Made in mainland china, so you can rule out an actual villain . . .
Supercheap real-life disaster story falls prey to superdumb sub-AIRPORT-style melodramatics and characterizations, trotting out the usual passenger list — the heroic co-pilot (Ray Lui), his stewardess girlfriend, the businessman and his conniving mistress, the snotty movie star, her panty-sniffing stalker, the folk singer, the benevolent doctor, the Buddhist monk and many more — then killing them all in a fiery stock-footage crash allegedly caused by a hat trick involving lightning, an open bottle of nitric acid and a bunch of exploding cigarette lighters! Shameless exploitation from the Mainland, badly directed and overacted, elicits tons of unintentional laughs.
