The original draft of the screenplay set the action at night; it was changed to a daylight story setting to save money. See more »
When the terrorist begins walking towards the bathroom where Cutter is hiding, we see his view as he approaches the bathroom and he does not have far to walk. Twenty seconds later Cutter opens the door and sees the terrorist still approaching the bathroom. It should not have taken the terrorist this long to walk such a short distance. See more »
Wesley Snipes is about the only thing that's good in this movie. The movie starts out good with interesting situation going on inside the plane. Then the setting moves to the ground, and we see local law enforcement agency and the FBI getting involved, things gets dumb and dumber.
Why they had to abandon the airplane and go into the boring ground scene, I have no idea. They lost all the plot right there and then. The guy who escaped was absolute nobody, so it wasn't interesting even if he did escape. Movie gets worse as it progresses as even the fight scene including Wesley Snipes gets worse.
The stunt at the end was ridiculous. How can a police car catch up with a jet plane that's about to reach take off velocity ?
The fault was with the writer. The movie could have been 100% better if Wesley Snipes was allowed to sleuth around the airplane inflicting damages to the bad guys. Then it would have been a budget version of Die-hard, or maybe better, and the movie surely would have been a classic with sequels.
Too bad that they blew their opportunity, because of poor script writing.
