    Kurt Russell, Steven Seagal, Halle Berry, John Leguizamo and others in a heroic ensemble are on board for first class thrills. The mission: board a hijacked 747 in mid-air. Avoid detection.

Do it all without air-to-ground radio. And do it before an increasingly jittery U.S. military blasts the airliner out of the sky. “I hope there’s a good movie on this flight,” an anti-terrorist operative quips. As it turns out, there’s a great one: Executive Decision!
