If you weren't afraid of flying before, you will be now.
On a flight transporting dangerous convicts, murderer Ryan Weaver manages to break free and cause complete chaos throughout the plane. As various people on board fall victim to Weaver, it is ultimately down to flight attendant Teri Halloran to keep the aircraft from crashing, with on-ground support from an air traffic controller. While Halloran struggles to pilot the plane, Weaver continues to terrorize the surviving members of the crew.

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
