One of the best if not the best movie starring Seagal. Funnily enough he dies 20 minutes into the movie which actually does the movie some good. I doubt it'd have been as interesting and suspenseful if Seagal was the lead. Kurt Russell does a good job. The movie is mostly generic, but made with excellent suspense, great moments and nice action. Interestingly, there are barely shot-outs or fights, yet the movie seems so action-packed. That's what I call a good directing job.

This and the Fugitive are probably the two most watchable films for me whenever its on TBS or TNT. This is not only a very well made action film, it takes its time setting up these action scenes with intense thrilling moments. Kurt leads a very well established character cast. Not only to boot, its Steven Segal's best movie of all time. His demise was so unexpected and brilliant that it gave the film a very intense blow in the beginning (Good in my opinion, another Segal terrorist film would have probably been boring) Kurt takes control and is an awesome presence in any film, a great couple of years for him certainly.

Solid A

This and Air Force One are probably the two best aerial thrillers ever made.

It's a good film, but really nothing special.

I remember seeing this as a kid and simply not being able to believe that Seagal was dead.

Me too. Up until the final ten minutes or so, while asking myself, how the hell he could survive this.

Kind of funny really, because that movie death sort of signalled his career death (at least as far theatrical releases went).
