Plane Review :

Are white-knuckle action movies making a comeback? Is 2023 going to be the year of the high-octane action entertainer? Spending time on the Plane with the always-watchable Gerard Butler seems to indicate a resounding yes, or rather, that is an affirmative to the above questions.

Director: Jean-François Richet
Cast: Gerard Butler, Mike Colter, Yoson An, Daniella Pineda, Tony Goldwyn
Runtime: 107 minutes
Storyline: An emergency landing on an island turns out to be a “from the frying pan into the fire” situation for crew and passengers

Plane starts like all those disaster movies from the 70s and 80s… It is New Year’s Eve and Captain Brodie Torrance (Butler) is rushing to make his flight. Even as he is clearing security, he is promising his daughter, Daniela (Haleigh Hekking), he will make it in time to Hawaii to usher in the New Year with her.

As Torrance is doing the pre-flight checks and chatting with his crew including co-pilot Dele (Yoson An) and chief flight attendant Bonnie (Daniella Pineda), he is asked to meet an officer (Otis Winston), who is escorting a man, Louis Gaspare (Mike Colter), being extradited for murder. Uh, oh.

Then we hear of extremely bad weather on the plane’s route. Torrance’s request for an alternate flight path to avoid the storm is denied on the grounds of extra cost for the extra miles. The passengers on board are quickly introduced in broad brush strokes. There is the annoying businessman, the one with a huge following on social media, and pretty girls in shorts with cascading curls.


Plane is as direct as its title. The new Gerard Butler movie, which the actor has also co-produced, promises a nightmare in the air that continues on the ground – nothing more, nothing less. On this count, the film amply delivers.

Commercial pilot Brodie (Butler) is navigating an aircraft out of Singapore. Since it is New Year’s Day, the plane has very few passengers but also one flier (Mike Colter) who will prove important to subsequent events. An emergency landing brought on by bad weather on a remote island in the Philippines is only the beginning.

Jean-Francois Richet’s fleet action thriller is adapted from Charles Cumming’s novel The Plane. Cumming has co-written the screenplay by JP Davis.

There’s just about enough background information to form emotional connections with Brodie and his co-pilot Dele (Yoson An). The focus is on the here and now – the nitty-gritty of cockpit behaviour, the panic that sets in as turbulence hits, the behaviour of the passengers, the reaction of the airline.
