James Cameron be writing his screenplay like "so the fighter jet hovers under the crane, and he asks his daughter to jump onto the plane" and then he actually films it. Must be a nice job.

Set years before 9/11 when Hollywood could still joke about terrorism, this masterpiece of a 90's action flick elevates itself way over its French source material, without forgetting to pay tribute to it. After Aliens, The Abyss and T2, it marks the end of James Cameron's nuclear warhead tetralogy, and a turning point into his insane budget and profit ascent, paving the way for his further titanic projects.
