AIRLINE DISASTER

Customer Reviews

The movie as a whole wasn't bad.
kcp
After the terrorists shoot at the plane's wiring (surely a bright thing to do in a completely automated aircraft, no?)
Robert I. Hedges
The acting is bad, the story is ridiculous, the special effects primitive, the sets primitive.

Oh, where to start? As an active airline pilot, sometimes well-meaning friends will send me airplane movies for my entertainment. That is normally a bad thing, and I dislike the vast majority of airplane disaster films, but none more so than the appalling "Airline Disaster." This one is so bad that I won't even start on the technical and procedural impossibilities of the movie, other than to question if anyone involved with the making of this movie can tell the front end of a plane from the back. (OK, I guess at least the CGI people can....) The film opens with the hilarious looking "Starquest" fully automated airliner (think of a badly rendered child's concept of a 747 with scimitar shapes for wings and control surfaces) departing on its maiden voyage under the command of Captain Joe Franklin ("Family Ties" alum Scott Valentine.) It has (of course) been infiltrated by bad guys and a couple of federal agents. On the ground there are bad guys kidnapping the Captain's family. Who could these evildoers be? Of course they are members of a PC-approved enemy (can you guess who?) known for so many crimes against aviation. (Not.)

The FBI and Secret Service gets involved, and the President immediately starts meeting with high level advisors in a claustrophobic conference room. Who's the President, you may ask? Well, it's yet another "Family Ties" veteran, Meredith Baxter as President Franklin, and sister of Captain Joe, of course. This President is the most hand-wringingly inept of the genre's Oval Office occupants. "Family Ties" actually had more genuine terror and suspense, and much more nuanced characters.

Briefly put, this "film" is a disaster, but not of the airline variety. Acting is amateurish and over-the-top by one and all, special effects are pathetic throughout, and the movie's continuity supervisor was asleep at the switch (to put it mildly). Witness: 25 minutes into the film, one of three Air Force interceptor planes is destroyed in mid-air, leaving only TWO in hot pursuit. One minute later, (@ 26:00) there are THREE planes chasing the hijacked aircraft once again! A few minutes more into the film . . . only TWO remain. Truly pathetic, as is this entire effort. Meredith, I have always loved your work. PLEASE choose your projects more carefully in the future, OK?

The movie as a whole wasn't bad. It was suppose to be a suspenseful disaster flick and it was. And While the minor characters were guilty of overacting, Meredith Baxter was refreshingly believable as the President.I had no idea she was that talented .Scott Valentine was quite good too, as was his co-pilot once the early dialogue was over. The special effects were truly lousy though. The worst being the last scene, but none were believable in this fx age. The high point, however, being Meredith Baxter as President. I wish it had been a "headier" movie for that character.

The plot is about as unoriginal as they come. It resembles one of the Die-Hard movies. However, the Diehard movies actually had decent acting, scripting, and directing. This movie goes down in the biggest fireball since the Hindenburg. It's actually worse than any made-for TV movie that I've seen. I would go so far to speculate that this movie was an experiment to see how cheaply and badly a movie could be made, but still make a profit from an unsuspecting audience.
If this movie had been scripted as a comedy like "Airplane!", it might have been entertaining. Some of the shots of the cabin pandemonium right before the crash look as if they were plucked directly from "Airplane!". They cut to the exact same shot perhaps a half dozen times, with the same idiotic fake screaming.
The CGI looks like it was done by high school kids - no exaggeration. The physics are incredibly bad. The airplane hits several structures without so much as a scratch on itself. Then, it hits the Washington monument and obliterates it - again, without so much as a scratch. Any upright walking descendant of an ape realizes that exactly the opposite would happen.
I'd guess that each scene was shot only once no matter how bad it was. The only decent acting among the main characters was from Lindsey McKeon in the scenes where she didn't talk. Those scenes saved her from the horrible writing/scripting.
The only way to see another film this bad is to go see Titanic II - which has the same writer.

I cannot understand how the folks who made this thing could have attached their names to it. The acting is bad, the story is ridiculous, the special effects primitive, the sets primitive. it is, bar none, one of the wost films I have wasted time on in years. (I fast forwarded through most of it just to see if any part was worthwhile.) No luck.

This movie was a complete waste of my time! The acting was poor and the CGI was terrible. There are repeated scenes when both the pilot and co-pilot are struggling with the aircraft's control yoke as if that airplane had steel control cables going both to the wings and the empennage. As a former pilot I shook my head in disbelief. Modern planes of that size have computer controls just like the space shuttles. In conclusion: a terrible movie!
