If you don't die from the impact, you'll die from laughing...
11 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Oh dear lord, this was hilarious. It was so bad and so full of errors that it was actually a great joy to watch. It was just one mistake after another, and for me it grew into a sport to spot the goof and errors in this movie. And trust me, there is a lot!

For starters when the very first thing appeared on the screen was The Asylum, then I knew this was going to be one of those movies. Yeah, you know which ones I am taking about, because The Asylum trademark is founded upon these laughable low-budget disaster (and monster) movies. And "Air Collision" is no different, and why should it be?

The story is about two air planes on a collision course with one another; one being a commercial carrier and the other is none other than Air Force One itself. Indeed, how very original. But it gets better, because everything that can go wrong, will go wrong in this movie, and that is what makes it so darned hilarious. The story itself is actually entertaining enough, that much credit should be given to The Asylum, but for everything else, well it is just a standard run of the low-budget disaster movie mill.

As for the cast tied into this movie, well initially I think people were doing an overall good enough job with the acting, given the material they had to work with. So it was not on this aspect that the movie was halting.

And as we all know (and love) about The Asylum and their movie productions, then they enjoy taking the same scene and show it repeatedly through the feature. And true enough, the same goes for this movie, a lot of repeated usage of the same footage over and over. Classic The Asylum stuff right there.

Then let's move on to some of the glorious mistakes and goofs throughout "Air Collision". For starters, the questionable CGI effects with the faulty satellites, that was just amazing. Especially because they all were faulty and fell down from the skies, most of them managing to strike populated areas, oddly enough, wonder if they had some kind of guidance system for their crash course. But questionable CGI is sort of part of The Asylum's trademark productions, so let's not linger too much about that.

When Dr. Antonia Pierce (played by Erin Coker) scaled the fence and was stopped by a soldier, that was just priceless. Let's back it up a notch, there was nowhere in the vicinity that the soldier could be hiding (or lurking), and yet the good Antonia couldn't see him, but immediately as she set foot on the ground he magically appeared and arrested her. That had got to be some impressive camouflaging on his part.

Or during the scene where the commercial airline had it's hull ripped open, and the people on board it managed to seal the massive gap in the hull with duffel bags and hand-carry trolleys. Wait, what? Seriously? Yeah! Seriously!

You just got to love the menacing sky that turns all purplish-pink with constant (and repeated footage) lightning over and over. But then in the next scene it is a clear blue sky with lazy clouds, but then later on turns back to purplish-pink. Pick one and stick with it already!

And lets not forget about the bearded hippie-like passenger with the headband who was sucked out of the air plane when the roof was missing, nothing wrong with that as per se. But then a couple of scenes later he was back in the plane, sitting comfortable in his seat. What the... So he was sucked out of the air plane, went for a spin through the air and miraculously returned back to the seat? How is it even possible to make a mistake like that?

Another of my favorite goofs was when Bob Abbot (played by Reginald VelJohnson) and his intern made it to the Cleveland Museum of Aviation and could just walk around there undisturbed by neither other visitors or guard personnel, and better yet, go up and start using, modifying and tinkering with museum exhibitions without anyone raising any objections, questions or even asking what was going on, that was just priceless. So no one except those two were at the museum? Yeah, that seems likely.

Alright, well aside from all these really, really bad mistakes and goofs, then "Air Collision" is not amongst the worst of movies to have been produced by The Asylum. And that being said, should actually weigh heavily in the mind of those familiar with their previous work.

"Air Collision" is far from a super great movie, but there are far worse and more ridiculous disaster movies available out there. This movie is worth watching, I suppose, if you are just laying about on the couch with no energy (possibly nurturing a bad hangover) and just want something silly to laugh at and be mildly entertained by.
