Turns out Dean Cain is a passenger on the plane while the volcano is just a massive pile of CG smoke destroying Hawaii. Also, four minutes into the film a lady on the plane looks at another passenger and says “Hank, right?” like she recognized him, only for the other shoe to drop and reveal these characters have never met and she just decides he should be named Hank. Is that a thing that happens in real life? Or just in the volcanoverse? In any event, I like her moxie.
Ten minutes into the movie and HOLY SHIT WE’RE FLYING A COMMERCIAL JET THROUGH A GODDAMN FIRESTORM!! IT’S HELL ON EARTH PLEASE FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS! This is more intense action than you’ll find at a back alley fight over a stray dollar bill. It’s like if boners and Christmas joined forces in a flaming apocalypse and tossed in Dean Cain for balance. Surely they’ll fly over the volcano in a matter of minutes, right? Wrong, aerospace bitches! The flight is locked in an autopilot loop because reasons and we’re never leaving this ring of fire!
