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

Partially filmed in Central Florida, Wesley Snipes spoke at his former Orlando high school (Jones High) offering paid roles as extras to students with high grade point averages. The students that met this requirement were placed on a list and randomly selected from that list and can be seen portraying attendees in a carnival scene as John Cutter searches the crowd in pursuit of the terrorists.

While landed for refueling, Rane tells Chief Biggs to take a look at the plane door just forward of the landing gear. As the body of the pilot is thrown out, the reflection can be seen of the crew holding some sort of landing mat in the planes fuselage. You can then see the pilot land on the blue mat. See more »
Wesley Snipes is about the only thing that's good in this movie. The movie starts out good with interesting situation going on inside the plane. Then the setting moves to the ground, and we see local law enforcement agency and the FBI getting involved, things gets dumb and dumber.
Why they had to abandon the airplane and go into the boring ground scene, I have no idea. They lost all the plot right there and then. The guy who escaped was absolute nobody, so it wasn't interesting even if he did escape. Movie gets worse as it progresses as even the fight scene including Wesley Snipes gets worse.
The stunt at the end was ridiculous. How can a police car catch up with a jet plane that's about to reach take off velocity ?
The fault was with the writer. The movie could have been 100% better if Wesley Snipes was allowed to sleuth around the airplane inflicting damages to the bad guys. Then it would have been a budget version of Die-hard, or maybe better, and the movie surely would have been a classic with sequels.
Too bad that they blew their opportunity, because of poor script writing.
