South Korean films and series continue to dominate the markets. And just like parasite won the Oscar and the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and the game of squid exploded in global streaming, the protagonist of the first (Song Kang-ho) and one of the actors of the second (Lee Byung-hun) are opposite emergency in the air.

To give him a little more support, Han Jae-rim’s film premiered last year at the Cannes Film Festival, obviously out of competition. It’s that it’s an action, suspense, and theme movie that the writer and director wouldn’t have imagined when they wrote the script that would be so relevant.

Because the need and urgency occur because there is a virus spreading aboard a plane with 121 passengers.

And guess what: no country wants to land flight 501 of the airline Sky Korea, which departed for its final destination in Hawaii. Neither the United States nor Japan. Nobody. And in Korea itself they think twice before making a decision. And of course there will be a company, a pharmaceutical multinational involved in all of this.

Without saying too much, that’s the way it is. A young man leaked on social media that he was planning an attack. It wasn’t exactly clear how he was going to do it, but Sergeant Koo (Song Kang-ho) goes on, only to find it wasn’t a false threat. Let’s say no more.

The film is having, like any film about the first air disasters Airportwith Burt Lancaster and Dean Martin, a flight 93passing if they want And, where is the pilot? his scenes on board the plane and what happens on the ground. Before take off, let’s see how Ryu Jin-seok, the bioterrorist, randomly chooses which flight to take. And it doesn’t work that the sergeant’s wife is on that plane!

Furthermore, a father and his little daughter also enter Economic, but they have a confrontation with Ryu.

ok READY

From there, everything you can imagine is small. The virus can spread and make those who take it feel itchy, cold, and start coughing up blood. And since the plane is old -bah: it’s 20 years old-, the ventilation reuses the air inside and since it’s a new virus, the incubation period is short, and then … Will there be an antidote? Hey?

emergency in the air it is not original in any respect. There is no lack of clashes between passengers, the heroism of some pilot or stewardess, everything that cannot be missing. Nor is much left: the decomposition of bodies goes hand in hand with the solidarity and altruism of those who are good and generous.

In short, popcorn made in Korea. And beware: the extended version is shown in the IMAX, which lasts 20 minutes longer.
