Did You Know?


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 »


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 »

Is this what a Lobotomy feels like?
3 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

....... I can't think right now...

.... I literally cannot think right now...

Okay, my mind is recovering: well, me and my family decided to sit down and watch some television on a very mundane Tuesday evening. Finding little to watch, we ultimately stumbled across the SyFy channel. There we took notice in the brilliant title "Airplane vs Volcano." It may have been better to just watch a blank wall for the equivalent amount of time that this movie took up. Me, my family, and even our dog lost IQ points for having sat through this.

If you are capable of suspending all belief and thought, then you might let this movie pass for not being the dumbest thing you've ever seen in your entire life.

To sum up this movie: random volcanoes spike out of the earth, and Dean Cain pilots an airplane stuck in autopilot. If that sounds appealing to you, good luck!
