Storyline

A fully automated commercial jetliner is prepared to make its maiden voyage. Without an on-flight pilot, the craft relies on satellite linking for its course. But when the plane suddenly deviates from its determined route and establishes a circular pattern over Seattle, it becomes evident that the craft has been hijacked by a disgruntled former airline employee who has hacked into the flight's computer system from his apartment, somewhere in the United States. Now, a former discredited Navy pilot and an oddball technician must race against the clock to find where the angry employee is, and regain control of the plane before it crashes into the city.

Under pressure
24 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Something about a computer hacker hijacking the first self-driven plane is what you'll get in this instantly forgettable made-for-TV cut-rate thriller. Not awful enough to outright detest, bu not nearly competent enough to get invested in the film. I guess the most one can say for I is that it is wahat it is. Nothing special to see more. Good fodder for having something as background noise while you do something else. Not the type of film that you'll miss any huge plot points if you choose to only pay fleeting attention to. The most noteworthy thing is that it took 5 writers to come up with this tripe.
