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

Intrigue and aerial action with predictable plot but some moment exciting
24 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

The movie tells about a mysterious aircrafts with navigation systems failure crash ,dieing everybody aboard.Another plane suddenly(whose pilot is Corbin Bersen)lose control and crash.Francesca(Natalya Andrejchenko)suspects government is behind her father's killing as a cover-up operation and she develops a technology using an electromagnetic pulse method by means of controlling GPS (Global Position Satellites)formed by 25 satellites for aerial navigation.She threatens to blowing up civilian planes until the murderer is brought to justice.Commander(Bruce Payne)along with officer(John Stockwell)are assigned by Secretary State(Lance Henriksen) to dangerous mission.They navigate into secret aircraft called Aurora 2,a top-secret,ultra sophisticated warplane, with GPS emergency shut down and the target located Aurora 1 must to be destroyed and placed in Kazakhistan,Central Asia.They are taken prisoners and tortured by sadist warden(Dennis Christopher).Meanwhile Francesca threatens to destroy the White House and the Commander's family who's flying in plane.

The movie packs suspense,noisy action,violence and aerial combats about low-altitude fight.The picture is predictable and low-budgeted though on the final contains a plot twisted.Spectacular aerial sequences and aerial battles images but with mediocre FX but are filmed on night sets.The tough starring is Bruce Payne,leaving his usual roles as baddie(Riders,Dungeons and dragons,Passenger 57,Highlander),the revenger Natalya Andrejchenko(married with Maximilian Schell), a cold Lance Henriksen(Milennium,Terminator,Aliens).Besides appear John Stockwell,today a famed director(Blue crush,Into the blue,Turistas), Dennis Christopher(Fade to black,It,Necronomicon) and Corbin Bersen(L.A. law) in a role very secondary.Spectacular soundtrack adjusted to action by Richard Marvin(U571,Lost battalion).The motion picture is regularly directed by Paul Levine. Rating : Below than average but with some moments entertaining.
