The acting was good all-round, I felt it was a little weak at the start but once it got to the breakout it improved a lot, probably due to the performance by Antonio Sabato Jr. who was the bad guy.
The script was fine, although I did laugh at a few lines, like when the pilot's girlfriend is visited by the police she refers to them as "you guys" which just seemed funny because she was too relaxed when her boyfriend was in trouble.
My main criticism of this movie would be that some plot twists were not very believable and seemed to be just an excuse for something exciting to happen.
