In this white-knuckle action movie, pilot Brodie Torrance (Gerard Butler) saves his passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island — only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning. Brodie has no choice but to enlist the services of Gaspare (Mike Colter), a felon being extradited for murder by the FBI, the only other person with the skills to fight the rebels and save the other passengers, who are taken hostage by the thugs and held for ransom. With his handcuffs removed, Gaspare proves to be a whiz with knives, machine guns, and sledgehammers. From here, the film lurches and careens from one violent non-stop action sequence to the next, with enough killings, ambushes, fistfights, fires and explosions to keep every action-thriller fan satisfied.
Plane is so well made and vastly entertaining you won’t even think about glancing at your watch.
