Trivia

The fictitious airline is Erebus Air. The name is derived from Mount Erebus--a volcano in Antarctica. On November 28, 1979, Air New Zealand Flight 901 crashed on its flanks, killing all 257 passengers & crew. Most of the wreckage remains on Mount Erebus to this day. See more »

Goofs

The airliner is completely white (save for a blue design near the tail), but in several close-ups the cockpit is shown to be in a blue stripe. Also, the aircraft is what appears to be an Airbus A340, but close-ups from outside the cockpit show it be that of a much older propeller-driven airliner. See more »

Don't get your hopes up...
21 June 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Right, well with a title like "Airplane vs Volcano" you know exactly what you are getting yourself into. Despite that, then I was a bit skeptic when I saw The Asylum name make an appearance on the screen during the opening scenes. But still, I continued to watch the movie, because it might just be one of those rare instances where The Asylum completely surprises with a unique experience...

...But that was not the case. Not by a long shot.

This movie was ridiculous in concept and execution. A massive ring of volcanoes erupt in a violent outburst, trapping a commercial airplane in the midst. And the only people on the entire world paying attention to it is a small group of soldiers stationed in something that looks more like an outdoor shack dressed up to be a military command post than it actually looked like an official military installation.

The CGI effects weren't too bad actually, I will say that much. But the constant repetitive usage of scenes was wearing thin within no time, even if the director tried to throw off the audience by flipping and mirroring the scene. But come on, it fools no one.

The characters in the movie were non-distinct, and they could all have been extras and fillers, because no one really stood out. You could say that they are one-dimensional and generic.

If you enjoy disaster movies, there are some far better movies out there, and I can't really come up with a valid reason for recommending this movie, aside from if you are a fan of anyone on the cast list.
