Surprisingly good. It’s about as good as a cheap action movie could be. In other words, pretty good for a movie with a half-ass story that the writiers obviously spent no more than 5 minutes thinking up. Much better than its aerial counterpart, Passenger 57.

It was very disheartening seeing Segal die so soon into the movie. As much as I hate the guy as an actor, I think it was a mistake casting a guy like him (and bringing such expectations into the film) when he dies 10 minutes into the action. That Halle Berry baseball joke at the end was borderline corny, but it was OK.
