Passenger 57 | 1992 | R | - 2.6.7

A "Die Hard" imitation taking place inside a plane, where there aren't that many places to go. With Wesley Snipes.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - There is an unpleasant flirtation with a terrorist and a flight attendant, using a gun to touch her clothed bosom. A man is shown bare chested while meditating and working-out.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A doctor's throat is slit with a scalpel. A man is hit by a car and then pummeled with water cooler refill jugs. A man is kicked in the groin. A lawyer is punched about by his client who insists he's not insane. Lots and lots of shooting. Two men a re shot in the head, and left for us to see from scene to scene. Punching with the butt of a gun. A bad guy gets beaten up and ends up with his head in the toilet. Another man is shot in the head. A knife fight. Broken arms, kicking in the head. Bloody heads. A man is kicked out of a moving plane (while on the ground), another is kicked out while in the air. Two sheriff's deputies are beaten till bloody. A guy is kicked off a ferris wheel. Threats of mutilation. Trucks blow up at the airport. A man is squashed by a luggage container, we just hear him groan.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
