Looking for excitement? You've made the right decision! Join Kurt Russell, Steven Seagal, Halle Berry, John Leguizamo and others in a heroic ensemble on board for first class thrills.
The mission: board a hijacked 747 in mid-air. Avoid detection. Locate and disable a hair-triggered nerve-toxin bomb that could wipe out the U.S. Eastern 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 US military blasts the airliner out of the sky.
'I hope there's a good movie on this flight,' an anti-terrorist operative quips. As it turns out, there's a great one: Executive Decision!

A satisfying airplane action drama starring Kurt Russell, and that is particularly relevant in this present day and age. It is a successful blend of <i>The High and the Mighty,</i> and <i> Air-Force One.</i> In other words, it tells of the potential disaster aboard a jumbo passenger jet, with the added drama of a terrorist hijack situation to cope with as well! Dr David Grant (Kurt Russell), a United States Naval Academy graduate and now a consultant for the U.S. Army's intelligence community, is informed that the world's most feared terrorist, El Sayed Jaffa (Andreas Katsulas), has been taken into custody. Shortly after, Oceanic Airlines Flight 343 – a Boeing 747-200 – leaves Athens, bound for Washington, D.C. It is hijacked by Jaffa's Lieutenant, Nagi Hassan (David Suchet) and a number of Jaffa's men. The passengers and crew are informed that there is a nerve-gas bomb on board the plane. What they are <i>not</i> told is that there is a terrorist “mole” amongst the passengers themselves! Meanwhile, back at the Pentagon, Lieutenant Colonel Austin Travis (Steven Seagal) of the U.S. Army Special Services is trying to figure out a solution to the problem. Halle Berry as Jean, the plane’s brave flight attendant, stands out on the acting performance ratings, as does Ray Baker, in the relatively small part as the captain of the 747. The successful background music is by Jerry Goldsmith, who had previously scored <i>Air-Force One.</i>
