Airborne -- When a storm starts closing in, air traffic controller Malcolm (Mark Hamill, Star Wars) sends one last plane into the sky - but after takeoff, the passengers aboard discover the pilots have been brutally murdered. Suddenly the plane disappears from radar, and one by one, the people aboard turn into dangerous, bloody psychopaths.
Airborne -- As a snow storm closes in, one final plane takes off. The plane reports to the ground that both pilots are dead, while the slowly dwindling number of passengers on the plane wish that they'd never left the ground.

Factual errors: During takeoff, the pilot increases the throttle. However, there are only two throttles controls shown. The Boeing 747-200 should have four, one for each engine.See more »

I really wanted to like this.....and It wasn't that bad, 29 July 2012

With my expectations of viewing a 3.0 film this thing might actually have exceeded them, though not too much. There are numerous plot holes & some novice acting throughout but somehow I was unable to stop watching, maybe I'm just a sucker for B movie airplane horrors. There was just enough mystery & level of suspense to rope me in to the end, even though I was sure I would be rolling my eyes over it. Actually there was quite a bit of eye rolling, I laughed at a good part of it. I won't even begin to lay down the plot, I went in blind & I think that's why it worked. There were a few recognizable actors from the UK to give credit to with Craig Conway & Billy Murray, both with long careers in many memorable films, though they may have been limited with the script here. Hell at least it was better than a SyFy channel film although I don't recommend going to any great lengths to obtain this time killer.

If you choose to rent it on PPV just be sure it's either on $.99 special or that you just happen to be a fan of the genre in the mood for an off beat suspense/thriller to have fun with while you wait for people to die. I'll give it a 5/10 it tried & while it failed in some areas it was entertaining to the end, not bad for 2AM & a laugh. Anyone who says this is the worst they have seen has a VERY limited experience in the genre!
