Why watch this film?

We can almost say that Gerard Butler is a genre of its own: the type of actor classified in the same type of action movies with plots that border on the absurd, but are very successful. 'Plane' is a good example of this: the plot sees Butler as a pilot who saves his passengers from a forced landing, but that's just the beginning of an odyssey involving rebels, kidnappings and a mysterious ally (Mike Colter). A critical situation, frantic action and not much logic. In other words, more of the same. If you like traditional action movies or Butler films like 'Invasion to the Secret Service' or 'Final Destruction', you will like it. If you are looking for something more meaningful, it's better to move on.
