Before Its Time

The 1996 movie "Executive Decision" is playing a lot on cable these days. I think the flick is really, really good. I actually saw it in the theater when it first came out (with a date that turned out to be a little crazy, but that's a different, perhaps better, story). But the movie was soooooo ahead of its time. Its plot involves terrorists hijacking a commercial airliner with the intent to use it as a weapon against the United States. It even had a land based suicide bombing in its opening scenes. Creepy, good stuff.
