Well, right from the moment I laid eyes on the cover to this movie, I thought this was going to be one of those movies. You know the kind that I am talking about, the movies that you just know are going to be crappy. And I was right, no doubt about it.
First of all the story, well parts of it were alright, but parts of it were ridiculous. The Aryan Brotherhood? What? Why? Why would they be causing something like that? I am not pro or con to the Aryan Brotherhood, but the usage of their organization and name in a movie of this type seemed so out of place. Secondly, there were so many mistakes and dumb things throughout the movie. The sky marshal on the plane? Was he blind? Or had he just gone to the Evil Henchman School of Aiming? He was the worst marksman ever! The effects in the movie were, well lets just say questionable. The CGIs were mostly watchable, but not really believable.
It was funny to see Scott Valentine and Meredith Baxter together on the screen again. Most from my age would probably remember them playing together in the "Family Ties" TV show.
Well, this movie was bearable to watch, but definitely not one that you would want to return to again later for a second viewing. There are far worse disaster movies out there than this one, though. If you have nothing else to watch, and just want to lay waste to an hour and a half, then this could do the trick. But I highly doubt it, as there are far more interesting movies out there to pick from.
