Classic Trailer: Passenger 57 (1992)


Plot: John Cutter (Wesley Snipes) is a former policeman flying to Los Angeles to start his new job working for the anti-terrorism unit of a major airline.

However, apprehended terrorist Charles Rane (Bruce Payne) is on the flight, too, being transported by the FBI. After Rane’s accomplices kill the FBI agents and free him, Cutter realizes the entire flight is in danger.

With the help of flight attendant Marti Slayton (Alex Datcher), Cutter tries to capture Rane and free the passengers.



This movie was cheesy even back in 1992 but it always has a place in my heart mostly due to the quotable script with such lines as “Always bet on black!” and more.

Bruce Payne was hilariously over the top and deliberate with every line but the banter between he and Snipes is awesome.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
