One of the better or the BEST movies about hi-jacking a (military) cargo plane
I totally agree with the review by prestonjobe9 July 2017:
"Long time fan of this movie. Yes, there are no less than a thousand mistakes and impossibilities here, but if you take this movie for what it is you'll love it. I've watched it several times over the years and I always laugh a little, but I love it. Story is filled with holes, but I just love it for some reason."
I, too, after the 1st viewing of this movie when it's released, it never faded in my memory since then. Now it's year 2019, after watched the 3rd times so many years later, I still consider it one of the best hijack thrillers. The movie was released in 1992, but it's way before Hollywood's obsession of CGI computerized
graphics. Nowadays, about 99% of the movies out of Hollywood were with CGI effect or with the actors acting in front of a green screen and I'm tired of it. Every movie now looks like a video game with hollow and senseless scenarios and plot. But this movie is quite different in many ways.
After so many years, the major pilot played by Elizabeth Morehead was still so vividly remembered. I almost fell in love with this cute and pretty young lady who also showed lot of potential acting talent. But when I tried to get more familiar with her, her activities only continued to 2013, since then she just disappeared and off the screen. I really like to know her newer information.
Andrew Divoff is another actor that I also have strong impression of his role in this movie. My memory about him is his right eyebrow, there's some of it grew wild at the end of it with a sudden upward angle. He should trim it to look more appealing, his heavily acned face is another factor that I remembered him. I'm glad that he is still active in recent years.
Andrew Divoff almost played bad guy roles all the time, but he's a very good actor.
Again, I'd like to iterate my love of this movie; a timeless one even after so many years, still a great fun to watch again.
