Overall, this is an entertaining thriller...
25 October 1999 | by (Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Airspeed is an interesting thriller that has as its only bad aspect the previsible plot.The basic idea reminds a lot the "airplane-flicks", but instead of a charming pilot as the hero, here the main character is a spoiled, boring and unfriendly teenager, Nicole, played to perfection by the talented French actress Elisha Cuthbert.Nicole is furious because she thinks that her powerful dad (Joe Mantegna) doesn't love her. Seems stereotype?it isn't, because Elisha Cuthbert plays her part so well that,in the first minutes, you will wish to blow her away, but that is what makes the girl such a brilliant actress: the capacity to make the audience fell something for the character.The storyline goes like this: after a violent storm, that damaged the plane's mechanism, this spoiled little rich kid will have to pilot the plane to the next airport and land it there. There are also other characters, like a crazed tower controller. Overall, Airspeed is worth of a look, by its great performances, by the good and fast rhythm and by some dramatic, tense and excellent scenes, such as the ending.
