Executive Decision is a great Action, Adventure, Thriller that most people have never seen or overlooked. The movie is about terrorists who take over a 747 that is traveling from Athens to Washington, D.C. In order to control the terrorists, the US Military decides to attach to the bottom of the plane, allowing a team of experts to regain control of the airplane. After having issues boarding the plane mid-flight and discovering an onboard nerve gas bomb, the team signed up more than they can handle.
In my mind whenever I hear this movie, I compare it instantly to the Harrison Ford classic Air Force One, that came out a year later than this movie. Most people have probably seen Air Force One, so let me tell you.... these movies are no comparison. Executive Decision blows it out of the water.
This thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat as you worry about the passengers, the hidden team, and the issues surrounding the US government. If you are in the mood for an action movie or want to see Air Force One again, save it and rent this one instead.
