1.0 out of 5 stars IT HURTS. MAKE IT STOP MOMMY! March 27 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
A plane's engine is on fire. The pilot opts to cut off the fuel in flight to stop the fire, however the engine doesn't restart and the plane crashes. The operator was blamed for "human error" even though the black box (never mentioned) would have exonerated the pilot. Brad Dourif plays the evil capitalist wanting to exploit the accident to promote his new CD-70 automatic pilot, based on predator drone technology. Casper Van Dien is not too sure about using the M-5 eh ah CD-70. Lets see...if I was to guess they use the CD-70, it messes up and Casper must save the day by killing giant alien bugs. And the reason why I am guessing is that it became too painful to watch the film all the way through. It was bad...real bad, as in destroy your copy, don't give it away bad.

The acting and script felt like a bad movie made for TV circa 1975. Don't waste your time or money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flying The Silly Skies--A Low Budget, And Unconvincing, Thriller That Needed To Embrace Its Silliness June 27 2011
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Have you been missing the delightfully cheesy disaster films of yore? I know I have. The preposterous "Turbulent Skies" is a kissing cousin to the camp classic "Airport 1975" without the star wattage, overwrought performances, or manic intensity. Combining the estimable talents of Casper van Dien, Nicole Eggert, and Patrick Muldoon--it's not like I expected this film to compete for Oscars. I'd just hoped for a bit more fun. Everyone plays it far too straight (where's a cross-eyed Karen Black when you need her?) and the resultant film is patently dull as opposed to genuine B-movie magic. The screenplay is riddled with holes and lapses of logic, the film just needed to embrace its inherent silliness and go with it. But by asking us to take it seriously and to care, the director has missed his chance to elevate this to campy greatness. As is, only the most stalwart fans of one of the leads might be interested in this rather tedious exercise. There are plenty of more effective low budget adventures in the DVD marketplace--try to catch this on cable sometime before plopping down hard earned dollars to own it!

The film centers around a new piece of technology that will revolutionize air travel. An auto-pilot device that will make humans obsolete has been developed by Eggert and team. On the test voyage, corporate greed takes over and Muldoon (the requisite bad guy) outfits a commercial airline with the device and invites investors to fly with the untested (and tampered with) unit controlling the plane. I loved how all this happened rather spontaneously--as if there wouldn't be a billion federal regulations to navigate. Soon a 747 is loaded with potential victims (By loaded, I mean 12 people. Seriously--3 corporate representatives, 4 crew members, 2 reporters, and 3 investors). All this is for THREE investors--even though no one seems to know how many people to expect. Muldoon has prepared extravagant gift bags, there are trays of champagne, and the flight attendant even attempts to shut the door before the reporters get on. No flight manifest? Can't count to twelve?

Of course, the unit malfunctions and takes the plane off course. Even though there are no signs of the plane actually crashing, the military decide to shoot it down before it gets to a city. Preventive medicine, I suppose. Van Dien plays Eggert's estranged husband who might be able to save the day (and their marriage) if only he can get onto the flight. Well, he does--just in time to clip some wires. Thank goodness he was there. Eggert still has to single handedly save the day (good thing she had that rescue training on Baywatch). Again, it's all just silly--had it aspired to dumb fun, it might have worked. But I really think they wanted you to care about the thinly drawn characters and personal drama and touching moments of heroism. A low budget thriller, in which the low budget really shows and the thrills are limited, "Turbulent Skies" is instantly forgettable--assuming you make it to the end. Now, I really am going to re-watch "Airport 1975" in all its campy glory! KGHarris, 6/11.

Good story but I felt that the plot could have been a little better. Good way to have family time together

A new "pilotless" commercial airplane veers off course and is about to be shot down by the military, along with everyone onboard. The only chance to save the passengers is if the man who built the computer can regain control. But first he has to get on the plane!
2.0 out of 5 stars Leaves one wanting.. Jan. 9 2014

From the very beginning I was able to tell this film was not going to maintain any type of believeability. At the beginning of the film one sees a Boeing 737, thereafter is the crash but it is using Boeing 727. The makers of this film simply did not do their homework.
