Passenger 57 (1992)
USA / English
"He's an ex-cop with a bad mouth, a bad attitude, and a bad seat. For the terrorists on flight 163 . . . he's very bad news.
"An airline security expert must take action when he finds himself trapped on a passenger jet when terrorists sieze control of it.
A pretty poor effort at an airline hostage movie
This movie could have done with an extra 40 minutes in order to develop
characters further. As it stands we are left with a movie that has a
cliche-ridden plot, weak characters and lacking in excitement.
Bruce Payne is reasonably good as the bad guy but the 84 minutes really
didn't allow him time to explore the character's possibilities. Wesley
Snipes isn't on best form here either.
If you want to see a well-produced aeroplane hostage movie, take a look at
Air Force One and give this a miss.
