Storyline

A private flight for a billionaire's daughter and her friends becomes a frightening ordeal when the plane is overtaken by a team of terrorists, plotting to hold the billionairess hostage. But there is one thing the hijackers didn't count on - Major John Masters, who is also on board. Within a matter of minutes the situation spirals out of control, resulting in a wounded pilot, several dead, and a severely damaged plane. Now, Masters must somehow land the plane on a small Pacific island despite a category five hurricane if they hope to survive-that is if Captain Williams and his team can finish the runway in time.

Mildly entertaining here and there
10 February 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

CRASH LANDING is a cheapo DIE HARD on a plane type film which runs out of steam around two-thirds in, turning into a cheapo disaster-type flick instead. Although it's pretty shoddily made and offers only mild entertainment value to the seasoned viewer, I have to say that it's the best film I've seen from B-movie director Jim Wynorski to date.

An ever-youthful Antonio Sabato, Jr. stars as a security guard working aboard a private plane that gets taken over by a terrorist gang. The usual low-rent shoot-em-up heroics ensue, all of them handled adroitly by the cast and crew; there's absolutely nothing here we haven't seen before, but the pot keeps on bubbling merrily away nonetheless.

Sadly, once the terrorist stuff is dispensed with, CRASH LANDING takes a nose dive for the worse, and even the presence of tough guy actor Michael Pare can't save it. Instead, we're bombarded with cheesy CGI effects and some hilarious plot holes (wait until you see what happens - or rather doesn't happen - to the pilot!). This hardly makes for a great film, but I've seen plenty worse recently so it didn't appear to be too bad overall.
