Passenger 57 (1992) was scheduled to air on a Starz Entertainment Group channel the night of 9/11. What with the themes of terrorism on an airplane, the broadcast was obviously cancelled. See more »
When Charles Rane is being led up the steps back to the plane in Louisiana, Vincent shoots the FBI agents. Charles Rane runs up the plane and makes it all the way up to the top step and past Mr. Forget. After we see Rane run back onto the plane, they cut to a wider shot which shows him running up the steps again - about 6 steps down from the plane and Mr. Forget. See more »

Passenger 57 is an enjoyable and rather underrated action film. Although there is not too much of a storyline, the slick action scenes combined with some very good performances from Wesley Snipes and Bruce Payne kept me entertained from start to finish.
While Passenger 57 offers nothing really new to the action genre, it does offer plenty of fast paced chaos and explosions and combined with some entertaining hand-to-hand combat skills by Snipes, it is certainly better than a lot of other standard action fares out there.
Snipes gives a very good performance as the lead and Bruce Payne is brilliant as the mentally unstable villain. The other cast are somewhat overshadowed by Snipes and Payne, but do an adequate enough job.
Overall I was very pleased by Passenger 57, so much so that it proudly belongs in my DVD collection. A very good choice for action fans and a must for Snipes fans. 8/10.
And don't forget...."Always bet on black!"
