Ryan Weaver romances beautiful women before he kills them. Ryan is arrested, convicted, and is part of a Christmas Eve transfer of prisoners on a transcontinental 747 commercial flight. Other airlines at JFK may have holiday passengers waiting on stand-by, but this jumbo jet takes off with a lot of empty seats. Ryan and another prisoner overpower and kill their guards. The few civilian passengers are herded into a "pantry" on the plane and are not seen again until the end of the movie. Ryan eliminates the other prisoners and all the crew members except Teri Halloran. The remainder of the movie follows a "cat-and-mouse" game between Ryan and Teri on the 747.Written by

Despite being a box-office failure when it was theatrically released, this movie had two direct-to-video sequels due to its being one of the most rented films of that year on home video See more »
When the plane is flying through the storm, all of the exterior shots show the lights inside blinking on and off through the windows. However, during the interior shots, the lights are on steady; none of them blink at all. See more »

I would have considered this movie mediocre, if it hadn't been for a few factual errors and bizarre plot ideas.
After the initial action, it's one (psycho) against one (heroine) and nothing much happens apart from the plane shaking around as it flies through a storm which swings the upper hand from one side to another. Unfortunately neither side manages to completely finish off the other quickly.
The background story of the criminal's case and "history" with a certain detective is brought out a couple of times, but unsatisfactorily and just confused me.
Like "Dead Calm" but much worse.
