With Britain battered by a storm, one last plane takes off. Shortly after, passengers start disappearing one by one. Those that remain frantically try to discover who - or what - is behind it before they share the same fate.
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. When 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, they fear of something happening over a populated area and decide 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 so that 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
Oh Lord! Another dreadful, cliché ridden, air disaster film. I laughed all the way through.It made Airplane look like a Shakespearean production. Even if you never worked in the airline industry (as I did) you could not help but notice the many glaring inaccuracies. At least I got to see it for free on HBO. I wouldn't have been laughing so much if I had paid to see it in a cinema. I often wonder if actors really know what their signing up for when they agree to do films like this, or are they just desperate for the money! You also have to wonder who the technical adviser was for this disaster of a disaster film... Oh hang on, maybe it was meant to be a comedy??!!
