      Passenger 57 is an action flick starring Wesley Snipes and Bruce Payne released back in 1992 when audiences could tolerate terrorists and airline hijackers - unlike the post 9/11 world we live in today.

      So anyway, Wesley Snipes plays John Cutter the good guy - a former cop turned airline security specialist with an “I don’t give a sXXX”

      know you can’t board the plane from the landing gear. You also can’t walk around in the cargo area because the containers are locked down within 1 inch of each other. Shooting a gun on an airplane is also about the dumbest thing you can do - thankfully the didn’t hit any fuel or hydraulic lines
      while they were in flight.

      Anyways, all around, the flick isn’t bad - Bruce Payne plays an excellent bad guy and keeps the suspense going. Snipes is a little annoying but gets the job done. I recommend this for anyone looking to stay home on a friday night and relive the early 90’s Die Hard genre.
