A pilot, Brodie Torrence (Gerard Butler), finds himself caught in a war zone after he’s forced to land his commercial aircraft during a terrible storm (IMDB).

Butler is the perfect choice for the role of Captain Brodie because we have seen him in this type of role many times before. He is great at portraying the everyday man who steps up to take charge. I can think of at least four other films in which he was in somewhat similar roles. Unfortunately, it is almost becoming cliché. Don’t get me wrong, he is great in these roles but I look forward to seeing him in different roles.

This film is well-made and the actors give convincing performances.  Another good thing is the short, sweet, and to the point plotline but it is extremely predictable.

If you are looking for a decent film to watch that isn’t too gory then this is the film for you. Although, I would definitely not recommend paying to see this in a theater. Wait for it to stream somewhere.
