Terrorists take over a 747 bound from Athens to Washington D.C., supposedly to effect the release of their leader. Intelligence expert David Grant suspects another reason and convinces the military that the 'plane should not be allowed to enter U.S. airspace. An assault mission is devised, using a specially equipped 'plane designed for mid-air crew transfers, and Grant finds himself aboard the 747 with a team of military anti-terrorists who have to defuse a bomb and overpower the terrorists.

I am usually very picky about films and rarely watch action movies that
don't have a nostalgic value but somehow I tuned into this one and I
couldn't take my eyes off it. We're dealing with a flight hi-jacking
and the situation has been seen before, but the way this story is told
surprised me in a positive way.
It's trying to be realistic, and succeeds! Credits to the screenwriters
for writing a story that everyone thinks they've seen before and still
keeping the intensity throughout the film. Good acting from Kurt
Russel, Oliver Blatt and especially John Leguizamp. This is an
action-movie well worth watching. My rating: 7/10
