Customer Reviews

Great movie, lots of action and good performances.
Kay A. Dority
As well, the Islamic terrorists have a sophisticated and deadly nerve gas ("DZ-5") bomb on the plane that will explode if there's an attempt at landing.
Stephen Pletko
In real life, Algeria is known to have state sponsored terrorists!

This tense action thriller is a well-directed and engaging film from the days before studios watered down action films to get a PG-13 rating, and is a good way to pass a couple of hours. However, it is sadly hampered by the fact that, in this post 9/11 world, the Blu-ray editions have been pre-cut by Warner Bros. to remove references to Islamic fundamentalism. Funnily enough, I don't remember anyone complaining about it in 1996 when it was first released... Anyway, if you examine the back of the Blu-ray case, you will see quite clearly the words, "This R-rated version contains material different from the original R-rated version". Uh-oh, alarm bells should be ringing. So what is missing?

To begin with, around 10½ minutes into the film, the appearance of the terrorist in the restaurant has been censored to remove the sight of him holding the Qur'an along with a necklace. These items have been digitally removed, so he now appears to not be holding anything, and standing with his hand formed into an awkwardly-shaped fist.

Around 65 minutes into the film, footage of Nagi (David Suchet) gesturing towards- and handling the Qur'an as he states, "it will all be over very soon" has been replaced with footage where he is simply holding the book as he speaks, thus removing the implication of religion and violence going hand in hand.

At 97 minutes, the sight of Nagi praying has been removed, along with -- bizarrely -- two innocent shots of the airplane pilots. A few seconds later, when the airplane telephone rings, we do not see Nagi rising from a prayer position before answering the call.

It may not amount to much, but true fans of cinema will always prefer to see an uncut version of any film. Warner Bros.

Okay, it's Die-Hard-on-an-airplane the way _Speed_ is Die-Hard-on-a-bus, _Under Siege_ is Die-Hard-on-a-battleship, and _The Rock_ is Die-Hard-at-Alcatraz. But it's a fine action flick and it beats the heck out of _Air Force One_.

I like Kurt Russell; to my mind he's never gotten the credit he deserves as an actor. And if (like me) you're not a big Steven Seagal fan, you'll be gratified to learn (about half an hour into the film) that he's _not_ the hero of the story.

This film probably couldn't have been made today. In the post-9/11 world, every moviemaker is carefully shying away from the 'Arab terrorist' stereotype; the screen adaptation of Tom Clancy's _The Sum of All Fears_ substituted neo-Nazis, and even the Gubernator took the safe route (using Columbian drug lords in _Collateral Damage_). But in fact, this script does a pretty good job of making clear that the head terrorist (David Suchet) is a loon who doesn't represent even the views of his collaborators, let alone those of the larger Arab/Muslim world.

Anyway, if you like a good action-suspense yarn, you'll like this one. Sure, parts of it are implausible, but less so than in lots of other good action films. And Russell makes an excellent hero.

Terrorists hijack a jumbo jet with over 400 passengers. Terrorist expert Dr David Grant (Kurt Russell) believes that the terrorists have nerve gas bombs on board and therefore, they can't let the plane enter US airspace, since the nerve gas could probably destroy the entire Washington DC. And they don't want to shoot them down, since that would lead to a big scandal. Instead, they send up a special military unit, led by Lieutenant Colonel Travis (Steven Seagal), to get on board the jumbo jet and take control over it. This turns out to be even more difficult than they had thought.
This is an action thriller that unfortunately doesn't seem as unrealistic now as it would've done some months ago, and some people would maybe prefer not to watch it because of the recent attacks. On the other hand, it could be interesting to watch because of that. Either way, it's a very good and well made movie. It's not so different from Air Force One and if you liked that one, you'll probably like this one and vice versa.
Steven Seagal's role is actually quite small, he's out of the movie after approximately half an hour, or even less, and you don't miss him. Kurt Russel, Oliver Platt, Halle berry and the other actors are good.
If you like quality action movies, here is one that will keep you at the edge of your seat for a little more than two hours. I really liked it!

My attention was fixed to the TV like never before the first time I saw this come on cable. We need more films that can generate suspense as well as this did. But did they really have to have Kurt Russell's character get his foot stuck in that..."thing on the wall" near the end of the film? I think the movie producers could have come up with a better (and more believable) way to hinder him for the situation he was in. There goes the 5th star.
But, holy cow, did any movie foretell 9/11 better than this one? Airline security employees should have been made to watch this; maybe at least some of them would have believed an event like 9/11 was more probable and taken their job more seriously, preventing the disaster.
