IT'S OKAY, IT'S ON AUTOPILOT.,
This review is from: Airborne [DVD] (DVD)
A flight is headed from England to NYC with limited passengers and crew. Mark Hamill, the top billed star has a minor role as the tower chief. He is almost unrecognizable from his glory days of saving the galaxy.
The group of passengers are later described as a bunch of "red flags" i.e. bad guys who should not be on a plane. We also get to see a wooden crate in the cargo section jumping around as if something is in it. The passengers disappear one by one as others go look for them. The film starts out as a decent mystery thriller as we try to figure out who is killing people and why.
Once this aspect of the plot has been explained, the killer revealed, the reason for the killings, and what is in the box, the movie shifts into a fairly bad horror thriller mode, one that reminded me a bit of "Fallen" a far superior film.
The acting in the film was fine. The script could have used some work. I never "felt" it, perhaps the fault of director Dominic Burns who played the part of "Bob" in the film, one of the few likable characters, something the production lacked.
Could work as an inexpensive rental.
