Factual error: The whole basis of the trial and conviction of Cameron Poe is a crock. The judge can not arbitrarily mete out a sentence that is harsher based on the ability of someone to defend him/herself. In justifying the harsher sentence because of Poe's military skills, the judge effectively says that Poe is more guilty than an average person due to his honorable and decorated service in uniform to his country. In my entire time in law school, I never read one out of the literally hundreds of cases I was assigned in which a judge issued a harsher sentence because of someone's innate or learned abilities to defend themselves. But since this was a movie court room proceeding, the fact that Poe had a witness to the fight (his wife), the fact that he was injured in the fight, and the fact that his uniform was torn and otherwise ruined as a result of the fight are never examined. A D.A. wouldn't have taken this to a grand jury on a bet, because they would have never returned an indictment or "true bill."
Cameron Poe has served seven years for the self-defense murder of drunken patron at a bar. On the day of his release, he catches the flight from hell, literally. On a flight with convicts that are being transported to a maximum security prison, Poe soon learns something's wrong, when there's a rebellion aboard his flight. With the convicts controlling the plane, Poe must find a way to save Guard Bishop, Baby-O, and himself, whilst trying to find a way home to his wife and daughter.
[Poe is looking out of the back of the plane at the DEA agent's car tethered to it, flapping about.]
Cameron Poe: On any other day, that might seem strange.
Trivia: The original plan for the ending of the movie was to crash the plane into the White House.
Question: Why is there a cache of weapons in the belly of the plane? Is there some reason in US Marshall rules?
