When a hostage situation arises on-board a private plane with the daughter of a billionaire on-board. Major John Masters (Sabato Jr.) teams up with Captain Williams (Michael Paré) to stop the terrorist and land the plane.
A private flight for a billionaire's daughter and her friends becomes a hellish ordeal when the plane is overtaken by a team of terrorists, plotting to hold the billionairess hostage. But there is one thing the hijackers didn't count on - Major John Masters, who is also on board. Within a matter of minutes the situation spirals out of control, resulting in a wounded pilot, several dead, and a severely damaged plane. Now, Masters must somehow land the plane on a small Pacific island despite a category five hurricane if they hope to survive-that is if Captain Williams and his team can finish the runway in time...

At takeoff, the Captain advances the throttles, two of them. There are four engines on a Boeing 747. The aircraft they show taking off is either a Boeing 757 or 767 a twin engine jet, but the aircraft they show in the air is a Boeing 747, a 4 engine jet. See more »
nothing new for this genre(and pretty boring) (4.5/10)
i guess the problem i have with this movie is i have seen it before,and it's done better every time.for a movie about a plane being hijacked,this one has pretty much no thrills or excitement.and the acting is not the best i have seen,to be polite.i found the dialogue cringe worthy for the most part.and there doesn't seem to be a lot of realism to it either.EchoBridge has something to do with this production.i have seen a fair amount of their movies,and other than this one,i have thought they were well done.but everyone is entitled to a misstep now and then.besides,this is just my view of the movie.i would'nt say this is an awful movie.it's just nothing new for the genre,and it is pretty slow.i guess i'd give Crash Landing a 4.5/10
