It finally gives us what Hollywood has been threatening for years, the movie nobody was waiting for: Airport '96.

Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily

A nerve-racking thriller that's more topical today than it was in 1996.

| Original Score: 4/5

Take a late-blooming action star and an action hero whose career is in a downslide, and you get an action film seriously lacking in... action.

Laughably, inexcusably, abjectly awful. How can I even count the ways?

Satisfying junk food.

Juicy Cerebellum

Seagal's best movie - due largely in part to the fact that he's barely in it.

| Original Score: 3/5

Although the formula may be old, it is expertly handled.

Flipside Movie Emporium

A dishearteningly jingoistic thriller, saved by sharp action scenes and a few decent surprises.

| Original Score: 3/5

Russell plays this role very well, relying more on his intellectual image than muscles in the same manner as his character who uses more brain and less physical power to achieve his task.

Adrenalin-pumping political thriller that doesn't let up from start to finish.

Entertaining b-level actioner that succeeds by the way it utilizes Seagal.

Boxoffice Magazine

The great thing about the movie is that, although it's ludicrously predictable along the lines of every 'Die Hard on a [name your vehicle],' the filmmakers still manage to wring every scene for the most thrills possible.

It seems to bring up more questions than could possibly be answered in a two-hour movie, but all of the pieces start to fall into place as the movie picks up speed.

If you go to Executive Decision, sit back and try to enjoy the explosions and high-tech gadgetry. But more importantly, try to get there late.

Stuart Baird's direction is so sluggish and Jim and John Thomas' script so padded that Executive Decision has no build.

A movie for people who are sophisticated enough to know how shameless the film is, but fun-loving enough to enjoy its excesses and manic zeal.

For uncomplicated excitement, the film offers a solid one-hundred thirty minutes.

There's nothing like a protracted action drama in which anti-terrorist commandos slink around the bowels of an airborne 747 and talk about what they hope to accomplish upstairs in the final shootout.
