Some have noted that this movie uses tons of stock footage. Not surprising since if they had a budget of more than $10,000 it doesn't show up on the screen. The FAA will let movies shoot some background and limited principal shots in its air traffic facilities, but the producers here don't even bother. They just badly dress up a room with stuff that has no relation to reality. The action is supposed to take place on a 747, but they couldn't even spend the money to shoot the cockpit scenes in a real 747 or rent one of the mockups that have appeared in numerous other movies. The cockpit is an obvious thrown together cheap set done by someone who has absolutely no idea of what they're depicting. Poorly directed, indifferently acted (except by Ms Oja) and completely unresearched.
In order to not either laugh or throw something at the screen when you watch this, you have to have no knowledge of aviation, air traffic control, the military, piloting requirements, what anything in a cockpit is, the military, guns, how humans breathe (you can breathe without aid at 10,000 feet, there's no reasons to rapidly descend from there), security, etc. Come to think of it that describes the writers. For example, in the big climax, you're expected to believe that every air traffic controller knows exactly how to fly a 747 and can teach virtually anybody how to land it and that your average flight attendant knows where all the controls are and just how to work them.Read more ›
There is also the crazy part about the black-ops team using an SR71-blackbird to board a moving commercial plane at a altitude of above 10,000 feet by attaching to the SR71 perfectly above some magical hidden hatch leading to a random cargo hold separate from the plane's luggage department. I nearly lost it that after they were attach to the moving plane with some extended tunnel thing on the SR71 no bigger that 100sq ft that was able to line up perfectly with the magical hatch on the plane, the leader of the black-ops pressed some buttons on some random panel and said that two planes pressures were matched before they even opened the hatch of the moving plane. Minor detail but still off the wall.Read more ›

This is pretty much a copycat of PASSENGER 57, which is a better movie...
If it wasn't for ICE-T I wouldn't have cared to follow the movie through... Read more
Unknown actors and actresses (to me) ...but I thoroughly enjoyed the film. Some scenes were a little "far fetched" but that's what entertainment is all about ...huh??Published on June 16, 2004 by Thomas Giraldi
