|Kurt Russell, Steven Seagal, Halle Berry, John Leguizamo and others in a heroic ensemble deliver first-class thrills in a taut thriller from producer Joel Silver (The Matrix) and director Stuart Baird (U.S. Marshals). The mission: board a hijacked 747 in midair. Avoid detection. Loacte and disable a hair-triggered nerve-toxin bomb that could wipe out the Easter Seaboard. Execute a split-second attack that overwhelms the terrorists and safeguards the passengers. Do it all without air-to-ground radio. And do it before an increasingly jittery U.S. military blasts the airliner out of the sky. "If you like action adventure, this is the ticket? (Joel Siegel, Good Morning America/ABC-TV).|
Editor's NoteAn elite military team must board an airborne, hijacked plane to defuse a nerve gas bomb that could wipe out the entire East Coast. The plot follows a "Die Hard" formula, providing competent suspense.

Plot SummaryA flight en route to Washington, D.C. is hijacked by Islamic terrorists, who demand $50 million and their leader's release. To show that they mean business, the men have smuggled enough nerve gas onboard to wipe out half of the U.S. The government must now make an "executive decision" as to whether to shoot down the plane and sacrifice the passengers, for the sake and safety of America. | In the meantime, a gung-ho, multi-ethnic task force is sent into action, led by no-nonsense Austin Travis, and including intelligence analyst David Grant. They attempt to sneak onto the plane in midair, using an experimental aircraft that attaches to the bottom of the jetliner. However, Travis does not survive. Now, The tuxedoed Grant (who's more comfortable behind a desk) must lead the commandoes, and find a way to stop the terrorists -- before it's too late.
