Air Rage is a 2001 action-thriller movie directed by Fred Olen Ray and starring Ice-T, Cyril O'Reilly, Kimberly Oja, and Steve Hytner. The story revolves around a group of terrorists who hijack a Boeing 747 en route from New York to Los Angeles, putting the lives of passengers and crew members at risk. The movie begins with a group of terrorists who plan to hijack a 747 flying from New York to Los Angeles. The leader of the group is a powerful businessman named Raymond Stone, played by Ice-T, who has hired a team of highly skilled mercenaries to carry out the plan. The team includes Nick Watts, an ex-soldier played by Cyril O'Reilly, and a group of men with various criminal backgrounds.

Onboard the flight, passengers include sports journalist Jack Tyree, played by Steve Hytner, and flight attendant Jessica, portrayed by Kimberly Oja, who have a romantic history together. As the flight takes off, the terrorists reveal their true intentions, and the chaos begins.

The team of terrorists kills several passengers and crew members and uses violence to take control of the plane. They threaten to blow up the plane if their demands are not met. Raymond Stone demands the release of his brother, who is in jail for a crime he did not commit.

Meanwhile, the remaining passengers and crew members, including Jack and Jessica, plot to take down the terrorists and regain control of the plane. Jack, who is a trained fighter, uses his skills to fight off the terrorists, while Jessica uses her knowledge of the plane to help the passengers escape.

The rest of the movie is a tense and action-filled struggle between the terrorists and the passengers. The passengers try to outsmart the terrorists while the terrorists try to maintain control of the plane. The stakes are raised when the terrorists reveal they have a nuclear bomb on board, and the passengers have to find a way to defuse it before it detonates.

One of the most notable aspects of the movie is the performance of Ice-T, who plays the villainous Raymond Stone. He is menacing and intimidating, and his portrayal of the character adds a layer of complexity to the movie. Cyril O'Reilly also delivers a strong performance as Nick Watts, a conflicted character who starts to question his loyalty to the terrorists.

The action scenes in the movie are well-executed and keep the tension high throughout. The hijacking itself is intense and violent, and the fight scenes between the passengers and the terrorists provide plenty of thrilling moments. The movie also uses practical effects, which add to the realism of the action sequences.

Overall, Air Rage is a solid action-thriller with a talented cast and plenty of suspenseful moments. While it may not break much new ground in terms of its plot, the movie is a competent and enjoyable addition to the genre. Fans of action movies and thrillers should find plenty to enjoy in this high-flying adventure.

Air Rage is a 2001 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.2.
