3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable
A direct rip off of Diehard, as was the trend in the 1990's action movie genre, this is an OK thriller.

Directed by Kevin Hooks who has made low budget action thrillers such as Fled (starring Stephen Baldwin) and Black Dog run (Starring Patrick Swayze), there is a little bit of style, some good stunts, and the occasional bit of humour.

Wesley Snipes...

I don't think there is that much to say about this purchase other than it was timely, well packaged and reasonably priced.
Hope that helps.

4.0 out of 5 stars A kicker of a hijacking action movie, 5 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passenger 57 [1993] [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Wesley Snipes is perfectly cast in this as a reluctant security consultant with lethal skills who finds himself trapped on a hijacked plane when Bruce Payne's vicious terrorist breaks free and takes the aircraft as his own. Payne is faintly expressionless throughout the film (is it a deliberate riff on his character's addiction to plastic surgery?) but still chillingly brutal. Elizabeth Hurley plays it with delicious revelry in her evil character. The script is also surprisingly punchy and aggressive for a 15 rated film and was considered very controversial during the early 90's 'violence in cinema' debate. The match of wits between Snipes and Payne is perfectly balanced, and the stunts are great fun. While this is pure action cinema - violent, over the top and stretches belief - it's a hugely fun ride for its running time. It also has several real stand out moments: "I say again - who's in charge?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it but how is this like Die Hard ?, 17 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passenger 57 [1993] [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Okay in the above reviews more than one of them try to say this is a Die Hard clone & I ask did you see the same movie I did as should you have then apart from them being at an airport at some point &involving a plane that is about where the simliaraties end.
One is a NY Cop & the other is a High Security agent who has left to become an adviser in Security with an Airport being his main client.
Wesley Snipes could kick John McClane's ass twice everyday including Sunday as the whole thing is this is a part martial arts movie & Snipes is regarded as a very serious martial artist (look at Blade) so if you have not seen t then give it a chance also that absolute perfection called Elizabeth Hurley this was her first big main Hollywood movie & I think she did it well.
Give it a chance as it is very enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's passable., 10 Mar 2011

This review is from: Passenger 57 [1993] [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Passenger 57 came out shortly after Die Hard 1&2 so it will always be compared to those like many other imitators have been and will continue to be. Passenger 57 also helped to launch the film careers of some of the actors in the film, most notably Wesley Snipes and Elizabeth Hurley. The plot is about a Bordering on retirement Airline Security Chief (Snipes) who has one last job to do before he leaves. This job requires him to help escort one of the world's most dangerous terrorist's from one state to another on a jet full of innocent passengers (your guess is as good as mine there). Naturally it goes awry when the plane is hijacked during flight and it is up to Snipes's character to save the day.

The film does have it's flaws, some of them big gaping ones (many of which seem to be mentioned in other reviews on here) and the background of the terrorist ringleader (played by Bruce Payne) is very deep and get's thrown at the viewer very quickly, feeling a little slapdash. Despite all this though the film is exciting once it gets going and not long.

If your bored on an afternoon it's worth at least a watch.
