Passeger 57 was made in the wake of the successful Die Hard. This film is made with Die Hard 1 and 2 in mind. It also resembles other films which came later including Executive Decision, Con Air and Air Force One. All of these films have their good points and bad. Passenger 57 certainly does.
Passenger 57 good points- 1. Well staged action. 2.Wesley Snipes on good form. 3. A good Stanley Clarke music score 4. An early Liz Hurley role(playing a bad girl Xenia Onatop type).
Passenger 57 bad points 1. Between the action some awful cliche scenes. 2. Lots of cliches. 3. Tom sizemores in it. 4. Tom sizemores pointless part. 4. Boring cliche love interest.
Passenger 57 has dated bad. Its a film I remember enjoying a decade or so ago but now after watching it again I can't help but feel it's a bad unoriginal movie with no artistic merit. But then maybe with the exciting action scenes, charicature baddies and Wesley Snipes kicking butt, the film isn't so bad. Maybe.

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 plays John Cutter, a security expert caught on board a plane with terrorists taking over.

Bruce Payne plays the nasty British (Alan Rickman syle)villain with great witty lines as the lead terrorist, and is very good, sadly his career has not lead to bigger or better things.

Snipes whilst handling the action scenes well, does perhaps not deliver his lines with enough humour, like Bruce Willis did in Die Hard, or some of the action heroes in other Diehard clones.

The plot lacks a serious amount of logic, but that said the film is short in it's running time, quite pacy, delivers good fight scenes, a few gun shoot outs and a good explosion scene, so as an action film it delivers the goods, although the music score and fashion have dated it a bit.

Supporting cast includes Tom Sizemore and Elezebeth Hurly, both in early roles.

Overall a mixed bag, not quite great film making, not quite bad enough to be a 'B' movie, but not as good as other terrorist take over movies that were produced in the 90's, lacking the smart plotting of some of them, but still worth a watch if nothing else to do.

I like this movie from when it was first released. If I just want to watch a light weight movie to relax it is one of the movies I watch. Okay acting and the story a little far fetch but basically a take your mind of your troubles type of movie.

This was an old school film that I hadn't seen for a good few years, but I still had images and dialogue in my mind. Therefore I had to buy and watch this again. This truely is, as several critics usually say, a Saturday evening popcorn movie that's entertaining and fun.

The very big jet passenger plane has been hijacked. It lands on a very small airfield. Dead bodies are being dropped from the front door of the plane onto the tarmac. People are being executed........

The local rotund police chief turns from the horrifying scene and in a low growl, reminiscent of a scene from the Dukes of Hazzard, drawls into the camera - `Martha, make me one of your special coffees, it's gonna be a long day'.

Watching this film is like religion. You literally have to suspend your disbelief. All through it you are left wondering 'why?'. Why, for example, when the plane lands and is threatened with imminent total destruction, do the police authorities not immediately evacuate the local fair ground which, surprisingly, is less than 100m metres from the plane. The happy children play on, totally oblivious to the unfolding danger that they are in. They only become aware of the danger when the police are running through the fairground and the baddies are shooting everybody.

So it's fair to say that this is a bona fide, 100%, turkey on every level. Only watch it to marvel at the crassness of it, and on that level it's absolutely hilarious.

John Cutter is a security expert, who is presently still mourning the death of his wife.

His friend, who works for an airline, offers him the job of chief of security, which he accepts.

He is then being flown to L.A. for the company's annual meeting, where he will be introduced as the new Chief of Security. But unfortunately for him, Charles Rane, a stoic and deranged terrorist, who was caught by the FBI and is also being flown to L.A. is on the plane.

And Rane's people are on board, who then takeover the plane but Cutter throws a monkey wrench into his plans....

Die hard on a plane with Wesley Snipes and a guy who is doing Alan Rickman on the cheap. The film lasts for about eighty minutes, and it's just silly dumb fun all the way through.

Payne is deliciously over the top as Rane, with lines such as 'There will be no pain' and a hatred for his father, he is the epitome of direct to video (at the time) bad guys getting upgraded to the big screen.

Between 1991 and 1994 and thanks to Die Hard, the majority of big screen bad guys were Brits, as our accent is just so evil.

Snipes is good, it's his best role as a good guy and he never really bettered this in a leading role (Blade doesn't count in my opinion)and commands the screen whenever he is on it.

Hurley is there for eye candy and is worthless, and Tom Sizemore is there for goodness knows what reason.

It's a fun Die Hard rip off that never out stays its welcome, and is as dated ad Snipes silly jeans.

Great fun.
