Any B-movie in which Dolph Lundgren plays a bad guy piloting a hijacked plane while “Ride of the Valkyries” blares on the soundtrack should not be entirely discounted. Especially when the venerable action star is not the main attraction, but rather plays second fiddle to not one but two female performers. The first is Denise Richards as an FBI agent who encounters far more than she bargained for on what was supposed to be a routine flight, and the second is Greer Grammer (daughter of Kelsey), a former Miss Teen Malibu who surprisingly makes for an impressively badass villain.

FBI agent Gretchen Blair is on a flight to Washington D.C. when the man seated beside her makes an unusual offer. He explains that the plane they’re on is about to be hijacked, and promises to pay her millions of dollars if she can get him safely back on the ground. When a gang of professional thieves takes control of the plane, she realizes he isn’t joking. Soon Gretchen finds herself caught in the middle of an elaborate mid-air heist, fighting to save the passengers while the thieves tear the plane apart, searching for the stolen loot hidden somewhere on board.

Kelsey Grammer's kids are taking over!
The Frasier star's 15-year-old daughter, Mason, is the latest of the actor's offspring to step into the spotlight, walking the runway at New York Fashion Week on Thursday.
Mason and her signature blonde locks (her older half-sisters, actresses Spencer and Greer Grammer, also rock the golden hue) stunned in a floor-length cream gown at the Malan Breton show at Madison Square Garden, striking a fierce pose at the end of the runway.
The young model was a total head-turner on the catwalk, but no one was more proud than her mom, Camille Grammer, who even visited her daughter backstage.

That means a lot of screen time, and a lot of thought about what their fashion and beauty looks will be. We chatted with the girls, who attended the awards »
