Five teenage friends including rookie pilot Sara (Jessica Lowndes of 90210) rent a small plane for a weekend getaway. But shortly into the flight, something suddenly goes wrong. The instruments begin to malfunction. The plane won t stop climbing. A storm is closing in and fuel is running out. Now for everyone on board, the true horror has just begun: A mysterious force wants them all to die... and only one of them has the power to stop it. Julianna Guill (Friday The 13th), Ryan Donowho (Bandslam, The O.C.), Landon Liboiron (Degrassi: The Next Generation) and Jake Weary (As The World Turns) co-star in this white-knuckle shocker directed by award-winning graphic novelist Kaare Andrews (Spider-man: Reign) that takes the supernatural to terrifying new heights.

The story seems really like one of those described in "Outer Limits" series and even if at one moment things begin to look a little bit silly, ultimately everything is very cleverly explained and the solution is not stupid at all. There are some really scary moments and the dark storm cloud in which most of action takes place gives to this film a unique (and quite opressive) atmosphere. Last but not least, Jessica Lowndes is a very attractive young lady and she plays quite well.
The bad thing are the dialogs - they are really really poor. Other than Sara the "heroes" are rather pathetic and they act mostly stupidly. There is not much humor and many developments (not all) are quite predictable. And this film is definitely too long - cutting it down to 60 minutes would be a good thing.
All in all to my personal taste this is a little horror/SF film, to which I would rather give 2,5 stars if it was possible, as it is not very good. A thing to see once - and I would rent it rather than buy, as it may be hard to sell later.
Jessica Lowndes is good as Sara, Jake Weary is note perfect as jilted jock Sal, and Landon Liboiron is fascinating as Sara's mysteriously oddball boyfriend. Effort has been put into the script to make the characters feel like they have history with each other, and to write in some dramatic confrontations.
The storm effects and the feeling of claustrophobia and hopelessness have been managed quite well too. However the film feels like it never quite achieves the heights (sorry) it's reaching for. The mysterious monster is well realised and looks good, but never properly terrifying, its attacks feel somewhat predictable, and tension is missing from their attempts to escape it. The film never feels like it has the necessary peaks and troughs of panic and calm that make great horror moments work.
Lots has been done to raise tension (including several sequences that I'm reasonably sure would have crashed the plane in real life) but they never really surprise.
The climbing malfunction has also been shown incorrectly I believe, and if I remember the views in the film correctly, what the director shows is actually a fault that would've had the plane rolling up onto its back again and again, or stalling while trying to do so. It's a little thing, but when you base your whole plot on it, getting it wrong weakens the rest.
The reasons behind Altitude's mystery are obvious from very shortly into the film and faintly ludicrous (surely something similar would've happened before...? You'll get what I mean when you see it) and the ending feels contrived and overly convenient. I was left vaguely satisfied, but faintly disappointed at the same time.
