He is encouraged, off the record, by CIA operative, Davidson (Jason Priestley) to track the hijackers down. With the help of an ex-terrorism analyst, Charlotte Rampling, he finds and kills three of them. Forrest Whitaker arrives as an FBI agent assigned to recover the money. He and Priestley are almost straight men for what is definitely a star vehicle for Jeremy Irons.
If you like Jeremy Irons you will like this movie. The script and plot are weak, but his performance is, as usual, unique and nearly flawless. Unlike Liam Neeson in "Taken", Irons' character is not a skilled operative. His portrayal as an unskilled, but determined, avenger is well-played. It is what makes this movie interesting He is the type of bravura performer who can convey feeling and emotion with a look, a glance, a short phrase. That is very fortunate for the viewer since the script is pretty weak.
The backstory throughout the movie is whether the hijacking was motivated by politics or money. That answer to that question provides the twist necessary to make the film acceptable. But make no mistake. Without Jeremy Irons' performance the viewer probably would not care.
When an airplane is taken by a group of terrorists, the correspondent stage of control rescue operation will be out of control, and the mess will be reigning and so, the abominable, repudiated and nasty event will concluded with the blood spill of fifteen innocent victims. Among them, three were linked with a magazine editor - his wife and two daughters -. This awful nightmare will become an inexhaustible search of justified punishment around the surviving kidnappers; but when the fine threads of the power have turned in, these kidnappers are set free, due legal artifices.
As you may guess, this abominable state of things are far to remain undamaged, and the long arm of the revenge will begin to grow, reaching levels of cosmic justice.
Vibrant performances of Jeremy Irons and Forrest Whitaker (what a knockout acting!). There is no any possible reason for you to miss this intriguing thriller, one of the most remarkable in years.
A cult movie from its instantaneous release!
