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 taking off, the silhouette of a Boeing 747 is shown, apparently the one of the Oceanic flight. With a bit of attention, the paintings of a British Airways can be seen on the tail. See more »

I'm certain we passed a perfect spot a little further back
1 August 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This happened to be on, and I wasn't really doing anything else at the time. It's a made-for-TV thriller about tension on an airborne plane. Those tend to be pretty formulaic, and this is certainly no exception. It's average as they come, if it'll basically get the job done. The developments are all entirely predictable(care to take a guess if anyone panics?), and some of the dialog is really poor. With two exceptions, the cast is all nobodies, and it shows; the acting varies greatly, and there are definitely cases of scenery-chewing. None of the characters are memorable. The development of them is decent. Anyway, Jack Wagner takes a break from appearing in the fantasies of female Melrose Place viewers and returns to the small screen, and he's enjoyable enough to watch. Ernie Hudson brings some of his coolness to this, but as you may already know, his presence does not on its own a good flick make. The suspense and such are fine, if you just remember to pretend you don't know exactly where things are going. Honestly, you don't need to have seen any of these to be able to tell, the clichés are known by most. The way it's shot and edited is OK. I recommend this to fans of this kind of movie. 5/10
