Storyline

Air travel is the safest, the FAA says. But the FAA never figured the risk with Charles Rane on board. "The Rane of Terror" has masterminded four terrorist attacks. Soon there will be a fifth -- and that's bad news for the passengers on Flight 163. But there's good news too: the man in seat 57! Wesley Snipes plays John Cutter, an undercover security operative who enters the lavatory and exits to find Rane (Bruce Payne) and his gang have taken over. Cutter's next move is clear. Do. Or be done to. Written by Robert Lynch <docrlynch@yahoo.com>

Worst Plane Movie Ever!!!
29 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie is the absolute worst airplane movie I have ever seen! It's a mix between comedy, Miami Vice, Karate Kid, and black power all condensed into 80 minutes. They use Karate moves WAY too much in unnecessary situations, there is major discrimination towards Southerners and British, and the decisions made by the made character could have been thought up better by a preschooler. Seriously. The acting sucks, it is entirely cheesy and their punchlines sound like a self-centered fifth grader wrote this for his class play. I have no idea what the screenwriters were thinking when they filmed this. Just look at all the goofs for this movie and I can assure you this is longer than a low-budget 90's flunk. Do NOT watch this movie!!!
