Bill says that the suspect making the calls will be put into "federal custody" on arriving in London. No law enforcement agencies in the UK are known as "federal", they would be met by the Metropolitan Police and the UK Border Agency. However, it is quite possible that he would request that the airplane return to a U.S. airport. See more »
I saw an advanced screening of this movie yesterday, and I was absolutely blown away. I had hoped it would be a fun thrill-ride, but I did not expect it to be as exciting and involved as it was.
My favorite part of this movie, was the fact that it takes a plot that is implausible, and makes it as plausible as possible. You can definitely tell that the writers did their research on air marshals, airplane mechanics, etc. There was not one moment in this film that I was bored, and it was filled to the brim with twists, and turns.
There definitely is a lot that went into this movie, and even though it'll have you thinking more deeply about the security of airlines, most of all it's just a really, really fun ride.
