Storyline

Over 300 people are believed to be held hostage in a Boeing 747 enroute from Sydney, Australia, to Los Angeles, California. The plane, under command of veteran pilot Captain John Prescott, is two hours from land; however, early reports suggest that a biochemical device hidden onboard the plane is timed to detonate within the hour. The device, believed to contain a nerve gas ten times deadlier than the Sarin gas released in a Tokyo subway in 1995, is reported to be tied to a countdown trigger with less than an hour remaining. Apparently disguised within passenger carry-on luggage, the bomb seems to have been planted not by a political terrorist, but by a madman acting in hopes of revenge. Alerted to the man's presence in Australia, both governments have begun the chase. The American FBI, present in Australia for security preparations in advance of the upcoming 2000 Olympic Games, have dispatched agents to work in collaboration with Australian police forces. Details at this point are ... Written by DANIEL

Trivia

All external airplane shots are taken from Executive Decision (1996), so the fictitious airline had to have the same name as in that movie, "Oceanic". See more »

Goofs

When they are cleared to descend to 9000 ft, the captain repeats this clearance by "cleared to descend to 90", which is a flight level. You can't mix the two. See more »

Decent, But Nothing Out Of The Ordinary
29 July 2001 | by (Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

A pretty standard airline suspense story about a bomb planted on a 747 on a flight from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles. There's some decent suspense, but the whole thing is pretty cliché (time clock clicking down to the last few seconds, the usual brief shots of faces taut with the strain, etc.), and the performances are average at best.

What really bugged me in this movie was why the writers felt the need to have an FBI agent conveniently present in Sydney when the threat was phoned in, and not only present but becoming front and centre in the search for the bomber. Maybe I'm being too sensitive here, but I rather suspect that the Australian police wouldn't need the FBI's help in what seemed to be a pretty routine piece of policework. That just made the whole thing too American-centred (with no discernible reason or need for it) for my liking.

Overall, though, it's an average to decent movie. 5/10.
