    "Here goes nothing"

    Hello,

    I was watching a movie and there was a sentence: "Here goes nothing."

    I don't remember the name of the moview now, but
    the situation was that a plane had been hijacked and they locked up everyone in the luggage compartment. But one air hostess escapes their attention. A rescue team boards the plane (through a modified Blackbird!!)
    but everyone except one of them gets killed. Then that one remaining rescue
    team member, who is injured, tells the air hostess to go up the deck and kill the hijackers and falls unconscious. That time, she braces herself with the gun and says "Here goes nothing". What does it mean?

    Thank you.

    Probably "I have nothing to lose by taking this action".
