Storyline

The leader of a South African Nation is imprisoned. His followers, led by Zabo, hijack a plane with the intent to use the passengers as hostages to trade for his release. They select a plane carrying a religious leader to use as their main hostage. They soon learn that they have an added bonus of the daughter and grandson of Colonel Shaw, a bigwig in the country. The grandson all the while has to cope with the dual problems of being hijacked and held hostage while needing a kidney transplant. The hijackers have everything in their favor, except that the colonel's daughter is the sweetheart of Major Sam Striker. Striker puts together a band of mercenaries and sets about freeing the hostages. Written by Tophee

Don't waste your time watching this awful film
7 February 1999 | by TopheeSee all my reviews

This is a bad film. Poor plot, awful acting and terrible cinematography. Goofs are too numerous to consider itemising. Don't waste your time and money with this film. It gets a two, because I've never seen a one.
