Passenger 57 is a 1992 action-packed thriller about the hijacking of a jumbo jet. John Cutter (Wesley Snipes) is a former airline security expert taking a trip as he is mourning the death of his wife. Cutter happens to be in seat 57 of a flight that is taken over by a gang led by Charle Rane (Bruce Payne), an English terrorist. Rane is secretly being transferred to a Los Angeles prison by the FBI, but his gang learns of the transfer and thwarts the FBI by posing as airline employees. During the takeover, Cutter is in the airplane's restroom, unknown to the hijackers. With cool efficiency, one-liners and martial arts prowess, Cutter is able to disarm the gang enough to force them to land the plane at a small rural landing strip. There Cutter chases Rane through a local fairground in one of the film's many set pieces. Passenger 57 was directed by Kevin Hooks, from a screenplay by David Loughery and Dan Gordon.

    Quite a usual action-flick. Not much depth to be found, the fighting scenes work in the favor of the hero (it is amazing how much beating a human body can take before going down), and all in all there aren't too many twists on the way from beginning to end. How romance was worked into this movie was ridiculously obvious, and so clich it isn't even sweet or surprising - just dull and boring, not to mention unnecessary. Wesley Snipes works well in his role, but then again, it is exactly the same act any seasoned action movie actor could pull off. It isn't his fault, though: the movie just doesn't have anything special to give. All in all, the movie is worth one watch and enjoyable during that time for sure. Were the movie longer, though, then we might actually have a problem in our hands. :Dmoreless
  • Great but hard to watch after 9/11.
