Storyline

A new airplane that's equipped with a new computer that can fly the plane on its own is about to have its first flight. When the son of the owner decides to upload more software, he doesn't bother to check if there are any viruses with it. And he also invites some potential investors to try it. So the plane appears to be working well but suddenly it veers off course and it can't be shut down. When the military learns of this, they fear of something happening over a populated area and decide to shoot it down along with everyone on board. The man who built the computer whose wife is among the passengers thinks if he can get on board so that he might be able to shut it down and regain control of the plane. So the military using a new plane gets him on board. But what he didn't know is that both pilots are incapacitated so there's no one who can fly the plane. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

So substandard that you should see it to believe it
4 June 2010 | by fakkeldijSee all my reviews

This was broadcasted by commercial TV RTL who apparently have the distribution right and released it in Holland a few weeks ago. We estimated the movie to be from the '80's or earlier given the pathetic "special effects" (well, they were special - I'm sure my two 11 year's old nephews could have matched the computer art work easily). But it appeared to be brand new. The acting looked like it was some kind of parody on something but as nothing was funny we think it wasn't. The story, ...never mind. Goofs are sometimes hard to find but in this movie they are just common. The writer must never have been in a plane let alone the cockpit of it.

The 4 is because it's so bad that you should see it to believe and that makes it funny in a way....
