Plane Movie Review

If you're looking for an action movie to pass the time, "Plane" might be just what you need.
Starring Gerard Butler and Mike Colter as Capt. Brodie Terrance and Louis Gaspare respectively, these two actors make a great team on screen. Their chemistry is palpable, especially during the film's action sequences. Speaking of which, the action scenes in "Plane" are cool and well-executed, with rebels beheading people and bad guys getting choked out. One fight scene between the Captain and a bad guy is particularly noteworthy because of its realistic choreography. It's just two sweaty dudes rolling around a room violently, but it feels intense and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

However, the real strength of "Plane" lies in its plane scenes. When that plane is up in the air, all your flight anxiety will kick in. The sound effects of the storm hitting the plane are terrifying, and the film does a great job of putting you in the passenger seat and making you feel the fear and panic of everyone on board. From the Captain's point of view, you watch as everything that could go wrong, goes wrong, and you feel like you're right there with him, fighting to gain control.

But despite its entertaining moments, "Plane" falls short in a few key areas. The storyline with the rebels doesn't last very long, and the bad guys are only in the movie for about 30 minutes. This is disappointing, as the trailer sets up the expectation that Gerard Butler and Mike Colter will spend a majority of the film fighting these dangerous foes. The story is also generic, and there's nothing particularly memorable about the side characters. Ultimately, the film leaves you feeling underwhelmed and indifferent.

In the end, "Plane" is a Meh movie. It's not good or bad, just kind of there. While there are certainly some entertaining moments to be had, there's nothing about the film that really stands out. It's forgettable, but it might be worth checking out if you're looking for a mindless action flick to pass the time. Just don't expect anything too groundbreaking or memorable
