If there were an Oscar for typecasting, this film would have won easily: Wesley Snipes is John Cutter, the special-ops trained, African American ex-supercop who oozes competence, honesty, ethics, and just about every other characteristic that certain members of the white audience think are exclusive to their race. Facilitating the anti-KKK crusade is sheriff Biggs (Ernie Lively), a Dr. McCoy clone in looks and demeanor who is slightly distrusting of the black Cutter, enough to hint at racism, but not so much that Biggs couldn't redeem himself by reminding his two hick deputies to shoot him if they have to, but only "in the leg" because "he might be telling the truth." That Cutter could call Sly Delvecchio (Tom Sizemore in his less controversial days) from the plane, but Biggs couldn't call him from the airport, drives home once again the message Snipes has been exploiting since White Men Can't Jump. The terrorists who seize the plane appear to have been transported from Die Hard, down to Eurotrash psychopath Charles Rane (Bruce Payne), played in stereotypical fashion by the actor.
We get the normal blend of suspense, thrills, action, and just enough pauses for witty dialogue between hero and villain. We get Robert Hooks as yet another child of affirmative action, the black FBI agent, playing more or less the same character he's played in dozens of films. Elizabeth Hurley as the female terrorist seems a bit out of place, but her main function was as eye candy, so she has a neutral impact. Rounting out the stereotypes are Alex Datcher as the sexy, independent black flight attendant Marti, and love interest for Snipes, as well as reminder of his late wife, and the late Duchess Tomasello as the painfully stereotypical Mrs. Edwards, an elderly, good-hearted, clueless lady who hints at early stage Alzheimer's.
The plot? A plane gets hijacked, with Snipes, the airline's new head of security, on board. He dodges the initial hijacking, and spends the rest of the film taking on the bad guys. This is Die Hard in the air, and it's just about every action and airline film ever made. It's almost a Blackspoitation flick, even though the role of cutter was originally offered to Stallone (the second time he was replaced by an African-American; the first was Beverly Hills Cop). The ending? You'll have to guess.
This is not really that good of a film, but it's a lot easier to watch than it should be. I still watch it from time to time, though usually only in parts. I first have to say that I have seen this movie twice that I know of. Once when it came out in 1992 and found it forgettable. I had not thought about it for several years but decided to DVR it and give it a go, one more time. Well the first thing I have to say about the show is that I found it very obvious as to the racist nature of a lot of the dialog in the movie. Maybe a sign of the times back then, but all of the caucasian people in the movie were either evil or shown as slack jaw idiots. All of the "always bet on black" type of sayings were continuous though the movie. It really took away from the action. You have to say that Wesley Snipes is pretty awesome as an action hero. His martial arts skills come across well on screen. Anyway, I don't review a lot of films but after watching this one I had to say what I felt.
