Storyline

Prepared for a routine flight across the Pacific, lonely widower and pilot Jack Russell maneuvers his jet into the sky and unknowingly tightens the gap between his passengers and doom. Lying dormant in the craft's hull is a secret shipment of genetically engineered Scorpion fetuses, the creation of Dr. Jennifer Ryan and her team of biochemists for the purpose of discovering a vaccine. At the same time, Yaffi and his brother Sudan sneak onto the airplane speaking in hushed tones about a conspiracy of their own; to smuggle themselves into America. One of Jennifer's most trusted colleagues uses this opportunity to break into the cargo hold and steal the Scorpions. Each fetus sleeps submerged in a jell liquid inside its own glass container. While transferring the fetuses from their secure metal unit the scientist is discovered by security. A desperate fight ensues, containers break, and the Scorpions open their ugly black eyes.

Really bad, really funny, tobacco commercial
2 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of movies are made by people whose only intentions are to make the worst movie festival list, while at the same time advocating a certain cause or backer. This is obviously one of those movies (In this case the cause is blatantly pro tobacco). The premise of giant scorpions loose on a plane is silly, but a good writer could have made something of it. Here, it's a hodgepodge of stereotypes so stereotypical you'll bust out laughing. Even the bad preppy guy is stereotypical even for stereotypes. Of course the real hero in this movie is tobacco. The one pilot who survives, and who looks like he jogs and works out every day, mentions over and over that he is a smoker. Not since "Constantine" has so much literal smoke been shoved into a viewer's face. This doesn't even make sense, however. I've seen a few women work out types who smoke, but never seen one attractive male who smoked. But this is made by the tobacco industry. Not worth going out to see, but if someone forces you to watch it, you could do worse. Sure beats watching an Adam Sandler movie, but that's about it.
