"Passenger 57" has to be my very favorite Wesley Snipes movie and one of my very favorite action movies ever! I have been a huge fan of this movie ever since I first saw the trailer for it when I went to see Under Siege (another awesome movie.) At the height of this movie's popularity producers capitalized on Wesley's image as a strong leading man with the catchphrase: always bet on black. And that totally describes his role and this movie.

Wesley plays John Cutter, a security expert who quit his job as a cop after his girlfriend was shot. And, Bruce Payne portrays Charles Rane the master-terrorist. Although, I thought Charles Rane was more funny than scary. Whose big idea was it to make the British dude with long blonde hair the villain who tries to go up against Wesley Snipes?

The film also includes some very impressive supporting roles. I especially enjoyed Alex Datcher (doesn't she look just like Halle Berry?) as Marti the tough-talking stewardess. And Elizabeth Hurley was in a somewhat smaller role as Sabrina Ritchie. I loved the part in the beginning when Sabrina says to Marti that she doesn't like her name because "it makes me sound cold and heartless."

IMHO the early to mid-90's were the Golden Age of Suspense/Mystery-Action/Thrillers. There were so many great movies in this genre, during this time. Besides "Passenger 57," I highly recommend these pictures: Single White Female,

Most of this explosive joyride is highly implausible even while you are sitting through it (one wonders if the art of Hijacking has come a long way) but it's an enjoyable diversion.

As an action hero Snipes belongs to the school that plays it cool and cracks jokes and kung-fu kicks when the going gets rough, all with a nonchalant glint in the eye, as if he were fully aware that the film is really a live-action cartoon.

Payne as his villainous and unabashedly racist counterpart brings a similar comic-book audacity to the psychopathic fiend.

I was particularly surprised to see a very young version of a face I was certain I recognized, but couldn't put a name to. Elizabeth Hurley! Male chromosomes take note.

To its credit, the film doesn't dilly-dally in going about its pulpy routine, with some very decent action scenes for its time. You know what's going to happen, but it's interesting to see how.

This film has nothing new to offer but is quite appealing. I can't decide whether Bruce Payne is hammy or believable as the villain. He plays Charles Rayne (or the Rayne of terror) a notorious airplane hijacker who is being transported to LA from Miami for trial. But as soon as his plane is in the air his band of nameless crooks (including a crazily miscast Liz Hurley) set him free. But not to worry because John Cutter (Wesley Snipes) is on board. And he just happens to be head of security for the airline. It's his job to round up the crooks and save the passengers from the evil intentions of Rayne. And he's only got 80 minutes to do it in.
I'm not kidding. This movie is 84 minutes long. The credits roll at the 80-minute mark. Minus 2 minutes for the opening sequence and another 20 (of tedious character building) for the action to begin. You're left with a 60-minute slice of entertainment. It makes you wonder why they bothered. If Warner wanted to make a great hijack movie why did they bother with the Passenger 57 script? It's too short and too clichéd. A couple of brief moments of action make it barely worthwhile, but watch on it TV. Don't rent it or buy the DVD.

If you thought the terrorists on Air Force One (starring Harrison Ford) were nasty, check out Mr. Charles Rane as he boards an aircraft intent on murder and mayhem as much as "necessary". This movie vividly portrays action hero Wesley Snipes as the good guy, but it won't be so easy for Wesley (playing as John Cutter) to be the good guy this time. Charles Rane a.k.a. "The Rane of Terror" will freeze your heart, and everyone else's on board too. There's not a moment in this movie when your eyes are not glued to the screen, and, unlike other terror filled dramas, you can root for the good guys all you want, but the outcome on this one is not predictable. Mr. Rane cares for no one, and so cares not whom he murders, maims, or tortures. I've yet to see a hardened criminal played so excellently on any movie. Mr. Rane (Bruce Payne) has already been the brilliant mastermind behind four other terrorist attacks, and this one promises to have you holding your breath.

This movie moves so fast that I didn't realize it was over even as the credits were rolling. It left me a little out of breath.
While our hero has special talents, posturing him as a regular guy is a fairly effective technique. hope you enjoy it. I did.
