""Crash Landing" is yet another direct to video action flick from director Jim Wynorski(who also uses the alias Jay Andrews). Like most of his other films, this makes for good entertainment for the non-discriminating viewer. Also like most of his other films this one has a pretty solid second-string cast. "Crash Landing" boasts Antonio Sabato Jr. and Michael Pare as the top billed stars(though Pare really isn't given much to do).
The plot is pretty straightfoward. Sabato is given the job of escorting a billionaire's 22 year old daughter and her equally ditzy friends on a private plane to her birthday party. Before the flight departs, hijackers kill off the crew one by one and secretly take their places. Scarily enough no one notices until after the plane has already taken off.
The hijackers plan on holding the billionaire's daughter for ransom, but unfortunately for them they didn't know Antonio is on board. He's not willing to give up without a fight.
Although "Crash Landing" is full of plot holes, it's still entertaining. The plot moves along nicely and is filled with just enough twists and turns to keep your interest. If you can look past a few unconvincing visual effects of the plane(and I've seen much worse) you might find "Crash Landing" to be exactly what it was meant to be: an hour and a half of harmless entertainment."
