Fasten those Seat Belts for this "Final Approach" ****
31 May 2008 | by edwagreenSee all my reviews

Wonderful action movie.

While it follows the usual plot line, it is excitingly done and holds your interest every step of the way.

As usual, we see a guy getting fired for becoming too zealous during a shooting at a cult, only for the guy to reemerge in a hijacking of an airplane. We get the pilots knocked out or dead, a young excited stewardess who can become the center of attention. A coronary patient who succumbs to an attack from all the excitement, a doctor not allowed to help the patient due to racism, dissension among the hijackers, are they there to make a political point or are they just a bunch of crooks out to clean out a bank?

With all the usual plot lines, this film works due to the excitement which is generated.

The cast is perfect and of course there are always people available who can land the plane.
