The private 747 is supposed to be departing from Paris Charles De Gaulle airport. However, in the shot where the aircraft's wheels are being raised, the number '34' is seen painted on the end of the runway; indicating that the aircraft is departing from runway 16/34. There is no such runway in CDG; they are all east/west orientated (08L/26R, 08R/26L, 09L/27R and 09R/27L) See more »
I sat through some of this thinking it would become funnier...
Cool - here comes Vinnie Jones, whom I'm a big fan of & Dominic Purcell.
The aircraft scenes look like they're shot in a hotel - very confusing. Do they really have glass fruit bowls sitting on polished wooden tables? Or cargo bays with cars inside, fully pressurised and air-conditioned with extensive lighting and stairs leading up to the passenger compartment?
The action... they do a clever job of avoiding any real action on screen - and there is no excitement or suspense.
The budget for this movie obviously wouldn't even cover the price of admission. The story was so bad, and the plot so sad, that I had to resist the urge to turn it off for a while. Initially thinking it was going to be a pythonesque slow starting rip roaring comedy...
The joke's on me for wasting 40 minutes on this trash!
