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.

Did You Know?

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

While the rest of the aircraft interior set looks authentic, the cockpit is amateurish. The bars between the panes of glass on the windscreen are from domestic windows and the instrumentation is unrealistic. See more »

Seen "Executive Decision" ?
26 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a ridiculuous movie. The plane they are using is a copy, even the NAME from Executive Decision. The same boring plot as all the other plane movies combined with "B" type acting and terrible animation equalling this horror. Oh and COME ON.... landing lights at 39,000 feet? LOL - TBS.. get a clue!
