They don't negotiate with terrorists... they blow them away!
A 707 aircraft jetliner on its way from Athens to Rome and then to New York City is hijacked by Lebanese terrorists. The terrorists demand that the pilot take them to Beirut. What the terrorists don't realize is that an elite team of commandoes led by Major McCoy (Norris) and by Colonel Alexander (Marvin) has been called into service to eliminate all terrorists on the jetliner.

A mediocre action movie at best, with unbearable propaganda for the US army (at one time, they actual say something like "let's fly to Israel, our only friends in the middle east" (!)).

There is no denying that this is an awful film, that works more like an 80s propaganda video for American military and contains simplistic Middle Eastern politics, the worst stereotypes possible and gung-ho patriotism that you would come to expect from of a film like this. The film gets much sillier and cheesier, and perversely much better as a result, towards the end, but this is at best a guilty pleasure for an audience brought up on a slew of 80s action films in their youth. It does have a cheesy score that is very difficult to get out of your head though.
