Storyline

There have been two mysterious plane crashes in only 48 hours. The aircraft suddenly lose control and crash, killing everyone aboard. A woman of Russian descent, Francesca Zaborszin, the daughter of a slain Federal investigator, claims responsibility for the crashes. She believes her father was killed by the FBI as part of a cover-up operation and wishes to avenge his death by threatening to down more aircraft using the same electromagnetic pulse method. She also intends to crash a stolen military jet into the White House. There's no time to ground the planes: just enough time to try to stop her. Written by Sergio Ortega

I belive the word is 'Lame'
15 April 2000 | by (Huntsville, Alabama) – See all my reviews

Good lord, this is atrocious. I went in expecting very little, but this didn't deliver what I was expecting. I was thinking some decent explosions and some dogfighting and whatnot, mixed with bad acting and lame lines with cool special effects.

First, we have the explosions/dogfighting/special effects. The movie, as the title indicates, is about a top-secret (and, according to conspiracy theorists, real) plane code-named 'Aurora' which is far faster than anything we currently have, carries more bombs, Nevada to Baghdad in 2 hours, that sort of thing. The planes are computer generated, by and large, and not very well at that.

Perhaps I'm a bad judge, since I play with computer animations quite a bit myself. But, at the same time, -I- (as an amateur!) could have done better graphics for planes, explosions, missles, and the like on my home computer. Really, not good.

Next we have plot/scripting/acting. I came in not expecting much, and I got what I expected. Most of the plot is minor setups for more shots of planes chasing planes being chased by missles. (No machine guns anywhere in the movie. Not one.) The acting is primarily 'This is aurora one, targetting aurora two, preparing to fire, missles away' type of stuff. The actual acting to be done was weak at best.

Worth a good laugh or if you wanna know what really bad movies look like. Never ever ever pay for it. (I saw it on cinemax, so I didn't really pay for it, thankfully) Don't rent it, only watch it on the premium channels when there's _nothing_ else on.
