Our Score
Middle-Eastern terrorists menace a planeload of Hollywood has-beens in an exploitative, revisionist version of the actual 1985 skyjacking of a TWA flight in Athens. The surprisingly accurate first half supplies some swift-paced tension before low-rent action hero Chuck Norris arrives on the scene, riding a rocket-armed motorcycle and destroying all credibility along with the baddies. Despite the abrupt change from jet-powered realism to cartoon wish-fulfilment, the constant catalogue of cheap thrills keeps boredom at bay.


Terrorists take over a charter flight bound for Athens, and are prepared to go to any lengths to ensure their demands are met. However, an elite squad of commandos has snuck on board to wipe out the hijackers before any more passengers are killed. Action adventure, starring Chuck Norris, Lee Marvin, Martin Balsam and Shelley Winters.
