Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Early in the movie, just before the plane lands in Lake Lucille, Louisiana, there are two exterior shots of the plane. In the first, the plane is flying over Long Key, in the Florida Keys, then a few minutes later it is over the Upper Florida Keys, over 600 miles from Louisiana. See more »

Just Pass It......
9 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wanna start by saying that I absolutely love "Die Hard", it's one of my favorite films of all time and its the film that changed the action genre forever. In the years following its release, many of the action flicks have borrowed the basic premise of "Die Hard", making it film about a cop or someone along those lines fighting the bad guys in a limited location, whether its on a bus (Speed), a battleship (Under Siege), a hockey stadium (Sudden Death). But now what we get here is "Die Hard on a plane" which goes by the name "Passenger 57".

It's not that good. I really didn't find myself caring about about the cop whose wife was killed in a holdup all because Snipes just doesn't give a lot of emotional depth in here. And its too bad that he wasn't given good material to work with since his lines seem so forced and awkward when he says them. In "Die Hard", it was totally different because Bruce Willis blended into the role of John McClane perfectly, he just soothed out his lines with heart, soul and personality. Snipes just does the opposite.

Also, the main villain Charles Rane didn't interest me that much, 'cause Bruce Payne's performance was somewhat wooden and dry. But I'll admit that the part when the little kid on the plane pretended to shoot him and Rane responded by pretending to shoot him back was somewhat amusing.

The martial arts action was another low-point for me, the sequences seemed to be very stilted and stiff. Every action flick has at least GOT to have good action, there's no denying that. But when I see the kind of action this film has to offer, it doesn't make me feel like I wanna do it in real life to someone I hate.

One thing that wasn't too shabby was the soundtrack and the composers skill to at least save the action scenes from falling apart completely.

I wouldn't call this "boring" to watch, but it's just a little bland and uninteresting, in fact its got a less than 90 minute runtime, so you could watch it if you REALLY, REALLY don't have anything to do.
