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.

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 ...

Who Left the Vault Door Open?
6 August 2001 | by (Maplewood NJ) – See all my reviews

Or did Phoenician Entertainment find the key to the vault with every piece of stock footage available? First we had SONIC IMPACT...then SUBMERGED...and now AIR RAGE. I see that this film's working title was "Purple Heart" and you earn one (nothing demeaning to those members who have really earned one) if you can sit through this useless drivel.

What we have is a disgruntled Marine Corps colonel who hijacks a passenger jet carrying the nominee for Defense Secretary. In fact, this colonel has it in for the nominee and he also wants a disk that his is carrying.

We quickly jump to a poor man's Executive Decision as Ice-T (of all people) leads the worst group of commandos to assault the airliner via air transfer from an SR-71.

If you don't get the idea yet, stick with the original EXECUTIVE DECISION and if this is on cable late at night when you can't sleep, do yourself a favor...watch it because you will fall asleep.
