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

When Cutter rides away on the motorcycle, a shot of the plane shows the door closed and nobody else being released from the plane. A minute later when the FBI arrive at the airport, passengers are again being released from the plane. There is no reason why the terrorists would have closed the door and stopped releasing passengers, and then started over again. See more »
You know, that's what I admire about you! Even though you are being hit on by absolutely beautiful woman, you are determined to maintaining your vow of chastity. You know, you'd make a hell of a republican!

Although it's a quite well executed show with variety too, where we're not just in the air for a long time, Passenger 57 doesn't achieve all it, sets out to. Snipes is solid, while great British character actor, Brice Payne, is menacingly unforgettable, a guy you don't up close to, or personal with. Also unforgettable as his girlfriend, stewardess, is Hurley who doesn't do a bad job either, playing bad good. The film feels like it's been cut short somewhere, and does share quite a few faults, that de cheapens to it a cheesy level, but the film is a lot of fun. Too is watching Snipes rip into Payne, the fight near the end I would of loved to have been longer. What I liked especially, before take off, is a number of scenes, as too a flashback one, involving Snipes's wife who was killed in a liquor store hold up, hence, why he got into the business of counteract terrorism. An early scene is a great humorous and demonstrative show of plane security. A couple of other scenes, we gain a little knowledge into terrorism. Here's some far fetched scenes: 1. Payne jumping out of a window, from about four stories up, and managing to still get up 2. The plane of passengers not reacting to the sound of sirens outsides, as if they don't exist. 3. Snipes rolling onto the tarmac in the path of one of the wheels but avoiding it. 4. Snipes grabbing a bag of popcorn at the carnival, without paying while in full view of the proprietor. Want me to go on. And why the hell would you have a carnival with rides and that, next to a frickin' airport. And how they got away at the end, when back on the ground, telling the news, it was all a safety anti terrorism experiment I couldn't believe. But hey, lets avoid all that, and just get caught up, watching Snipes kick arse, in this not badly made, by very cheesy flick. An addictive cheese at that.
