In this thriller, an airliner on a routine flight over the Pacific Ocean is hijacked by a gang of terrorists, who deliberately crash the plane into the water. As it turns out, the flight was not as routine as everyone imagined -- one of the passengers is carrying computer hardware that controls a key defense satellite, which can be used to launch America's nuclear arsenal. The terrorists are determined to steal the equipment and use it for their own sinister purposes, but a team of Navy SEALs is given the dangerous assignment of rescuing the airliner and its precious cargo before it's too late. Submerged stars Coolio, Nicole Eggert, Dennis Weaver, Fred Williamson, Brent Huff, and Maxwell Caulfield.
