This film is about a group of people on an International flight which leaves from England during an oncoming storm. It's the last flight allowed to leave the airport. On that flight is an ancient vase from China, but is it cursed? As the flight gets further away from where it departed from it soon becomes apparent that something is not right on board. Strange things start to happen and people start going missing, but how can that be when it's only a 747? Where are they? And what's behind it all? Someone knows more than they're letting on to.

This is one of those low budget British movies that drags in loads and loads of familiar faces so that their names can be plastered all over the DVD cover to hopefully shift a few copies. It seems to be made by the same sort of producers who released the likes of DEAD CERT and loads of other recent British gangster movies.
AIRBORNE is a plane-bound horror-cum-thriller that mixes up both a tale of supernatural possession with a more conventional hijacking-turned-robbery. It's a story that plays its cards very close to its chest for the most part, refusing to reveal much to the viewer until the last 20 minutes; as a result it's the sort of film to start making you feel restless over the amount of questions asked (and lack of forthcoming answers). On the other hand, it's often tense and sometimes exciting, featuring some mild gore and plenty of twists to keep you watching. The production values are good enough so that you don't notice the lack of budget, and the strong cast helps.
Mark Hamill is featured prominently on the packaging but turns out to have one of those boring "guy on the ground" roles, but the other cast members fare better. The wonderful Alan Ford plays to type as a gangster, Billy Murray is the usual tough guy, and Andrew Shim acquits himself very well as a soldier. The only weak spot in the cast is Gemma Atkinson who comes across as totally wooden playing a stewardess; who told her she could act?
