Storyline

When a new airplane that's equipped with a new computer that can fly the plane on its own, is about to have its first flight. But the son of the owner decides to upload more software, he doesn't bother to check if there are any viruses with it. And he also invites some potential investors to try it. So the plane appears to be working well but suddenly it veers off course and it can't be shut down. When the military learns of this and fears what if something happens if it's over a populated area; decides to shoot it down along with everyone on board. The man who built the computer whose wife is among the passengers thinks if he can get on board he might be able to shut it down and regain control of the plane. So the military using a new plane gets him on board. But what he didn't know is that both pilots are incapacitated so there's no one who can fly the plane. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Flying destination to nowhere...
23 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are worse disaster movies out there than Turbulent Skies, it at least has some novelty value in how goofy it is, but it is still poorly done in many ways. The movie has a cheap and grainy-coloured look to it, right from the choppy way it's edited and the effects at best are laughable. The music sounds very cheesy, the ambiance has a lot to do with it, and is often inappropriately used. For example like drowning out what's happening and what's being said or being scored in a way that jars with the mood of the scene. You even laugh hearing the dialogue and not in a good way, it sounds very awkward and often delivered in a strained way, the worst of the lines causing unintentional humour. The dramatic parts seem melodramatic and ham-fisted and parts that should be fun have no tension whatsoever and are so ridiculous even for a disaster movie, a genre where suspension of disbelief happens a lot but this ridiculousness comes across as insulting. The story has novelty value, but often goes at a pedestrian pace, it's so predictable you have no problem what happens next and there is very little sense that anybody cares about the situation they're in, diluting any kind of suspense and tension. The acting is poor too, not even Brad Dourif, a talented actor who has had his share of good films, can save it. Casper Van Dien, who's quite wooden here, and Patrick Muldoon can't do anything with their material and most of the cast don't even try to act. Nicole Eggert's cleavage has more personality than them. In conclusion, very bad in pretty much every area apart from some novelty value, and that's only really if you're in a generous mood. 2/10 Bethany Cox
