Briefly put, this "film" is a disaster, but not of the airline variety. Acting is amateurish and over-the-top by one and all, special effects are pathetic throughout, and the movie's continuity supervisor was asleep at the switch (to put it mildly). Witness: 25 minutes into the film, one of three Air Force interceptor planes is destroyed in mid-air, leaving only TWO in hot pursuit. One minute later, (@ 26:00) there are THREE planes chasing the hijacked aircraft once again! A few minutes more into the film . . . only TWO remain. Truly pathetic, as is this entire effort. Meredith, I have always loved your work. PLEASE choose your projects more carefully in the future, OK?

The plot is about as unoriginal as they come. It resembles one of the Die-Hard movies. However, the Diehard movies actually had decent acting, scripting, and directing. This movie goes down in the biggest fireball since the Hindenburg. It's actually worse than any made-for TV movie that I've seen. I would go so far to speculate that this movie was an experiment to see how cheaply and badly a movie could be made, but still make a profit from an unsuspecting audience.
If this movie had been scripted as a comedy like "Airplane!", it might have been entertaining. Some of the shots of the cabin pandemonium right before the crash look as if they were plucked directly from "Airplane!". They cut to the exact same shot perhaps a half dozen times, with the same idiotic fake screaming.
The CGI looks like it was done by high school kids - no exaggeration. The physics are incredibly bad. The airplane hits several structures without so much as a scratch on itself. Then, it hits the Washington monument and obliterates it - again, without so much as a scratch. Any upright walking descendant of an ape realizes that exactly the opposite would happen.
I'd guess that each scene was shot only once no matter how bad it was. The only decent acting among the main characters was from Lindsey McKeon in the scenes where she didn't talk. Those scenes saved her from the horrible writing/scripting.
The only way to see another film this bad is to go see Titanic II - which has the same writer.

I cannot understand how the folks who made this thing could have attached their names to it. The acting is bad, the story is ridiculous, the special effects primitive, the sets primitive. it is, bar none, one of the wost films I have wasted time on in years. (I fast forwarded through most of it just to see if any part was worthwhile.) No luck.

The movie as a whole wasn't bad. It was suppose to be a suspenseful disaster flick and it was. And While the minor characters were guilty of overacting, Meredith Baxter was refreshingly believable as the President.I had no idea she was that talented .Scott Valentine was quite good too, as was his co-pilot once the early dialogue was over. The special effects were truly lousy though. The worst being the last scene, but none were believable in this fx age. The high point, however, being Meredith Baxter as President. I wish it had been a "headier" movie for that character.

Is this film worth your time?
No, not really.
Is this film worth buying?
If you can get it cheap. VERY cheap.
How is the acting?
Not very good at all. It is barely passable.
How is the character development?
There is virtually none. I didn't care whether or not the characters died or lived with the exception of the Air Force Pilots.
How are the special effects?
They are not good either.
How does this film stack up against other Ayslum films?
Well it is your typical Asylum film. I would say it is better than some but worse than some others.

Overall, if you can get it for 3 bucks or less I would say take a chance and see it. Just watch it with an open mind. I'm not going to give it one star because I knew what I was buying. Just be warned, this is not a great film by any means. If you want a good hijacker movie go see Delta Force with Chuck Norris.

I enjoyed this movie. In fact I bought it. It does exactly what it sets out to do, which is build suspense and entertain. The acting and script are good, but not fantastic. It has two actors from Family Ties, Meredith Baxter and Scott Valentine (Elise Keaton and Nick, her daughter Mallory's boyfriend) who are brother and sister in the film. This alone would make it worth watching, but in accordance with present day revelations, Meredith Baxter is our female lesbian president with a first lady and children--if only America were that open-minded, right? Gotta love it...just watch and enjoy this, it ain't supposed to be Citizen Kane.

This movie was a complete waste of my time! The acting was poor and the CGI was terrible. There are repeated scenes when both the pilot and co-pilot are struggling with the aircraft's control yoke as if that airplane had steel control cables going both to the wings and the empennage. As a former pilot I shook my head in disbelief. Modern planes of that size have computer controls just like the space shuttles. In conclusion: a terrible movie!
