When a deranged criminal is caught, he is then being transported by plane, along with some other criminals. Through a stroke of luck he is able to subdue the Federal agents assigned to bring him, free the other criminals, and take over the plane. He then threatens to crash the plane into a populated area unless his demands are met. The FBI agent who captured him then decides to get on the plane while in flight to do something. He does but things don't go as planned, and the criminal continues his plan to crash the plane unless the agent can do something, the military is going to shoot the plane down. Written by
We fall into a trap of predictability with this one. Even if you haven't seen "Passenger 57" you just KNOW as soon as you see the prisoners being loaded on a 747 that they are going to break loose and raise all sorts of havoc. And you just KNOW the guy who caught the bad guy in the first place is going to be involved in catching him again.
And you just KNOW some pretty female passenger is going to be involved. This time its Brittany Daniel, who I last saw as a temporary love-interest in Dawson's Creek. More than just a pretty face, we should see more of her.
All said, I thought the movie was pretty well done. It kept up a good pace and the bad guy carries the movie the way he is supposed to. The hero is boring and looks and sounds alltogether too much like a Bruce Willis knockoff.
