Movie Review - Flight Plan

Yeah, I was bored, two movies in two days.

"Flying at 40,000 feet in a cavernous, state-of-the-art 474 aircraft, Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster) faces every mother's worst nightmare when her six-year-old daughter, Julia, vanishes without a trace mid-flight from Berlin to New York. Already emotionally devastated by the unexpected death of her husband, Kyle desperately struggles to prove her sanity to the disbelieving flight crew and passengers while facing the very real possibility that she may be losing her mind. While neither Captain Rich (Sean Bean) nor Air Marshall Gene Carson (Peter Sarsgaard) want to doubt the bereaved widow, all evidence indicates that her daughter was never on board resulting in paranoia and doubt among the passengers and crew of the plane. Finding herself desperately alone, Kyle can only rely on her own wits to solve the mystery and save her daughter."

Jodie did a very good job from making people believe that she really lost her daughter on the plane till she's psychotic disorder widow. At one time I feel like feeding the woman with drugs to make her sleep. Talk about fear of flying, the tension build up was good in the first hour, but too bad the ending, sort of fall down in flames. It is fun to see how people react to the situation, the captain, the flight crew, and the passengers, very sarcastic. Looks like everyone has a little craziness in them.

I like the part where they dissect the whole plane. You can almost see how the whole plane looks like, places that you won't have the chance to visit especially after 911. The huge plane did give me a feeling of one might lost more than just a PDA, may be your virginity mother in law. It's kinda wasted as the story is quite good, just the twist at the end spoils it. Despite the illogical plots and the bad landing which spoils the whole film, with Jodie you'll still have a fun and entertaining departure. By the way, she has a pair of beautiful blue eyes too :)

Overall, the not so intense thriller is still a worthy watch. I'll give 6/10.
