Kurt Russell, Steven Seagal, Halle Berry, John Leguizamo and others in a heroic ensemble deliver first-class thrills in a taut thriller from producer Joel Silver (The Matrix) and director Stuart Baird (U.S. Marshals). The mission: board a hijacked 747 in midair. Avoid detection. Loacte and disable a hair-triggered nerve-toxin bomb that could wipe out the Easter Seaboard. Execute a split-second attack that overwhelms the terrorists and safeguards the passengers. Do it all without air-to-ground radio. And do it before an increasingly jittery U.S. military blasts the airliner out of the sky.
- Kurt Russell
Despite Steven Seagal's imposing presence in this enjoyable thriller, Kurt Russell turns out to be the real star as an American intelligence expert who finds himself leading a strike force against Islamic terrorists who have seized in-flight control of a 747 jetliner with 400 passengers. It's not all that different from Air Force One, but the formula story perks right along with considerable suspense as Russell's cohorts (Oliver Platt, Joe Morton) try to defuse a chemical bomb that could wipe out (you guessed it) the entire Eastern seaboard. John Leguizamo plays one of the U.S. commandos attempting to stop the violent hijackers, and Halle Berry costars as a flight attendant who risks her life to assist Russell's rescue team. As action movies go, Executive Decision marked an impressive directorial debut for veteran film editor Stuart Baird. –Jeff Shannon
