Yeah. I know, I'm sorry. No, no, you can trust me. I'm fine.

This is one of those "only exists in Hollywood" movies. That there are too many people giving this a rating above 5 shows how desperate people have become to get a barely watchable movie. In short, someone creates a situation on the flight which is not even close to possible. And the air marshal must take control of the situation and figure out the who done it.
Neesom sleepwalks through the role he's played 10,000 times before and is just cashing on on the "Taken" series of movies. Every cliché you've ever seen is tossed into this film. Every politically correct red herring is tossed in and is so phony in nature to be embarrassing and thoroughly predictable. And the set up and scheme... airports don't exist like this anywhere. Nor do news reporters get information within 2 minutes.
The script devolves into something so stupid that it is not to be believed. When you think that the story line couldn't be stupider and more far-fetched, it takes the script one notch lower. Facts are irrelevant. Implausibility - no big deal, just keep plodding ahead.
Woe is the state of our undemanding movie goers, most of whom must never have flown a plane before. Don't say you weren't warned.
