I must say that I had to laugh at the promo before the movie started of the theater saying how we have pretty much lost our sense of wonder because we're so glued to our mobile screens.
That life begins at the cinema was the message. LOL. So basically, it was like: "Stop looking at your screen, and look at ours. Then afterward, go back to looking and posting on your screens, so we can get more ppl to come look at ours."
Hence why I'm writing this review.
That's really the cycle, isn't it?
Okay, moving on. I just wanted to mention that because it was funny to me.
I wasn't that enthused to see this movie at first. I felt like it was just going to be another run of the mill action flick, something that could have gone straight to streaming. But I am please to announce that it wasn't.
Okay, first off, if you have a fear of flying, like I somewhat do, but really did before I got my ass on a plane. (some of you have known me long enough to remember those days. LOL) This movie will strike a chord in you when the plane has issues. But there is just something so sexy and badass about a pilot who knows his shit. To me, that added another layer to this film.
Then I love that there wasn't a lot of stupid characters doing cliched shit. You have your personality types that you get in those kinds of movies, however, they didn't quite playout like you'd expect and I found that refreshing. Things happened that you hope happen and that made for a pleasant movie experience. It had some predictability, the villians were threatening enough to warrent the action and plot. But nothing too in depth.
I was excited to see just how it was all going to turn out and the run time was spot on. Nice special effects. Some cool action scenes for sure. Not a lot of humor, but the situation didn't call for it, and I was glad that it wasn't forced in there.
FINAL VERDICT: INNOCENT LIKE A CAT CLAWING YOUR CARPET. LOL. Gerard got to keep his accent for this role. A treat for those who love Scottish men with deep voices. Bailiff, you can release this movie, it's got a plane to catch.
