Storyline

When a Marine Colonel orders his men to massacre a village they were sent to rescue some hostages but when they found them dead they decide to get some payback. Upon returning to the States the Colonel would be court-martialed and made a plea agreement wherein all the blame is on him and his men would be discharged and receive any benefits they're entitled. But the General presiding over his trial chooses not to agree to the agreement and throws the book at the Colonel and has his men dishonorably discharged thus eliminating all their benefits. When the Colonel is being transported, his men bust him out. Sometime later the General has been appointed to an important government position he boards a plane to go on his latest assignment. The Colonel and his men are also on the plane. They takeover the plane. When the tower learns of the deviation a government man arrives and upon learning of the Colonel's presence on the plane sends a team to get on board the plane while in flight. When ...

Did You Know?

Goofs

On a 747 autopilot is automatically disengaged when the yoke is moved. Also there is on 360 degrees on a compass rose with zero representing 360. There is no 519 degrees! When coming to a stop on a runway, flaps are engaged long BEFORE landing not during touchdown. Also to slow down you must not only reduce thrust to zero you must apply REVERSE thrust to push back. You don't turn the jet right or left with the yoke. You use the rudder foot pedals. The yoke is for pitching and yawing. It;s almost impossible for a untrained civilian to fly or land a 747 even with a over-weight B-rated actor playing a ATC 747 expert. See more »

Wasn't sure at first.
6 June 2004 | by (Tulsa, OK) – See all my reviews

Wasn't sure when the movie started but as typical for a movie/show starring Ice T, it took off in a positive way (no pun intended). The action sequences were of great quality and believable. This movie kept my attention from start to finish. I can't wait to add it to my collection. I do have to admit that some of my favorite parts were with Mr. Wonderful. >From the moment he boarded the plane the character was constantly rude. From the time he lost his cell phone until Kelly (Flight Attendant) punched him at the end. Makes you think about all the people you see in the airport. If you haven't seen the movie, you should.
