Did You Know?
One of the earliest film roles for Elizabeth Hurley.
When Ranes jumps out the window in the beginning of the movie, the customer sitting at the table he jumps on lands on top of Ranes when he hits the ground. The shot cuts away and when it cuts back Ranes is on top of the café customer, and he gets up and runs away.
We were told to head back.
Good solid action flick. A must for Snipes fans.
Passenger 57 is an enjoyable and rather underrated action film.
Although there is not too much of a storyline, the slick action scenes
combined with some very good performances from Wesley Snipes and Bruce
Payne kept me entertained from start to finish.
While Passenger 57 offers nothing really new to the action genre, it
does offer plenty of fast paced chaos and explosions and combined with
some entertaining hand-to-hand combat skills by Snipes, it is certainly
better than a lot of other standard action fares out there.
Snipes gives a very good performance as the lead and Bruce Payne is
brilliant as the mentally unstable villain. The other cast are somewhat
overshadowed by Snipes and Payne, but do an adequate enough job.
Overall I was very pleased by Passenger 57, so much so that it proudly
belongs in my DVD collection. A very good choice for action fans and a
must for Snipes fans. 8/10.
