Storyline

In this action-packed drama, a group of people who have completed a therapy program to overcome their severe fear of flying celebrate with a group flight to L.A. However, they soon discover that there are perfectly good reasons to be afraid of airliners - a group of terrorists hijack the jet, murdering the pilot and threatening to kill all the passengers with chemical weapons. With the captain's chair empty, one of the passengers is forced to bring the plane safely to the ground. Written by Mark Deming

Ed Wood Lives !
23 June 2000 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly awful film, a purported "sequel" (in name only, methinks) to the Ray Liotta film "Turbulence"m made in 1997.

Well, its three years later, and Liotta is nowhere in sight, but this goofy film, about a group of "fear of flying" types who are beset on their voyage by hijackers, bad weather, and pretty much anything else that can go wrong on a flight, also goes by the name "Turbulence II", probably for video purposes.

Alas, this "Fear of Flying" ain't a film version of Erica Jong's novel, just a very silly film that uses about a half dozen sets, some really comical performances, and some not-too-great visual effects that would make Ed Wood envious.

Its really odd seeing good actors like Craig Sheffer, Jennifer Beals and Tom Berenger trying to work with this bad script.

Even more bizarre (for me, anyways) was the sight of Jeffrey Nordling, of the ABC dramedy "Once and Again", sporting an inept European accent, attempting to bonk Beals in the lavatory of the plane, which, in my experience, are hardly big enough for one, let alone two people coupling !

Oh well, what else can I say ?

The portentous music, horrible acting,bad plotting,and terrible effects make "Turbulence II:Fear of Flying" a film experience that will cause all Ed Wood fans to rejoice - He lives !
