    Synopsis


    Executive Decision
    In this action thriller, a group of Islamic terrorists, led by Nagi Hassan (David Suchet), highjacks a 747 jetliner with 400 passengers aboard, but Lt. Col. Austin Travis (Steven Seagal), a United States intelligence agent, is convinced that this isn't an ordinary case of air piracy. His suspicions are soon confirmed; Hassan's men have obtained a large cache of stolen Soviet nerve gas, and they are using the 747 to smuggle the deadly gas into the United States, where they intend to use it to wipe out Washington D.C. and possibly the entire East Coast. As the jet approaches the U. S., engineer Dennis Cahill (Oliver Platt) designs a plan in which a military plane will be able to transfer U.S. soldiers onto the 747 and regain control of the plane and its deadly cargo. However, when Travis dies in the course of the mission, intelligence agent Dr. David Grant (Kurt Russell) is forced to take his place alongside explosives expert Cappy (Joe Morton), commando Rat (John Leguizamo), and stewardess-turned-anti-terrorist Jean (Halle Berry). Executive Decision was the first directorial assignment for veteran film editor Stuart Baird; he cut the film as well. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Hijacked airliner carries nerve gas

      Posted

      Kurt Russell stars as a civilian terrorist expert who accompanies US special forces led by Steven Seagal in a modified F-117 stealth jet. They must link up with an airliner hijacked by Arab terrorists who plan to disperse nerve gas on the US and prevent the nerve gas from being dispersed on the US. This is very good political thriller/action movie with Russell carrying the movie after Seagal is surprisingly killed off early in the movie (supposedly after a dispute with the producers). Halle Berry is very good as a stewardess who helps Russell and the commandos in their effort to stop the terrorists before they reach US airspace. This movie was overshadowed by Harrison Ford's AIR FORCE ONE which premiered a year later, but it has its own share of plot twists and action with Kurt Russell shining in the role of the surprising hero.

      F117A with room for passengers A good movie although fantasy that a F117A can carry passengers. Good audio and video quality but outside flying shots had orange color casts. The movie comes in at just over 2 hours. Steven Seagal has a bit part although listed second in the credits and it never hurts to have Halle Berry to look at. I believe they used him to help sell the movie. The only extra is a 2:20 trailer of the movie, so this is a bare bones edition and that brought down the overall rating for me.

      I remember when this movie first came out... It was an interesting idea to see stealth fighters used in a rescue and Kurt Russell play the role of an unwitting hero. It made you feel like, "Hey, if I were in that situation, I'd be totally lost, too, until I found my groove..." If you're looking for a movie with super-believable credulity, this ain't it, but it's still a great watch.

      I have always enjoyed this movie. Great acting & plot, lots of action and suspense, one of Kurt Russell's best movies. When i played this movie on my bluray player, i was surprised of how sharp and detailed the picture quality is as well as the sound. My only problem with this bluray version is that Warner Bros. edited this film.

      This is your typical Hijack movie, very good acting., Kurt Russell< the lovely Halley Barry, Has several plot lines from disarming a bomb to landing a damaged jet. It shows not all hero's are in uniform.

      Hi, this is a great movie. I saw it when it first came out in the theaters, and this is the kind of movie that keeps you excited. The acting is good, the jokes are funny, and you can watch it more than once.
