- unbeknownst to the other -- as assassins for competing interests. Assigned to the same hit, they get in each other’s way and blow the job, leading to a spy-vs.-spy showdown that only exacerbates their growing dissatisfaction with their marriage. Their long-simmering antipathy turns deadly, with a supposedly quiet dinner at home erupting into open warfare. Of course, the joke is on them: Their respective employers want them both dead and are prepared to deploy hit squads to take out the survivor. Director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) is not exactly subtle or restrained in his staging of action scenes, and this film’s armed confrontations are nothing short of cyclonic in their speed and intensity. The chemistry between Pitt and Jolie, however, is palpable, which lends the needed credibility -- and a leavening dollop of insouciance -- to one of the most patently absurd plots committed to celluloid in many a moon. Vince Vaughn adds his trademark wisecracking humor to the characterization of a hit man who lives with his mother, and the effectiveness of his contribution shouldn’t be underestimated. (You, too, will be forgiven for wondering what was in the water on this shoot, in light of Vaughn’s subsequent courting of the soon-to-be-erstwhile Mrs. Pitt.) But the whole show is watching Pitt and Jolie beat the heck out of each other, so if that’s your idea of a good time -- and we can’t imagine why it wouldn’t be -- this rapid-paced romp ought to be right up your alley.
San Francisco Chronicle
The result is a worthy woman's film and Jolie's best showcase to date.
