Scott Adkins was originally cast as Rostow Pawlak but due to filming delays he dropped out. Holt McCallany then accepted the role. See more »
While at CIA's Paris HQ, agent Paul Ross is shown some info from a hard drive recovered during an operation (gone bad). It shows that someone has collected data about Bruce Lieb's plane, crew, etc. The plane shown is an McDonnell Douglas MD-11, but when we get to see Bruce's plane, shortly after, at the airport, it is a Boeing B-747.

Bad acting, OK action
All special agent Paul Ross (Randy Coulture) wants to do is to win back his ex-fiancé, but his plans are sadly thrawrted when his love is on a mammoth plane that's been hijacked (hence the genius name of this film) by terrorists, which makes his day that much worse as he had been suspended earlier that day.
While not nearly as bad as some of the reviews that I've read, it's not a particularly good film either. The action scenes are all right, it's just that it's plot is devoid of any originality and is hopelessly derivative which draws comparisons to similar terrorists on a plane films that this movie can't help but not fair well to. The acting is also not one of its stronger.points. All said, the movie while watchable is a bit forgettable.
