Air Collision Reviews
This is making my head hurt! Now, let's get to the fun stuff. Like, when that DC-9 is falling from the sky because its engines flame out. First of all, planes don't just go screaming down when the engines go out. Planes can fly, and yeah, your descent rate would be higher than usual, but not that much! Then, the falling plane flies by the Library Tower in Downtown Los Angeles. Then, in the next shot, it's flying through Manhattan. Wow, that WAS fast!
When the missile hits the DC-9 (and somehow, DOESN'T explode!) the decompression seems to take 10 minutes. So, how much air did you have in that airplane?
People trying to use their walkies backwards? A story about 2 planes colliding instead of the thousands of pieces of debris falling from the sky killing people like there's no tomorrow? A plane that doesn't try to land when all of its instruments go dead, it gets a hull breach, and has people dying on board? A traffic jam... on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere that apparently goes to a major bridge? California desert that is supposed to be Connecticut? This is but a few of the hundreds of things that made absolutely no sense in this movie. I'll give the odd budget decision here, I'll allow a continuity error or two, I'll give you a little leeway to time constraints, I'll even give you poor story decisions, but there is no way anyone can tell me they were making a serious movie when they made Air Collision.
It wasn't until I clued in that this was obviously supposed to be a comedy that I started to get some enjoyment from it.
Man this is a disaster from start to finish... literally!
This is a nice movie.
