Ryan Weaver romances beautiful women before he kills them. Ryan is arrested, convicted, and is part of a Christmas Eve transfer of prisoners on a transcontinental 747 commercial flight. Other airlines at JFK may have holiday passengers waiting on stand-by, but this jumbo jet takes off with a lot of empty seats. Ryan and another prisoner overpower and kill their guards. The few civilian passengers

Even if the movie is from 1997 the style, shooting, the camera and story-construction is very similar to the typical late 80' and eary 90' movies.

The screenwriter uses this story-mechanism but modifies it with a little modification (you will see it after 30 miniutes).

The movie wants to be like this style of movies. And the movie is like this. But is this a good movie style in 2013?

I don't think so, but for me was it fun and i enjoyed the ride :)

btw. In this movie Ray Liota proofs that he can be a real good actor. In every second of the movie you can see that he had fun playing his role of the mysterious prisoner.

In the end 6/10
