Wonderful low budget Film
11 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Made with very little, Turbulence 3 uses its budget very wisely and manages to tell a fairly big story on an intimate movie budget.

Great casting is where it started, and it's actually amazing to see the number of really good actors that the producers of the movie managed to assemble.

But it would all go for naught without a good story, and a good story it is.

Very well-paced, it just keeps you involved with likable characters until the end.

Very worth seeing.
