Overview

John Guileran's Skyjacked wasn't taken too seriously, even when it was released in 1972, and since then Charlton Heston's wooden acting style has become such an object of parody and ridicule, that it has truly earned a place for itself in Warner Home Video's "Cult Camp Classics" series. The movie has been transferred in its proper Panavision (2.35-to-1) aspect ratio; and the audio is full bodied as well, if not quite as loud as it ought to be under ideal circumstances. The movie has been given 26 chapter markers, which is more than it deserves, given its relatively simple plot, stock characters, and most of the performances. The menu opens automatically on start-up, and is simpler than most, given the absence of even a trailer as a bonus feature. Warner Home Video has issued it separately, and also folded it in with two much more interesting and entertaining movies, Zero Hour! and Hot Rods To Hell in one volume of its Cult Camp Classics series.
