An infamous terrorist has evaded capture for a long time by being extremely clever and ruthless. Things get interesting when he hijacks a plane carrying famous security expert John Cutter, who isn't about to stand this sort of thing. Written by
Murray Chapman <email@example.com>
The original draft of the screenplay set the action at night; it was changed to a daylight story setting to save money. See more »
While chasing the plane in the Sheriff's car, Sly says to Cutter, "Hey John, you bring your ass back alive, do you hear me?" to which Cutter replies, "And miss the opportunity to get back at you? no way!", which makes no sense. This possibly indicates that Sly said something along the lines of "don't get yourself killed" in one of the takes and Cutters response to this was used in the final edit as this would make Cutters response more feasible.

Mr. Cutter, how kind of you to pay me a visit. You've been a worthy adversary. It's a shame we won't be seeing much more of each other.
Let me tell you something. If anybody else gets hurt on that plane... it's gonna take a hell of a lot more than a prison cell to keep me from ripping your fucking nuts off.
I'd come to expect more from you than cheap vulgarities.

This week, I have seen similar movies, such as Turbulence and Turbulence 2. Out of the three, I think this is the best. Isn't the actor who plays the villain here a spitting image of Alan Rickman? He even sounds like him too. I was surprised to find out it wasn't, because Rickman played a villain in "Die Hard". Anybody who doesn't pay attention to the opening credits will assume this is him and not a look-a-like. Anyway, here is a movie that's fun to watch from start to finish. Not for a second does this film ring false, or hollow for that matter. The characters are worth caring about, and Bruce Payne (who plays the main villain) gives a great performance. If you like (or love) movies about terrorism on planes, check this one out.
