Trivia

Goofs

At the beginning of the film a Douglas DC-3 comes into land, but the aircraft seen taxi-ing is a Boeing 247. The passengers do not seem to get off a tail-wheel aircraft as the fuselage seems to be on the level rather than sloping. See more »

Yawn!
8 January 2009 | by (long island) – See all my reviews

A commuter airline plane(Honeymoon Airlines)-- consisting of one plane -- that flies couples to Vegas is hijacked by enemy spies to bring a new transformer for bombers across the border to Mexico. Sounds exciting? It isn't. The first half hour is more silly romantic comedy than action movie, and even when the hijack happens, the suspense is minimal, and the characters too dumb to relate to. One, a Boy Scout scoutmaster, actually starts a forest fire; another, a soon-to-be father, falls over everything in a lame attempt at slapstick. The film is a mish-mosh and not a good one.

Strangely, this B film is included in the Combat Pack (20 films)DVD collection available for $10.00 or less. The connection to "combat" or WW II is fleeting, at best.

One interesting note, though: horror film icon Dwight Frye (Renfield in the 1932/Lugosi Dracula has a small but typically over-the-top role as an enemy collaborator.

All in all . . . a yawner.
