Storyline

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 Robert Lynch <docrlynch@yahoo.com>

Goofs

When Cutter rides away on the motorcycle, a shot of the plane shows the door closed and nobody else being released from the plane. A minute later when the FBI arrive at the airport, passengers are again being released from the plane. There is no reason why the terrorists would have closed the door and stopped releasing passengers, and then started over again. See more »

Terrible
15 September 2002 | by Jub-2See all my reviews

The film is only 1 hour 20 minutes, the plot never really gets off the ground! The acting by Liz Hurley is terrible, she tries to put on a posh English accent and just sounds so false. Apart from that all she does is hold a gun in the air totally unnaturally.

The film never explores anything in any depth, an infamous terrorist is being flown on a plane (747 according to the actors but external shots show a DC10), and is rescued by some of his fellow terrorists who to be honest are totally unprofessional. This could have been a better film had the story lines developed a bit better, and Wesley not overcome all the terrorists so easily.
