Cabin temperatures plummet, passengers are losing consciousness, and all communication to control is lost. Heading into an enormous storm with the co-pilot sucked halfway out of the cockpit window, the plane's strong-willed Captain, Liu Chuan Jian, is determined to bring everyone home safely.

Critic Reviews for The Captain

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

  • Though riddled with wobbly dialogue and wafer-thin characters, this patriotic thriller is easy enough to enjoy if you don't look too closely.

    October 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A proper nail-biter even if you already know what happens in the real life story.

    October 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A corny but enjoyable disaster flick which makes up for what it lacks in polished CGI with a rattling pace and plenty of bracingly authentic scenes of screaming passenger panic.

    November 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Passengers on a flight to Tibet survive accidents and weather in a disaster pic that's become a blockbuster hit in China.

    October 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Essentially 'Sully' without the nuance, a throwback to the disaster-movie formulas of pre-'Airplane!' days.

    October 19, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • It should come as no surprise to disaster movie fans that the scenes of mid-air crisis in The Captain are far more captivating than those on the ground.
