The Plane That Never Lands: Emergency Declaration

Led by Director Han Jae-rim, the production of the most anticipated film, Emergency Declaration, took more than six months including pre-production. If you have watched the trailer, you would witnessed the dramatic sequences of the plane as it goes through the chaos as soon it takes off from Incheon Airport, South Korea.

Veteran chief detective In-ho (Song Kang-Ho) received a tip that a man, Jin-Seok (Yim Si-Wan) has plans to hijack the plane. Soon after, a passenger died for mysterious reasons and symptoms started developing on others, which leads to a high-level distrust among them.

Upon hearing this news, Transport Minister Sook-hee (Jeon Do-Yeon) sets up a counter-terrorism task force and calls an emergency meeting to find a way to land the airplane safely.

The plot gets more chaotic as the man who wanted to hijack the plane died out of a sudden. I enjoyed the use of the special effects and set design that were carefully executed. Director Han explained that the use of space and lighting was essential to distinguish between land and air. For example, the fully constructed aircraft set was flown from abroad with a function to rotate 360° with technical capabilities similar to high altitude plunge sequences when a plane flies with no power. It was literally a rollercoaster experience packed with fear and doubt by the passengers on board. It keeps you wanting for more as you feast on the action and suspense of the chaotic flight experience. The fear and uncertainty felt by the characters get you more in tune with the entire fiasco as they find the source of the “disease” onboard.
