Former police officer John Cutter(Wesley Snipes) and international terrorist Charles Rane(Bruce Payne) engage in a prolonged fistfight 35,000 ft in the air. Just as the bad guy gets the upper hand the cabin door explodes outward, giving our hero a chance to gain the advantage with a few kidney punches. As Cutter and Rane continue to fight, they head closer to the open cabin door. Cutter gives Rane a couple kicks to the groin weakening his grip. A final kick to the face sends Rane through the door, where he falls a very long way to his death.
