If you needed someone to save you from a hijacked airplane, I guess former UFC camp Randy Couture and “Prison Break’s” Dominic Purcell ain’t such a bad option. The duo take on “Lights Out’s” Holt McCallany in the new “Die Hard on a Plane” flick “Hijacked”. (Curious that Holt McCallany is introduced as a castmember of “Fight Club”, a film from 13 years ago where his character didn’t even have a name, and not from “Lights Out”, a TV series from less than a year ago where he was the star.) Anyways, it’s “Die Hard in an Airplane on Speed”. Or some such. Looks mildly diverting, I suppose.
Special Agent Ross’s (Couture) plans to reconcile with his ex-fiancé are ruined when she boards a private jet that is targeted by hijackers working for the same crime lord he is chasing. With no time to inform his team, Ross wriggles his way aboard the aircraft and risks it all to save the love of his life.
“Hijacked” stars Couture, Purcell and his wicked ‘stache, along with Tiffany Dupont, Holt McCallany, Craig Fairbrass and Vinnie Jones.
