Writer: Scott Rosenberg

Music: Mark Mancina; Trevor Rabin

Cameron Poe is a former US Ranger who had killed a man who was attacking Poe's pregnant wife. Paroled, he takes a prison transport flight home; on board are a pantheon of the worst sort of high-risk prisoners, all to be transferred to a new Supermax facility. What could go wrong? Good mindless summer blockbuster, nonstop action. Received Oscar nominations for Best Sound and Best Original Song, "How Do I Live."
