    Skyjacked (Full 1972 Movie) - BOMB ON PLANE. DIVERT TO ANCHORAGE
    ALASKA. NO JOKE NO TRICKS DEATHIts a scenario thats played out
    countless times before a madman hijacks an airliner and threatens
    the crew and passengers with a bomb if his demands are not met.
    Skyjacked, released in 1972, takes this idea and runs with it by
    placing an all-star cast at the mercy of a crazed Vietnam veteran
    who has a bone to pick with the U.S. Army. The result is an
    entertaining and technically competent film that, despite some
    shortcomings Ill discuss later, is sure to please genre
    fans.Skyjacked is a good movie but not a great one. Unlike the
    Airport series (The Concorde ... Airport 79 included), there isnt a
    whole lot of suspense to be had.It wallows in predictability and
    stereotype that, while fun to watch, dont really elevate it above
    the standard made-for-TV fare of the time. Thanks mostly to the
    presence of Charlton Heston and Josh Brolin and some great
    air-to-air footage of a World Airways 707. Its not a must-see, but
    its definitely an entertaining piece for the time. You wont be blown
    away but you wont be disappointed either.Although Skyjacked suffers
    from 70s kitsch, there are plenty of enjoyable elements. For one,
    Heston is unusually subdued here and doesnt ham it up as he was
    inclined to do in so many films. His macho screen presence makes you
    all the more aware of the lack of such leading men in todays film
    industry. The supporting cast doesnt rise to the level of other
    disaster films, but then again Skyjacked doesnt pretend to be more
    than it is an above average TV movie.
