I saw this film quite some time ago and forgot about it until recently when I watched it again. The film is about a group of terrorists that hijack a plane which has a bomb on board, for the terrorists the aim is to fly to Washington and cause as much destruction as possible. They have one problem, Kurt Russel and his crew have got onto the plane to do their bit.
Kurt Russell is great, he starts off with no experience or confidence but ends up as the mastermind to the attack, I think he manages to kill a person and land a 747, typical really but it works. Steven Segal also has a role as a man in uniform that doesn't think Russel is up for the task but he gets what's coming to him.
The terrorists make you feel angry, I'm pretty sure I did not think the way I do know about the film as I did over ten years ago, I'm sure 9/11 has something to do with that. The director has captured the terrorist image very well and I think has done a very good job on making the audience hate them.
Any way buy the film it still feels modern it has not lost time at all.
