Just when you thought it was safe to take to the skies: another awful aircraft movie is churned out. In the tradition of all bad disaster movies (in both senses of the word) this film has no redeeming elements, and provides an excellent case study on what to avoid when attempting character development, suspense or special effects. The foremost failing of the flying flop is its assumption that the viewer cares about the central characters. The only reason we may feel sorrow for these people is for their lack of acting talent. In scenes in which the female lead is 'crying' no tears appear in her eyes, let alone the viewer's. The rest of her time is spent cold-heartedly bossing around air traffic controllers while various planes almost collide with each other. Meanwhile, her 'husband' (you can almost feel the lack of chemistry between the two) mirrors his wife by barking orders at an inept pilot and co-pilot--who seemingly know nothing about emergency procedures--and spends the rest of his time nervously flailing his limbs and running his fingers through his hair as though on a prolonged caffeine high. After the plane defies physics by sliding around the airport on landing (obviously achieved by an undercranked camera, as vehicles in the background of the shot show), a suitably awful line is delivered to end the film. A survivor (of course, you also qualify as a survivor if you've sat through the length of the film) suggests, on how to return home: "How about we take a really slow boat". A more suspenseful two hours could be spent watching paint dry.
