Air travel is the safest, the FAA says. But the FAA never figured the risk with Charles Rane on board. "The Rane of Terror" has masterminded four terrorist attacks. Soon there will be a fifth -- and that's bad news for the passengers on Flight 163. But there's good news too: the man in seat 57! Wesley Snipes plays John Cutter, an undercover security operative who enters the lavatory and exits to find Rane (Bruce Payne) and his gang have taken over. Cutter's next move is clear. Do. Or be done to.Written by

This movie could have done with an extra 40 minutes in order to develop the characters further. As it stands we are left with a movie that has a cliche-ridden plot, weak characters and lacking in excitement.
Bruce Payne is reasonably good as the bad guy but the 84 minutes really didn't allow him time to explore the character's possibilities. Wesley Snipes isn't on best form here either.
If you want to see a well-produced aeroplane hostage movie, take a look at Air Force One and give this a miss.
