How can you look at this film and not consider it ingenious?!
1) I turned this movie on right as they got on the airplane. When the crazy Russian guys entered the plane, the dark and scary music started playing, trying to convince you that it was them who were terrorists. They make it kind of like Air Force One, but a little more prejudiced. 2) As you look at the characters, you can guess the hero of the day is going to end up being Jeffrey Nordling and that the nerdy and weak guy Craig Sheffer is the type of guy that gets killed immediately for disobeying "Elliot's" rules. 3) Was the Russian guy and "British Intelligence" guy in on it together?
A:Well they had to be. What "two sets" of terrorists enter on a plane, especially when it happens to be for people who are awarded a free flight for the last flight? B: No Way it can't be. The Russian chap claimed that the other guy was lying. Additionally, the other Russians were dozed by the ice in the water. C: But wait!! They had to be! They both had those ridiculous wolverine-like claws that were incredibly original.
4)This plot was simply humorous. An anthrax bomb to destroy everything in a 5000 mile radius. WHATT!!!?!?!?!?! So Random. Hey and remember those claws? That was cool.
5) After we discover that Elliot isn't British Intelligence, he changes his accent from that English accent. Clever.
6) We can clearly pick up Elliot's inner insanity when he goes "Ok I need a volunteer, anyone? Come on! You all have a right to vote!" That is what I call sweet acting.
7)Elliot takes out his anger on the lawyer because he hates all lawyers stereotypically because of his past. Simply Stunning. He throws him out of the plane and he happens to land in the air traffic control center. And what's even more brilliant, Elliot knew it was going to happen as he says something like "send them a message for me!"
8) When the girl resists before he tries to throw the guy off the plane, he is already a little angry at her for her little performed plan in the upper compartment. Realistically, he wants nothing to do with her and he goes "will you stop it! UGH! I'm sick of you!" THAT KILLED ME.
ONE OF THE FUNNIEST MOVIES I'VE EVER SEEN.
