Alex Cross Causes Security Concerns on a Plane
Alex Cross has a special place in our hearts because it was censored for a PG-13 in cinemas and never got its fair shot in form of an uncensored home video release. However, a family will probably never forget that this movie caused an emergency detour of their flight from Denver to Baltimore. It stopped in Chicago to dispose of the security risk "family with kids".
Even after the censorship, the film is still violent and surely nothing kids should watch. However, it was shown to every passenger on the United Airlines flight. According to the German tabloid Bild (yeah, we know...), the parents asked the personnel to shut off their monitors because they didn't want their kids to see the movie. Unfortunately, that didn't seem possible and even after a request to the pilot did not suffice, the parents decided to distract their children from the film screens. That's when the pilot allegedly decided that the family embodied a security risk and that a detour was the appropriate measure to get rid of them.
United Airlines defended the pilot's decision but announced that they'd check which films they show their passengers in the future.
