You can switch off your brain for a couple of hours because there's no real plot to the film.

Entertainingly bad mess of stereotype and cliché.

So bad that its enjoyable .

Nobody in the production really puts in much effort, even seasoned pros like Rutger and Mategna are kind of dull here, given the boring material they have work with.

The protaganist is uncovered about half way through the movie, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats.

Boring, Confusing and Stupid .

Warning - contains some spoilersThis film is definitely worth watching once for a laugh.

Its not worth watching because its plan boring and stupid.

There is also very little plot.

Production values are ok, the film quality is _great_, but the dialogue is stilted and camera work mundane.

It's also one of those films tackling the new-fangled Internet phenomenon, one which thinks repetitive scenes of people sitting around on computers is exciting (clue: it isn't).

The photography is uninteresting.

While I didn't find the movie terrible, I did find it pretty dull.

The story is so predictable, you always know what's gonna happen next.

You have to see it to believe it: this movies is definitely one of the worst movies ever made.

The characters are all bland or cliché such as the narcissistic entertainment report.

Waste of time .

The story starts to be a bore within a few minutes.

What a complete waste of time.

Nothing happened.

CONS: Hokey Poor dialogue No plot to really speak of The actors start losing the spirit halfway through this unlikely mess, specially Gabrielle Anwar and Joe Mantegna.

The oh so suspenseful cliché of the pilot being killed and somebody with no previous flight experience having to land the plane assisted by radio from somebody in the ground.


a waste of time .

It's got all the clichés of airplane disaster movies mixed in with a cliché that kind of went down the tubes after the eighties- the 'evil rock & roll guy' cliché.

This has to be one of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen.

some late night, grab some friends and some popcorn and enjoy this entertaining story about a "death metal" (yeah right)performer's farewell concert a mile up the air...

A pointless sub-plot involves a Clarice Starling-style FBI agent tracking down a notorious computer hacker and other scenes involve Joe Mantegna.

because it is presented in such a bland fashion.

That's not mention the out of the blue sex scene lead in at the end of the movie, the awful music video, the contrived hacker subplot and the seriously wacky aim of the satanic terrorists to crash the plane into a church in the middle of nowhere because of its mystical significance.

a Marilyn Manson-esque rock star gives a concert on an airplane, which is high-jacked by his evil twin brother for suicide terrorist statement purposes, and the real rock star has to overcome the bad guys and land the cliche, er, I mean airplane, while renouncing his satanic ways and begging god for the strength to help him out of a tough situation.

This must be one of the worst movies ever made .

Locations are suspiciously absent of extras and very bland to look at, while the principle cast members spend the majority of the time in separate locations from which the fail to venture far from.

Although the basic story reworks a tried-and-true disaster movie formula, especially at the end, it has enough twists and turns to not only keep me interested, but a few times leave me hanging on the edge of my seat!
