Moves, but not Moving
29 September 1999 | by Mr Blue-4See all my reviews

A Canadian (check the funny accents, eh) family action film that aspires to be a Cameron-esque drama headed by a teenage girl. She is the one conscious person aboard a private jet struck by lightning. Air traffic controllers on the ground and some military types in the air try to help her, first, get off the plane, then land it when she's stuck on it.

I don't have it in for this film as the previous posters. But I gotta say the staging of how this girl manages to be the only person on the plane to survive the lightning strike is, well, not good. Things get off to a rather shaky start to get the piece setup. After that, things move along, although a little less propelled by actual drama than a step by step chronicle of attempted solutions and subsequent problems.

Of course, a built in problem with this, esp. a family film, is that we never doubt the girl is going to be okay. Not that with any other conventional film we wouldn't expect something like that, but even with a "Airport '75", you know Charlton Heston is going to make it to the end of the film, but you're not sure he'll make it alive. So if this is going to work for you at all, you must be content going in that you absolutely know where it'll end:you're just along for the ride.

The young girl is adequate. Joe Mantenga seems to be acting while holding his mortgage payment in his hands. No one makes a strong impression, for good or ill, except one of the supporting players whose accent screams "North of the Border."
