Plane

Mid-flight over the South Pacific, Captain Brodie Torrance (Gerard Butler) is forced to land his plane on a small war torn island inhabited by criminals. By first light it’s only a matter of time before the residents will see the hostage value in the fourteen passengers and flight crew on board. Now searching for a way to get his passengers off the island safely, the only real help and muscle comes from Louis Gaspare (Mike Colter), a suspected murderer being extradited on the same flight. Against all odds there may be just enough fight left in this flight to see another day. Written by Charles Cumming and J.P. Davis and Directed by Jean-Fran├žois Richet this action driven January Popcorn chomper leaves little in the way of freshness, but, both Butler and Colter have the charisma to carry this old school “B” quality flick to the finish line. With wince inducing close calls and even larger firepower, this guilty pleasure delivers as advertised in a respectably brief one hour and forty seven minutes. Plane is rated R.
