Exciting, though it hit some turbulence, but it recovered
22 June 2004 | by vchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

I didn't see the original, but this one was pretty good all on its own. It starts with a 'Fear of Flying' class being taught by a flight attendant using a simulator, followed by the 'final exam', a flight on a Trans Con Air 747 from Seattle to Los Angeles. One of the flight attendants is late, and when he finally does arrive, he is new and no one seems to know who he is. And a group of suspicious-acting Eastern Europeans gets on the plane. And we know one of the students in the 'Fear of Flying' class has an evil plan, but we don't know which one he is. Martin, another of the students, lost someone in a plane crash and became an aeronautical engineer as a result. Amazingly, Jessica, yet another student, wants to be a flight attendant.

The movie was almost a comedy at first, but when everything started happening (and I mean everything--if it could go wrong on a plane, it did), it was clear this was not going to be funny. Much of the time, anyway. I was amazed that with all the great jokes in 'Airplane!' that they missed a possible one. But the similarities between 'Airplane!' and this movie end with the fact that in both movies, numerous crises had to be overcome. Eventually, this movie got ridiculous and I thought I wasn't going to enjoy it any more. It was also more violent than it had to be--just the threat of violence would have been enough to make it exciting. But then the movie got back on track, and the problems just kept multiplying, and one might wonder how anyone could make everything right again. The answer--only in Hollywood! But it was exciting to watch nevertheless. The movie hit 'turbulence' again, but then it was smooth sailing to a fascinating finish that could never happen.

Overall, I liked it. I want to see no. 1 and no. 3.
