Movie Reviews

27 years before 9/11
D3042 | Reston, VA United States | 06/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The story of Sam Byck is a laugh a minute until you see what he nearly accomplished. Bipolar and disgruntled, Sam Byck embarks upon a mission to hijack an airliner and fly it into the Nixon White House in retribution against the Small Business Administration. Their rejection of Byck's tire-peddling business, Byck Tires (pronounced bick, not bike), had pushed him over the edge. His plan is to use a gasoline bomb as a threat to seize control of commercial jet liner and fly it into the Executive Mansion -- 27 years before 9/11. Byck has to drive more than 100 miles to reach the airport at a time when the Arab Oil Embargo was creating lengthy gas lines everywhere, and he chooses to buy gasoline a gallon at a time. Byck finds the all gasoline he needs without waiting anywhere, and his spontaneous terror attack is disrupted only when fast-thinking security officers shoot out the tires -- of the jet. This is the chapter of the U.S. Presidency that may have driven Nixon to release all of the Wategate tapes. Release all the tapes, but distract history from the Plot to Kill Nixon.
