A 747 traveling from Athens to Washington DC is hijacked by a group of terrorists. They claim it's to force the government to release their leader, but covert intelligence man David Grant doesn't believe it. He tries to persuade the authorities to keep the plane out of US airspace while a rescue mission is put together. This mission involves the use of a high tech plane specifically designed for mid-air crew transfers. With Grant, they make it aboard the 747 only to find that they must overpower the terrorists and disable a bomb with enough nerve gas to knock out all of Washington DC below.
Fasten your seat belts. Terrorists hijack a 747 inbound to Washington D.C., demanding the the release of their imprisoned leader. Intelligence expert David Grant (Kurt Russell) suspects another reason and he is soon the reluctant member of a special assault team that is assigned to intercept the plane and hijackers.. Executive Decision Wiki
This movie has one moment of satisfaction - the moment that we say farewell to Segal. So many people can't stand the guy that when the moment came, the theater audience did not gasp. They actually applauded!
Pretty good for it’s age, it still holds up for a thrill. Forgot Marla Maples aka. Former Mrs. Trump was in it and lousy small acting bit. No wonder she’s no career lol 😂. Overall worth seeing. 🛩✈️✈️✈️
Executive Decision is a cross between terrible writing, cheesy acting, and a steaming pile of manure.
Wingnut is indeed a moron; this movie is superb! Excellent suspense throughout the movie, plot twists right where they should be, and little surprises and discoveries all the way through.
Executive Decision is a crossover with Mission Impossible, The Rock, and Air Force One. Though this isn't a shoot 'em up, it's suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat! A must see thriller with an excellent cast!
Its an older movie meaning that the special effects arent as great as they are in modern times. In addition, the plot line in the movie isnt bad either, it details a terrorist threat of an airplane hijacking to destroy the east coast of the united states.Its ironic that this movie was made in '97 but 9/11 didnt occur until '01; which makes this movie unique
This is an ok Movie, but killing off Steven Seagal in the movie was unessessary because it would have been better if he was still alive while teaming up with Kurt Russell trying to save the hostages.
This movie was alright but needed more action in it, all they did was crawl around in the crawl spaces and look at the terrorists and what they were doing the whole movie then finally ended with a ok ending.
Kurt Russell stars in this entertaining action flick, which keeps you glued to it's narrative. Even the WORST ACTOR ON EARTH, Steven Sagal, is good in it. This due to the fact he dies early in the piece and doesn't show the full extent of (or should I say the LACK OF) his acting ability.
