The thing i liked most about the film is that often in thrillers we think of obvious questions that the characters should be asking, but do not, because then the problems would be solved and the movie would be over. In "Flightplan," Foster's character asks all the right questions, and plays the situation subtly and with cunning: She knows that once she crosses a line, she will no longer be able to help her daughter.
The movie's excellence comes from Foster's performance as a resourceful and brave woman; from Bean, Sarsgaard and the members of the cabin crew, all with varying degrees of doubt; and from the direction by Robert Schwentke, a German whose first two films were not big hits but this one deserves to be. Highly recommended to those who enjoyed panic room or just enjoy thrillers with twists in general.
