Editorial Reviews

After pilot error causes a devastating airline crash, Devain Industries unveils the CD70 -- a revolutionary automated system invented by Tom Woodard (Casper Van Dien) and his wife Samantha (Nicole Eggert of ''Baywatch'') designed to someday make human pilots obsolete. But when reckless playboy Charles Devain (Patrick Muldoon of Starship Troopers and ''Melrose Place'') and his billionaire father (Brad Dourif of Halloween and ''Deadwood'') insist on using the prototype for a celebratory VIP flight from Los Angeles to New York City, a computer virus triggers a terrifying chain of events: The 747 goes off-course during a lightning storm. Their communication systems are dead. And the Pentagon wants to blast the crippled jet -- and its passengers -- out of the sky. Even if Tom can make a mid-air transfer at 30,000 feet, will he be able to disengage the infected system, or will Tom and the passengers fall victim to Turbulent Skies?

1.0 out of 5 stars IT HURTS. MAKE IT STOP MOMMY! March 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A plane's engine is on fire. The pilot opts to cut off the fuel in flight to stop the fire, however the engine doesn't restart and the plane crashes. The operator was blamed for "human error" even though the black box (never mentioned) would have exonerated the pilot. Brad Dourif plays the evil capitalist wanting to exploit the accident to promote his new CD-70 automatic pilot, based on predator drone technology. Casper Van Dien is not too sure about using the M-5 eh ah CD-70. Lets see...if I was to guess they use the CD-70, it messes up and Casper must save the day by killing giant alien bugs. And the reason why I am guessing is that it became too painful to watch the film all the way through. It was bad...real bad, as in destroy your copy, don't give it away bad.

The acting and script felt like a bad movie made for TV circa 1975. Don't waste your time or money.

Have you been missing the delightfully cheesy disaster films of yore? I know I have. The preposterous "Turbulent Skies" is a kissing cousin to the camp classic "Airport 1975" without the star wattage, overwrought performances, or manic intensity. Combining the estimable talents of Casper van Dien, Nicole Eggert, and Patrick Muldoon--it's not like I expected this film to compete for Oscars. I'd just hoped for a bit more fun. Everyone plays it far too straight (where's a cross-eyed Karen Black when you need her?) and the resultant film is patently dull as opposed to genuine B-movie magic. The screenplay is riddled with holes and lapses of logic, the film just needed to embrace its inherent silliness and go with it. But by asking us to take it seriously and to care, the director has missed his chance to elevate this to campy greatness. As is, only the most stalwart fans of one of the leads might be interested in this rather tedious exercise. There are plenty of more effective low budget adventures in the DVD marketplace--try to catch this on cable sometime before plopping down hard earned dollars to own it!

The film centers around a new piece of technology that will revolutionize air travel. An auto-pilot device that will make humans obsolete has been developed by Eggert and team. On the test voyage, corporate greed takes over and Muldoon (the requisite bad guy) outfits a commercial airline with the device and invites investors to fly with the untested (and tampered with) unit controlling the plane. I loved how all this happened rather spontaneously--as if there wouldn't be a billion federal regulations to navigate. Soon a 747 is loaded with potential victims (By loaded, I mean 12 people. Seriously--3 corporate representatives, 4 crew members, 2 reporters, and 3 investors).

Good story but I felt that the plot could have been a little better. Good way to have family time together

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fliying Nightmare February 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A new "pilotless" commercial airplane veers off course and is about to be shot down by the military, along with everyone onboard. The only chance to save the passengers is if the man who built the computer can regain control. But first he has to get on the plane!

2.0 out of 5 stars Leaves one wanting.. January 9, 2014
From the very beginning I was able to tell this film was not going to maintain any type of believeability. At the beginning of the film one sees a Boeing 737, thereafter is the crash but it is using Boeing 727. The makers of this film simply did not do their homework.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nicole Eggert fans, pass on this July 4, 2012
The other reviews are right that this movie isn't campy, it's just boring and numbing. I watched it because I'm a fan of Nicole Eggert. Yes, she makes B movies, but I find her sexy and fun. Not anymore. She was neither in this, just old. -- Keith Vlasak

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok, i'll admit it's lame October 25, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I typically like Casper Van Dien's low budget stuff, but i have to admit this felt a little under cooked.
Computerized plane goes out of control, passengers freak out, Casper comes to the rescue, and it's all settled in lightning speed. If i had to pinpoint a problem, it's a lack of real tension. The plot is just a little too simplistic to serve as a compelling action-adventure vehicle. Still, it's not his worst film.
