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

Another Dull Air-disaster movie
7 October 2001 | by r_longdenSee all my reviews

After sitting through this movie, I know that I can sit through anything. In a few simple words, It was poor. I explain my reasons below as to why I believe this.

The movie uses a lot of cliches, which you tend to think to yourself 'oh no, not this again!' as you have seen in another air-disaster movie. It also fails to give you any surprises or really bad compromising positions, because you get 'warned' about them before they happen. Warned in inverted commas because it is not a direct in-your-face warning but more of a subtle one, so that if you are concentrating slightly, you will get what's about to happen.

There is obviously a romance, which I think could have been left out and we, the public, would not miss a thing. Another thing that struck me was how they all seemed to remain quite calm on the plane, even though terrible things keep happening!

More screaming and a more tense atmosphere were needed to make this movie ten times better. Definitely not a recommended movie, but more of a I-dont-know-what-to-do-this-Sunday-so-I'll-watch-a-movie !
