Storyline

When the terrorists Abdul Rafai and Mustafa hijack a Boeing 707 in Athenas with 144 passengers and crew, they use a grenade to force Captain Campbell to fly to Beirut, Lebanon, instead of to Rome and New York. Meanwhile the Delta Force commanded by Colonel Nick Alexander and Major McCoy are assigned to resolve the situation. Abdul and Mustafa separate the Jewish and Marine passengers and they are transported to Beirut, while twelve other terrorists embark on board. Then they fly to Algiers, where the women and children are released. McCoy and the Delta Force team are prepared to attack the plane when Alexander learns that there are now fourteen terrorists on board and not only two, and he aborts the mission. Abdul kills a Marine and returns to Beirut with the male passengers on board. Now the Delta Force needs to act in two locations crowded of terrorists to release the hostages. Will they succeed?

Trivia

The Boeing 707 featured in the film was an early production model, ordered by Cubana (which never took ownership) but delivered new as a 707-139 to Western Airlines on May 13, 1960. It was then sold in 1964 to Pan Am, which operated it for several years, before leasing it to several other carriers, including: Aer Lingus, British Cal., El Al, and many others. It was the 108th 707 off the line, with serial number 17903. In 1979, British Caledonian leased it, when the DC-10s were grounded after the AA 191 accident. Its last service was in 1986 to Aerocar Aviation, whose livery appears on the aircraft in the film. It was eventually scrapped in Marana, after more than thirty years of service, with more than a dozen airlines, mostly in the Middle East. See more »

Goofs

On the scene where Norris mets the convoy of terrorists (holding the main hostages), he blows up the first car in the convoy and then rides past the convoy and skids to face the end of the convoy. Before he skids you can clearly see tyre marks on the roads from when this has been attempted more than once. See more »

Norris' best Golan-Globus effort
30 May 2004 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Lee Marvin was already very ill when he appeared in this movie, and his grave condition sometimes shows onscreen. Still, he's able to give it all that he's got like in his previous films, and it's nice seeing that he went down still a tough guy. The rest of the movie proves to be just as surprisingly enjoyable. It does go on too long (125 minutes!), and there is not as much action as you may be expecting. But the drama portion of the movie proves to be compelling, and the few action scenes there are turn out to be exceedingly well done. Certainly no masterpiece, but it is entertaining. Fans of Norris and/or Marvin, however, should be warned that the two of them don't appear in as much of the movie as they may be expecting.
