||A troubled US Air Marshal who is on board a small transatlantic aircraft with 146 passengers, begins to receive text messages, evidently from someone on board the flight, telling him that unless $150,000,000 are transferred to a named bank account, the plane will be blown up. How will he identify the hijacker, or hijackers, and save the passengers?
||The air marshall drinks a bit, but gets himself together and makes the effort to solve the riddle. He fights with likely suspects and gets one or two passengers to help him. There is an implied sex act, I think, if not two people were getting very friendly under a blanket. No nudity or drug taking.
||This – sort of – action movie was quite well liked by everybody and made a bit of money, although (without wanting to reveal the climax) when the events portrayed seem to be impossible, only too often they actually are impossible and the denouement is a let down. You’d have to watch this to find out how it goes. It is just about worth the effort.
