Cheesy, campy return to the 'Doomed Flight' genre...
Wesley Snipes is the only fun there is about this movie and he really
isn't that fun in this movie! He stars as former air security rep. John
Cutter, Cutter lost in wife in a tragic holdup and he blames himself
wholly because of it. Virtual Unknown at the time Elizabeth Hurley
plays a crooked stewardess, the villain Rane is cool, a little too
mysterious but cool. Everything in this movie is rushed along in a
quick hour and twenty minutes pretty well so there really is no time to
go to the bathroom or get popcorn while its going (not that you'll miss
much). Overall not a horrible movie but still is cheesy and campy in
some spots (almost like this movie should have been on TV instead). The
ending is silly and a lot of the action in this film depends on your
ability to disassociate yourself with reality and let the campiness do

An action classic, one of the best Die Hard clones
This is a very entertaining action film and Wesley Snipes is an
excellent action hero. This movie isn't exactly original, but it does
exactly what it was meant to do. It was clearly influenced by Die Hard,
but along with Under Siege it's the best of the Die Hard influenced
films of the 90's. This really established Snipes as an action star and
like the Die Hard movies the villain is a terrorist. Bruce Payne does
an excellent job as the terrorist Charles Rane and Snipes plays former
cop John Cutter.
The movie begins with the cops arresting Charles Rane. John Cutter's
wife had been killed during a robbery when he was a cop so now he works
training security how to deal with terrorists. Cutter's friend Sly
Delvecchio(Tom Sizemore) gets him a job as vice-president
anti-terrorism unit at Atlantic International Airlines. He starts his
new job on a plane to Los Angeles that Charles Rane happens to be
boarding in FBI custody on his way to his trial in Los Angeles. Also on
board is a flight attendant Marti Slayton who Cutter had taught earlier
in the film. They, however did not see eye to eye then. The title of
the film comes from the fact that Cutter was passenger 57 during the
Marti's head count.
With the help of a flight attendant Sabrina Ritchie who shoots both FBI
officers, Rane escapes. Ritchie is played by Elizabeth Hurley. Ranes
and Ritchie are joined by several other henchmen who take control of
the flight. Cutter initiates a fuel dump which forces the plane to land
and he escapes, but Marti is captured. Rane agrees to release half the
hostages in exchange for fuel and takeoff clearance. Rane and a couple
of his men escape as the passengers are being let off the flight.
Cutter chases Rane and captures him, but Rane tells police that his men
aboard the plane will kill hostages if he's not returned to the plane.
Rane is aloud back on the plane, but Cutter also sneaks on the plane as
it's taking off. This sets up some more great action sequences and a
terrific ending. Cutter kicks Rane out of the plane to kill him, and
throughout the movie there's a ton of great fight scenes. Snipes is the
quintessential action hero, good one-liners, great during the fight
scenes, imposing physique and charismatic. Marti obviously is also
Cutter's love interest and the movie ends with them walking away. Tom
Sizemore does a good job in a supporting role and Bruce Payne does an
excellent job as well.
Fans of the Die Hard films and Under Siege will probably like this.
"Die Hard on a Plane" is a success!.
