By Andrew McCaffrey VINE VOICE on November 6, 2010
Format: DVD
A commercial airliner is hopeless damaged and falling from the sky. The captain is incapacitated; the crew are panicked and inexperienced. TV-movie regular Eric Roberts is the only man on-board who can fly the craft, but he's still haunted and traumatized by the accident that occurred the last time he was behind the stick solo.

The plot summary poses one immediate question to the audience: is this in fact a remake of AIRPLANE! done by people who didn't realize the original was a comedy?

It would appear so. As an added bonus, leading lady Alexandra Paul even bears a striking resemblance to Julie Hagerty.

The plot of this film is indeed very similar to AIRPLANE!, but not in the way that the plot of DR. STRANGELOVE is similar to FAIL-SAFE. More in the way that the plot of INDEPENDENCE DAY is similar to the works of H. G. Wells.

Events conspire to put a totally inept and egotistical young pilot on a flight from London to Boston that is already running several hours late. A massive storm is brewing over the Atlantic. Unknown to anyone, the cargo bay door is about to fall off. One passenger is armed, dangerous and desperate. Cost-cutting measures have left the vessel dangerously low on fuel.

The full name of made-for-TVer "Rough Air" is ROUGH AIR: DANGER ON FLIGHT 534. This one is far from Eric Roberts' shining moment. The movie has been accurately described as an unfunny version of AIRPLANE! (1980).

Roberts is a disgraced pilot riding the co-pilot seat who must take over a disintegrating jet liner when the assigned captain goes off his nut. Clichés escape from every mouth; an overly-predictable script becomes quickly tedious; cheap-o computer-graphics are fakey as all get-out. Despite the loss of a cargo door, rapid cabin decompression and part of the craft's tail section falling off, passengers remain without oxygen masks in a Zen-like Xanax-induced calm, even as two stewardesses discuss Eric's bedroom prowess.

You want more? OK.

A 737 takes off on an impossible-for-it-to-make flight from London to Boston; while in-air it changes into a 757. But only aeronautics aficionados may notice that difference. The defective cargo door mysteriously moves from one location to another before exploding off the jet. A shackled convicted murderer volunteers along with another passenger to try and plug the gaping hole with luggage. After justifying a homicide he committed, the atmospheric imbalance rips the guy out of the plane, sans parachute. You'd laugh if it wasn't so ridiculous.

I can think of a dozen airline disaster pictures better than this one, and so can you.

ROUGH AIR is available on DVD.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.
