Plane

If you have New Year’s Eve Plans, I just canceled them.
26 May 2023

A plane crash lands on a remote island in the southern Philippines overrun by terrorists and criminals. The pilot (Gerard Butler) has to fight to try and keep the passengers and crew alive.

It’s faint praise to say that “this could have been much worse and ended up being OK” but for Gerard Butler movies these days praise can be hard to come by.

Perhaps it’s a paint-by-numbers plot but it largely succeeds delivering on its promise of b-movie thrills with some entertaining action sequences and some tense survival thriller elements.

It’s short, it’s lean and Gerard Butler plays a Scottish person - what more can you ask for?
