 "You'll be hard-pressed to find a more exhilarating thrill ride."- Caroline Westbrook, Empire

"The plane - a hijacked flight of dangerous convicts - has so many criminal superstars on it, it's like a weirdo version of those comic books where the superheoes hold a summit." - Roger Ebert

Just-paroled army ranger Cameron Poe (Nicolas Cage) is headed back to his wife, but must fly home aboard a prison transport flight dubbed "Jailbird" with some of the worst criminal living. Along with Diamond Dog (Ving Rhames) and Baby-O (Mykelti Williamson), genius serial killer Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom (John Malkovich) unleashes a violent escape mid-flight. Secretly working with U.S. Marshall Vince Larkin (John Cusack), Poe tries to foil Grissom's plan. Part of CAGE MONTH on the Rooftop at FilmScene!
