Storyline

Over 300 people are believed to be held hostage in a Boeing 747 enroute from Sydney, Australia, to Los Angeles, California. The plane, under command of veteran pilot Captain John Prescott, is two hours from land; however, early reports suggest that a biochemical device hidden onboard the plane is timed to detonate within the hour. The device, believed to contain a nerve gas ten times deadlier than the Sarin gas released in a Tokyo subway in 1995, is reported to be tied to a countdown trigger with less than an hour remaining. Apparently disguised within passenger carry-on luggage, the bomb seems to have been planted not by a political terrorist, but by a madman acting in hopes of revenge. Alerted to the man's presence in Australia, both governments have begun the chase. The American FBI, present in Australia for security preparations in advance of the upcoming 2000 Olympic Games, have dispatched agents to work in collaboration with Australian police forces. Details at this point are ... Written by DANIEL

Trivia

All external airplane shots are taken from Executive Decision (1996), so the fictitious airline had to have the same name as in that movie, "Oceanic". See more »

Goofs

Several times, when the plane is in flight and cruising, the head-on view of the plane shows the leading edge flaps extended which would mean that the plane would have to be flying slowly, not cruising. On the other hand, as the plane is on the ground and supposed to be landing, and they ought to be extended, they're retracted. See more »

Shot Down in Flames
14 May 2001 | by Bcaldc10See all my reviews

Could it be possible for a film to have any more worn cliches as this film? Another airliner in trouble. Another heroic captain saving the passengers from certain doom. There was absolutely zero suspense and zero originality here. As the plane's pilot Jack Wagner was awful. All smirk and smarm and no hint of realism. When making your viewing reservations be sure to book another flight. This one was grounded for mechanical defects.
