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

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 »
[Talking on the aircraft radio]
This is Chief Leonard Biggs, Lake Lucille Police Department. Now if you tell me what you want, I'll tell you what I can deliver.
I want this plane fully fueled. If I do not see a fuel truck in position and functioning in the next five minutes, you will be responsible for a great many deaths.
I'm not fully authorized to grant any demands at this time.
I suggest you look out your window toward the plane just in front of the landing gear.

I'm less than ten minutes into the movie but have a pretty good idea
where it's going. Let's see: (1) a renegade cop who (2) underwent some
kind of personal trauma and is (3) mad at the world but (4) nonpareil
in his line of work (5) finds a new purpose in life by (6) embarking on
an improbable mission (7) facing tough odds. Seven most pathetic
clichés just to describe the main protagonist.
Now bear with me. This is a long shot but I'll hazard a guess here.
Notwithstanding the "annoyance" (was anybody buying that?) he displayed
toward the heroine's naivete in the mock hijack scene, somewhere down
the line he's going to bone her, as "circumstances" force them to work
together and their initial supposed antipathy turns into True Love(TM).
Am I close? Well, 70 more minutes to find out!
Speaking of the heroine: (1) single, (2) compatible, (3) interested,
(4) highly intelligent, (5) tough, except when she has to play the part
of the damsel in distress, (6) multitalented, (7) HOT. Hey, forget
Rambo: Those two could win a minor war singlehandedly!
This movie has all the potential to turn out to be a piece of vacuous
schlock a la "Speed" (or is that, "S-tu-peed"). (Actually, I saw it a
few years back but given its memorability factor of ZERO, can't
remember a thing.)
Provided you let your brain out to graze in pastures green, it's a
watchable flick so long as you either plow thru it as quickly as
possible (think: Ripping off a band-aid) or take plenty of breaks in
between playing and pausing.
