Movie Info

A glitch in the system of a revolutionary airline autopilot sends the passengers on a crowded airliner flying directly into a major storm in this white knuckle thriller starring Casper Van Dien, Nicole Eggert, and Patrick Muldoon. In the wake of a major airline catastrophe, Tom (Van Dien) and Samantha Woodward (Eggert) create the CD70, a powerful new form of autopilot that will make humans in the cockpit obsolete. Should it work, Devain Industries will be on the cutting edge of a new era in aviation. Eager to get the new system up and running, billionaire Richard Devain (Brad Dourif) and his impetuous son Charles (Muldoon) send a 747 into the clouds with a full load of VIP passengers, and a prototype version of the CD70. But somewhere during the flight from Los Angeles to New York City, a complex computer virus infects the system, sending the aircraft directly into the heart of a major electrical storm. As communications with the ground suddenly cease and the Pentagon begins drawing up plans to shoot the plane down, Tom comes up with a heroic plan to rescue the desperate passengers from their nightmare at 30,000 feet. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Turbulent Skies

Still trying to finish watching this. The acting, script, story are horrible. The acting.. or lack thereof is plain funny. The entire plot is so silly. Really.

This was 82 minutes of trivial trash...Turbulent Skies crashed and burned horribly. The acting was poor, the plot ridiculous and the scenes some of the in the sky flying reminiscent of the movie with Kurt Russell and Steven Segal. I swear the SR-71 connecting with the 747 was straight off of that movie. This was a serious "B" if not "C" movie complete with killer auto-pilot. Avoid this one like the plague...

This movie was horrible to watch. It is even more if you know anything about aviation with all the inaccuracies. Just to name a few pushing the control column forward makes a aircraft move down not turn, also showing the aircraft turning left off course but showing the actual aircraft rolling to the right is also completely wrong. How one of the designers Samantha doesn't know how to fly or read the elevation yet knows the aircraft is heading into turbulence makes real sense. Would anyone believe a 747 weighs 8,000 lbs? I could go on and on but in the end this film is not worth watching unless you want to laugh at the inaccuracies and madness.
