Casper Van Dien,
A new airplane that's equipped with a new computer that can fly the plane on its own is about to have its first flight. When the son of the owner decides to upload more software, he doesn't bother to check if there are any viruses with it. And he also invites some potential investors to try it. So the plane appears to be working well but suddenly it veers off course and it can't be shut down. When the military learns of this, they fear of something happening over a populated area and decide to shoot it down along with everyone on board. The man who built the computer whose wife is among the passengers thinks if he can get on board so that he might be able to shut it down and regain control of the plane. So the military using a new plane gets him on board. But what he didn't know is that both pilots are incapacitated so there's no one who can fly the plane.Written by

This film reunites Casper Van Dien and Patrick Muldoon from "Starship Troopers". One as an intelligent computer programmer and the other as a slick, handsome playboy. In fact, it is one of two films that reunites them this year, so there has to be a connection there... but that is a discussion for another time. Also here is horror veteran Brad Dourif and "Baywatch" babe Nicole Eggert.
This comes from Fred Olen Ray, the director of "Alienator" and many other B-movies in the sci-fi genre. So if you are expecting a great film in the normal sense of "great", you chose the wrong film. But if you like basking in cheesy glory, this is a film for you. A crazy computer that wants to kill all its passengers? Oh man, grab a beer and have fun!
And really, it is not a bad film. I saw a review that said "worst film in a long time". Please. That is so not true. This film is a cut above anything the SyFy Channel has shown ever, so I can name a dozen films this year that are worse than "Turbulent Skies". This is not to say it is great, either. But just know what to expect when you sit down on the couch and you may come out happier.
