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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

A dishearteningly jingoistic thriller, saved by sharp action scenes and a few decent surprises.
| Original Score: 3/5

It doesn't always work, but there's something inspiring about Baird's unwillingness to follow the usual formula.
