La Weekend July 2017 – 3

Oh dear it was a bit of a crappy movie weekend, I had a lot of new stuff to see but I panned most it all for crappy stuff as I spent most of the weekend painting and being a general douchbag. So after watching hours of rubbish on YouTube I eventually got around to some TV movies.. yeah I know I say I don’t watch it and I don’t, unless there is a movie on..

Passenger 57 (1992) – I used adore this movie when I was a teen, mostly due to the hot 90’s hair action going on, but it was one of the more talked about action films (on the playground)..  John Cutter (Westley Snipes) is a former police officer and now has the pleasure of escorting a terrorist Charles Rane (Bruce Payne) on his flight to the FBI, somehow, he takes over the plane and the two men have to physically and mentally psych each other out.

He is also experiencing deteriorating health which leads him to think he has a mental illness causing hallucinations. Lots of difficult scenes and powerful performances from the main cast. Shannon plays the part quite well as he generally looks like he’s dying from something. Along with the main character your dragged between believing in a real apocalypse or that Shannon’s mental health is at question which keeps the mini epic quite interesting.

T: Michael Shannon didn’t read up about mental illness before the movie as his character wouldnt have known about it. Q:
