So bad that its good? Maybe.,
This review is from: Passenger 57  [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
