The acting and script felt like a bad movie made for TV circa 1975. Don't waste your time or money.
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.
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).Read more ›
Yes, it's ever bit as bad as one could imagine. Every aeronautic cliché is employed on cue, starting with a crash and things you don't want to hear someone call out during a flight: "The wing's on fire!" Or. "We're going to `attempt' a landing!" (Isn't that an either or type of situation? Either you land or.....) At least no one yelled out, cheap piece of crap!
The actors are a who's who of has-beens and never were, starting with former Days Of Our Lives star, Patrick Muldoon, who introduces Sam (Nicole Eggert) as "selling herself short." Not the type of thing you want to say about someone who is....short. The co-pilot is Jason Cook, another alumnus of Days Of Our Lives. And then there's Casper Van Dien and how low can you sink, Brad Dourif.
I liked how the whole premise for this `box that flies planes' is because they managed to make crashing sound like an hourly event. Casper is the genius behind this invention. I know, I laughed too. Most of his scenes involve him leaning in with his nose in everyone's business. No one leans quite like Casper.
Once they installed the big doodad and started flying the blue light special, all hell breaks out because Charles call me Chuck (Muldoon) uploaded some gobbledygook or a recipe for his granny. The doodad couldn't handle the unsolicited input and started thinking it was actually the captain. Naturally, all bad things mount and before you know it, PANDEMONIUM! "Captain Langford, do you copy?"
"Just that one time but I was never caught!"
I loved how they worked severe flooding into the plot, as if that would be an issue!
Thank God there just happened to be a General handy to order the plane shot down!Read more ›

If you like "airplane" subjects for movies, this movie is just OK. It seems low budget.Published 7 months ago by Bonnie Hahle
Was ok but I've seen better air disaster films. Too much hype made about plane to plane transfer for it to be so simple and disappointing. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Snowbird
