Plane (2023)

Jean-François Richet directs Gerard Butler, Mike Colter and Tony Goldwyn in this action movie where a pilot and a prisoner must rescue the passengers of a crashed commercial flight.

Surprisingly good. The action is handled with a rare sustained straight face – closer to a really good pair of episodes of 24 or Arnie’s swing at drama in Collateral Damage. Certainly Plane is never cute and that helps the intensity. Pretty much every movie Jean-François Richet has made has scratched a genre itch for me… and that makes me want to revisit his Assault On Precinct 13 remake with evolved expectations.
