New level of wasting time

Airplanes vs. Volcanoes is a movie about ,well as you would expect by the title, an airplane vs. volcano. This movie stars Dean Cain in the leading role alongside Robin Givens as they are trapped on a plane in among volcanoes trying to escape.

As you would expect this movie isnt very interesting in the slightest,actually the whole idea of this movie is nonsense.Normally as a reviewer i try to give movies a chance a small benefit of the doubt. For the most part some movies do have redeeming qualities,but there is movies such as this that really stretch it.

I find it sometimes hard to phrase how i feel about things and this one such case i dont. Firstly, let me start off by saying that this movie attempts to flesh out its characters, this aspect isnt focused on for very long as the dialogue between the characters either sounds clunky or forced preventing any type of development. Some characters present on the plane throughout the movie feel as if they are ghosts not reacting or saying anything. I would have expected, since the cast on the plane itself is very small, everyone to play a role in the plot someway but as you would expect are props to kill off or something along those lines. Most of the main cast of characters,including the likes of the protagonist and the air marshall, lack any sort of depth and to me felt one dimensional. As for interactions there lacks any kind of substance to hold interest for very long.

I found myself at many points during the movie laughing, just purely at how things kind of just happen. I feel as if, eventhough it is fictional, the amount of absolute nonsense characters say in this movie doesnt reflect the tone very well. The tone of this movie is very unclear as i felt that it was intentionally over the top and goofy, for the lack of a better word, but i think it was meant to be serious for the most part.

As of right now, and probably for the fact that i wont waste an hour and a half again, i dont recommend this movie to anyone. At the least get some friends together to experience this as you might get some laughter out of it.

So bad it's incredibly entertaining

Talk about a film that doesn't talk itself too seriously. You'll literally cry tears of catharsis as all your stress and whatever has been getting you down is forgotten and your sins are forgiven.

So many good parts... when they have to fix the engine, the first rescue attempt, the entire situation on the ground.

Believe it or not you can actually watch this film more than once. I've watched it a few times and each time I notice clearly intentional gaffes for the viewers entertainment. Enjoy!

An Achievement of Stupid Nonsense

Where do I even begin? This disaster film was released direct-to-video by notoriously cheesy independent film company The Asylum on March 28, 2014. The 90-minute long film follows a commercial airliner as it flies into a ring of erupting volcanoes, becoming stuck on autopilot in the process, forcing a passenger, portrayed by Dean Cain, to step in, and fly the plane without landing it. Besides Cain, one other washed-up actor Robin Givens, known for her 90's sitcom Head of the Class co-tars as a volcanologist trying to help from the ground while simultaneously helping a military base with an evacuation. Despite Cain, and Givens receiving top billing, they barely receive enough screen time to really be considered leads. The actual lead roles are portrayed by Matt Mercer as a nerdy passenger, and Givens' colleague who attempts to reach contact with the ground, and Tamara Goodwin as the plane's stewardess who, despite being whiny, and annoying, knows her way with the men in the film. Seriously, she hugs at least 3 people throughout the course of the film. Co-starring are Morgan West as a military specialist whom helps Givens in the rescue of the plane, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs as an air marshal, and David Vega, who portrays one of the worst villains in film history. He portrays a psychopathic man with a fear of flying who threatens the passengers of the plane with tiny little broken bar bottles, which everybody is scared of for some reason. Before I continue, I need to address the film's implausible, and ridiculous premise. Alright, so instead of flying out of the ring of only six volcanoes, Cain chooses to just keep flying in the ring for what could possibly 6 hours, not to mention the improbability that they didn't die from heat exhaustion. Not only that, but the military planes manage to fly in, and out of the field within 5 minutes. Speaking of ridiculous plots, Mike Jerome Putnam portrays a Colonel on the ground who, for some reason, refuses to help the plane. The military's job is to serve, and protect the people of Earth. And yet, he seems to be more interested in his own life than the lives of 40-something people in a plane. Also, one in scene in the middle of the film where volcanic rocks fly down like meteors on the military base adds absolutely nothing, and should've been cut from the film entirely, not to mention all of the unnecessary slow-motion exhibited in the scene. Speaking of ridiculous scenes, the ending is just as bad, and seems more like a reenactment scene in the documentary television series Air Crash Investigation than a serious action sequence. With awful effects, dumb characters, and an implausible storyline, this film is overall worse than most of The Asylum's films, and that's saying something for this company. The film can only be enjoyed ironically, and is best experienced by making MST3K-type jokes about it. Airplane vs. Volcano is a cinematic abomination, and is perhaps one of The Asylum's worst films ever. I really have nothing good to say about the film, so I'm giving it a one out of ten. I thought is was complete garbage.
