B-graded action flick!!

Chuck Taylor is a charter pilot of a cesna plane and when he just has landed on a airport he's arrested for drugs smuggling. When he comes in prison he meets the bad guy. He breaks out and decides to bring to true bad guys to justice.

Fun Film to watch but it is not the best i've ever seen. Don't expect great plot lines or a great story, just action nothing more nothing less. Just enjoy this movie when you're not in the mood for thinking.
