Trivia

The airplane registration prefix reads HB not N. HB is the call letters for Switzerland and N is the call letter for the USA. See more »

Goofs

To be able to go outside of the aircraft and remove the engine, they would have to descend from cruising altitude down to at least 10,000 ft. Climbing back to cruising altitude would likely burn off way more fuel than they would have "saved" by removing the drag and weight of one engine. (So would staying at the low altitude). See more »

"2012" meets "Speed"
18 August 2017 | by mail-557-362136See all my reviews

You can't slow down and land because the ground is...gone!! The feeling of this film reminded me a lot of 1994's „Speed" starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, and also „Open Water" from 2003. On the other hand, the disaster element added a flavor of films like „Independence Day" or „2012". Great (Hans-Zimmer-like) soundtrack, too.
