Goofs

Early in the movie there is a news report stating "a trove of arms from German military forces were discovered in Pakistan". While the reporter specifically says "German military" equipment it shows British SA80 rifles as the supposed German military equipment. Germans do not use the British SA80 rifle platform, instead using their own weapons manufactured in-country. See more »

Bad acting, OK action
7 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All special agent Paul Ross (Randy Coulture) wants to do is to win back his ex-fiancé, but his plans are sadly thrawrted when his love is on a mammoth plane that's been hijacked (hence the genius name of this film) by terrorists, which makes his day that much worse as he had been suspended earlier that day.

While not nearly as bad as some of the reviews that I've read, it's not a particularly good film either. The action scenes are all right, it's just that it's plot is devoid of any originality and is hopelessly derivative which draws comparisons to similar terrorists on a plane films that this movie can't help but not fair well to. The acting is also not one of its stronger.points. All said, the movie while watchable is a bit forgettable.
