97 Minutes(2023)review:Disappointing plane movie

I had high hopes when I first sat down to watch this action-packed disaster movie, but my expectations quickly plummeted. It’s painfully obvious that this film was made on a shoestring budget; everything from the opening credits to the sound and photography are well below average. The story itself is a tired rehash of every other plane movie, with no creativity or originality to speak of. The script, characters, and execution are all subpar and make for a complete waste of time.

In my opinion, this movie is pretty mediocre, if not downright bad. It throws you right into the action without any build-up or exposition, and many of the events that occur don’t make any sense. The pacing is rushed, leaving the viewer feeling unsatisfied and confused. It’s especially disappointing to see Hollywood heavyweight Alec Baldwin get involved with such a low-quality production. Unless you’re a die-hard fan of hijacked plane thrillers, I wouldn’t recommend paying to see this movie.
