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 »

OK if you are not expecting james bond
31 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

clearly a low budget film and the staging and stock shots evidence this. but for what it is, it works. tough guys, good looking girls, and lots of action. i liked the flight attendant, the journalist and the pilot.... that's the guy i want in the cockpit on my next flight. I am up for a sequel and this movie sets the stage nicely for one. Only difference I would like to see is on the budget. spend five times what was spent on the first movie (whatever that amount was ) and you will have a good picture. I am not saying you need to be on location but get staging the has the rounded appearance and proportions of an airplane not a hotel lobby and cast situation actors conforming to the purported location.
