  • Plane charts a standard action-adventure course with its cruising altitude just a few miles above Direct-to-Video -- but with Gerard Butler in the cockpit, thriller enthusiasts will still find this a fun flight.

    It would be easy to nitpick action-thriller Plane for its plot holes, old-school machismo and paint-roller-broad characterisation of Asian villains. But it’s also an adrenaline-pumping banger, skilfully executed by Jean-François Richet

    Gerard Butler is a treat – the runtime seems to fly by.

    This is just the kind of tosh you want it to be. Brisk, easy, brutish. It has explosions, punch-ups, shoot-outs and more than one bit where someone gets smacked in the face with a big hammer. How much more could you reasonably ask? It’s a blast.

    It's a thriller with no filler, taking less than two hours to finish, and containing enough tense sequences and shootouts to satisfy any fan of the genre. Add to that a very committed Butler, and we have the winning recipe. Full review in Spanish.
