Storyline

There have been two mysterious plane crashes in only 48 hours. The aircraft suddenly lose control and crash, killing everyone aboard. A woman of Russian descent, Francesca Zaborszin, the daughter of a slain Federal investigator, claims responsibility for the crashes. She believes her father was killed by the FBI as part of a cover-up operation and wishes to avenge his death by threatening to down more aircraft using the same electromagnetic pulse method. She also intends to crash a stolen military jet into the White House. There's no time to ground the planes: just enough time to try to stop her. Written by Sergio Ortega

Some redeeming features makes this not all bad
11 September 2018 | by michaelberanek275See all my reviews

OK there are numerous flaws, some a little laughable with respect to continuity, plausibility and underdeveloped dialogue, but there's enough to like for the aviation technology enthusiast, and some pacey and dramatic elements. The genuinely Russian female lead is very good - mixing malice with vulnerability and soars above her peers. The actual bits of tech and effects are, well, so nineties, but delightfully quaint. The handing over of floppy disc, yes a floppy disk reportedly capable of holding critical super-bomber mission telemetry raised a snigger, and the obiquius video displays looked pre-PacMan, but all that added to a period appeal. There is an obsession with GPS as some kind of modern mystery. The back story/plot for want of better word is a little sketchy, baffling and tangential, but there's no diversion in the clear trajectory of the testosterone-laced heroic action plot, and the booming and shaking sound effects make the pair of obvious model super-planes that feature in many ways the biggest stars. Overall, quite fun and even dramatic in places.
