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 ...

An SR71 BLACKBIRD would never be employed to do this for a number of tactical reasons. It's hydrazine fuel expands too much on the ground and forces the SR71 to take off with low fuel load and being refueled in air by a similar aircraft like the 747. It is much larger than a 747, It flies too fast to rendezvous with a slow 747. There's no room inside for a rescue team. It's not quiet so it can't sneak up on the other plane. It's black hull is highly visible from a distance. That vertical interface personnel tube would have caused the 71 to go out of control. The jet-wash from the 747 would have totally swamped the 71.That's why they fly well below the re-fueler jet plane and a boom fuel interface is lowered down to it. See more »

Ughh, where do I start.
19 February 2004 | by (Washington D.C.) – See all my reviews

This is now officially the worst movie I have ever seen. I don't even know where to start. People who bought this movie would have been better off if the box was empty. If you are the type of viewer who watches action or military movies for technical accuracy, do yourself a favor before watching this film and kill yourself- because half way through, you'd wish you were dead. I'm no engineer- but i'm pretty sure if you open a door to a 747 at 30,000 feet, you wouldn't be able to lean out of it to close it. And I like Ice-T, but he must have been hurting for a paycheck he accepted the lead role for this miserable piece of crap. I want the two hours of my life back.
