Storyline

Having taken the blame for an accident beyond his control, pilot Mike Hogan has been on administrative leave indefinitely; however when the airline is desperately short of staff, he is offered to be first officer and accepts, without enthusiasm, received with disdain by the well-connected commander. Surprisingly his come-back proves less then routine, as the captain gets knocked out and a collision as well as a murderer being transported by police require courageous action from Mike, his crew and several passengers, including soccer star Ty Conner. Written by KGF Vissers

Nice film to relax
24 July 2011 | by iasukaSee all my reviews

I happen rather to like the film. Clichés? Yes. Inaccuracies? Tons of it. For instance, all modern airliners should have cargo bay isolated from passenger cabin and sudden depressurization of latter is hardly possible.

So what is there to like? For me it is overall... tranquility. Unlike most modern thrillers, this film leaves your nerves undamaged. It just looks reasonable. No maniacs, no superheroes, no dark forces, no anything like that. Just "good ole boys" doing what they can for people around them. And that is very refreshing. You could think that film is made in 70s or 80s.

So, all in all, this is a nice film to relax at night. Just don't expect much thrill and you'll be all right.

Thank you.
