Great! And one of the last B movies worth watching.

Excluding some horror titles, of course.

This one comprable to JCVD and Steven Seagal's action flicks that were released theatrically (an important distinction - not direct to video) in the 90s.

Decent budget, goofy International Super-Villian, with an equally goofy maniacal scheme completely
ripped-off from Die Hard, 007, etc.

Tom Sizemore, Elizabeth Hurley and Wesley delivering stupid yet kinda witty banter whilst blowing each other (and everyone) away.

A Redneck Sherriff even pops up, to bust Wesley's chops.

Do I have add that Wesley is reluctantly drawn out of retirement - for one last job? Nope, all the cliches and tropes somehow reassuring.

No over-scaled CGI here, again this is one of the last of its kind.

Perfect running time, too. Clocks in at 90 minutes, which is all you need.

Better than Executive Descision?(Seagal and Kurt Russell.) You be the judge - a two-way tie for first, IMHO. A great double feature at the least.

Buy and have a (ahem) blast!

Truly Dreadful Movie
Verified purchase
I don't know who gives these movies great reviews, but they must be drunk. All the action occurs with everyone else just sitting around doing nothing while the bad guys fight Snipes. All the characters are cardboard cutouts. The white sidekick who does nothing but pumps up the main character (Snipes) and grins knowingly when Snipes gets the girl at the end. Then there's the girl who acts heroically, but not too heroically to infringe on Snipes killing all the bad guys in the lady half hour or so of the movie. Then there's Rayne, the terrorist who kills the passenger and delivers all his lines as maliciously as the script calls for, then shakes his head all the way to the bank. It really is a horrible movie. Truly horrible. I think Snipes must write about three quarters of the reviews as part of his contract. (Did I mention how bad the movie is?) Go ahead and watch it. Then give it an honest review.

Snipes, Greenwood, Sizemore Rock
Verified purchase
I loved this movie. Snipes is so good-looking and an even better actor, as is Sizemore and Greenwood. The antagonist's acting is also great. This is a a great action flick with the usual silly parts like Snipes getting back on the airline from a car. However, if i am not mistaken, Snipes really does know how to fight. I am really sad that Snipes was ripped from Hollywood due to tax problems. One less terrific and sexy actor gone like Cage, another fantastic actor.

Wesley Snipe's Best Action Packed Film Ever!
Verified purchase
This is one of Wesley Snipes best role and performance action packed film in the early 90's. Bruce Payne was the smartest bad guy terrorist you'll ever see but the end of him will be justice. The storyline was believable and real. The acting was absolutely great. The effects needed to be real as it is. Best roles and performances by Elizabeth Hurley, Tom Sizemore, Bruce Greenwood & Robert Hooks. I recommend it to those who like Wesley Snipes and action packed films.

Great movie

This is by far Wesley Snipe's greatest film and setup his career for further success. Lots of action and some hilarious one liners. "You ever play roulette?" "Always bet on black."

HIGHLY CLICHED BUT DECENT
Verified purchase
This film has nothing new to offer but is quite appealing. I can't decide whether Bruce Payne is hammy or believable as the villain. He plays Charles Rayne (or the Rayne of terror) a notorious airplane hijacker who is being transported to LA from Miami for trial. But as soon as his plane is in the air his band of nameless crooks (including a crazily miscast Liz Hurley) set him free. But not to worry because John Cutter (Wesley Snipes) is on board. And he just happens to be head of security for the airline. It's his job to round up the crooks and save the passengers from the evil intentions of Rayne. And he's only got 80 minutes to do it in.
I'm not kidding. This movie is 84 minutes long. The credits roll at the 80-minute mark. Minus 2 minutes for the opening sequence and another 20 (of tedious character building) for the action to begin. You're left with a 60-minute slice of entertainment. It makes you wonder why they bothered. If Warner wanted to make a great hijack movie why did they bother with the Passenger 57 script? It's too short and too clichéd. A couple of brief moments of action make it barely worthwhile, but watch on it TV. Don't rent it or buy the DVD.
