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>

Trivia

The original draft of the screenplay set the action at night; it was changed to a daylight story setting to save money. See more »

Goofs

In the last scene in the air, one of the aircraft doors is completely sucked out of the plane, though when the plane is landing all doors are still in perfect condition. The plane's left side faces the camera as it lands which shows both doors still in place. The door which was blown out is located on the other side. When Biggs stops to offer Cutter and Marti a ride into town, in the background you can see emergency workers using this door to board the plane. See more »

Great action, decent acting, paper-thin plot
3 June 2009 | by emperor_benderSee all my reviews

I tried to watch this movie without thinking at all and to just relax but it wasn't the easiest thing in the world to do.

A few things made this movie really great: Wesley Snipes, the music, some of the lines, the action.

Other than those, the movie could have been much better.

Wesley Snipes plays John Cutter, a former airline security expert who is flying on a plane when terrorists happen to take over. Bruce Payne plays Charles Rane AKA "Rane of Terror", a terrorist who leads the attack on the plane. Tom Sizemore plays Sly Delvecchio, Cutter's buddy. Thats all I care to mention actor-wise.

I think Snipes could have used a lot more screen-time or at least more back-story. I barely got to know him.

The movie was in ten places at once, which made it extremely difficult to follow along. However, I still enjoyed the film.

Not a bad mindless movie, but try not to think too much.

6/10.
