Customer Review

on December 3, 2001
There are no splashy special effects at work in 1972's "Skyjacked" (a.k.a.: "Sky Terror"), just a lot of tension on board a Boeing 707 jetliner that has been "skyjacked" to Russia. James Brolin is quite convincing as the bad guy who diverts the plane to Moscow. And Charlton Heston is, as always, first-rate as the aircraft's Captain (similar to roles he would play in later years in "Airport 1975" and "A Thousand Heroes"). I ask you: Who wouldn't want Charlton Heston as their airline Captain?! A no-brainer!

The action is, at times, a bit on the slow side. But, overall, it delivers the goods. Best scene (IMO): Heston has to make a "zero-zero" landing after being diverted to Anchorage International Airport (before the plane continues on to Moscow). The plane is being "talked in" by air-traffic controller Claude Akins. The tension is temporarily relieved as Heston puts the plane down perfectly in the blinding rain. This scene follows another good one, where Heston must maneuver his Boeing 707 violently, in order to avoid a small aircraft in the same airspace. This is a good picture for an airplane lover.
