Kindof…well, plain, isn’t it? Surely, that title isn’t going to lure anybody in who doesn’t already realize what kind of movie this is. Because if they did know that it’s another in a long line of ridiculous over-the-top Gerard Butler action flicks, they’d already be lining up at the theater with their ticket. Because good or bad, Butler rarely fails to entertain.
In this one, he plays airplane pilot absurdly-named Brodie Torrance (???) who must team with an accused murderer, played by Luke Cage star Mike Colter, when the plane crashes and they must fight off an army of invading rebels.
Yes, it’s ludicrous, but isn’t that what we all want?
The film is directed by Jean-François Richet (Mesrine), and also stars Daniella Pineda, Tony Goldwyn, and Yoson An.
Plane opens in theaters on January 13th.
In the white-knuckle action movie PLANE, pilot Brodie Torrance (Gerard Butler) saves his passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island – only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning. When most of the passengers are taken hostage by dangerous rebels, the only person Torrance can count on for help is Louis Gaspare (Mike Colter), an accused murderer who was being transported by the FBI. In order to rescue the passengers, Torrance will need Gaspare’s help, and will learn there’s more to Gaspare than meets the eye.
