Plane ★★

This one got off to a rocky start because I lost my license and was refused a Bud Light at the theater, which I think would have made this HGH-B-movie go down a little better. Gerard Butler plays Captain Brodie Torrance (some other Butler character names include Mike Banning, Big Nick O'Brien, Dane Jensen, and Bob Viddick), an ex-RAF pilot, down on his luck and working New Year's Eve on a cheapo airline because he choke slammed a drunk air rager. His plane goes down east of Manilla in a ... land of wolves? On paper, combining Flight with The Raid should be right in my wheelhouse, but to borrow a line from Hurlyburly, "THEY'RE TOTALLY FUCKING DIFFERENT!" Doesn't help that this looks like it was shot on an iPhone.
