Product Description

Product Description

Tense thriller starring Jodie Foster. Flying at 40,000 feet in a cavernous state-of-the-art 474 aircraft, Kyle Pratt (Foster) faces every mother's nightmare when her six-year-old daughter, Julia (Marlene Lawston), vanishes without a trace mid-flight from Berlin to New York. Already emotionally devastated by the 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.


If you can forgive plot holes that you could drive the airliner of your choice through the middle of, then Flightplan is an effective, pacey Hollywood thriller, that somehow manages to hold everything together in spite of its challenging plausibility.

Credit for that must go to its lead actress. In the hands of a lesser talent, this is just the kind of movie that could descend into obscurity. But Jodie Foster, as always, injects her character with a believability and a drive that’s hard to resist, and here is no different.

The plot sees her flying her late husband’s body back home on a commercial flight. As her and her six year old daughter settle down, Foster soon falls asleep, awaking to find no sign of her child, and no one who can even remember her being on the flight. Has someone taken her? Is it all in Foster’s mind? These are the questions the film circles, and for a good hour of its running time, it’s compelling Hollywood-style entertainment.

The cracks soon appear when you examine the film more closely though, and it’s as if Flightplan is just as aware of that as everyone else. The decision therefore to keep the film moving at a good pace is a wise one, leaving the viewer free to switch their brain off and just enjoy the ride, without querying too much the glabrous script that rarely makes as good use of the premise as you’d hope.

Yet the film still works. It may, after the credits have rolled, have failed to live up to its potential, and there’s a good hour of dissection waiting to happen afterwards. Yet, crucially, there’s also the best part of a couple of hours of good, solid entertainment in it for you too.--Jon Foster --This text refers to the DVD edition.

With the past plane outing, 'Red Eye' being quite a big hit, it seems that someone else is going to have a crack at the whole plane thing. And fortunatley, Flightplan too is also a great thriller. The film focuses on a woman who leaves on a trip to New York with her daughter on the newly designed plane, that has two stories, bars, lounges and the ability to travel extremley fast. Everything goes wrong when her daughter disappears on board and the crew deny that her daughter was ever on the plane. Fighting against everyone, she has to find the truth behind this mystery. Yes, the story line is reall far-fetched but if you stick with it, you will find it really enjoyable. The movie is really thrilling and has some great scenes and action but at points it is really witless. The centre of the movie is of course the come-back of Jodie Foster, who really propels this movie. Without her, Flightplan probably wouldn't be that great, but anyway it is really good and ends with an surprising twist that really was unexpected. Unlesss you are really against movies in planes or a really good thriller that doesn't fail to excite you should give it a watch and see what you think.

Flightplan is a movie that bears similarities to Jodie Fosters previous thriller "Panic Room" (2002). In both films, a woman uses courage and intelligence to defend her child against enemies who hold all the cards. However, whereas in Panic Room she knew who her enemies were, the problem she faces in "Flightplan" is more baffling because she no longer has her daughter, who apparently got lost on the flight while she fell asleep. But everything is not as it seems after the captain (Sean Bean) tells her that her child was never on board from the very start.
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.

Well, its definately better than i expected. But thats the beauty of non-hyped films like this that probably are not going to be great ultimatly... you can appreciate them a little more and it is 90 minutes of tense, entertaining fun. So why only 3 stars? Because after the amount of films i have seen over the years, i am beginning to realise that 3 stars isnt such a bad thing. this just isnt as good as alot of other movies. It mixes different syles throughout and although generating a huge plothole and general silliness towards the end, it is definately worth watching. Foster and Bean also earn thier paychecks and this makes you respect the film a bit more. Easily forgettable but this is pushing towards a higher mark rather than a lower one.

I note that the reviewers here have generally given this movie the elbow which is a shame really because overall its not all that bad. It helps if you don't know too much about the story in the first place and then you are likely to be spending a good part of the time trying to figure out just what is actually going on! The opening scenes had me believeing at first that this was a horror film what with flash backs and eery music. I do believe that the film could have possibly been more hard hitting as a horror theme rather than the thriller in which it has been cast. Nevertheless it is quite enjoyable if you dont set your sights too high (please excuse the pun which is intended!). Great acting from Jodie Foster as always but a bit of a surprise to see Sean Bean as the stressed and meak Captain. I wouldnt actually recommend this title as a purchase but would suggest that you could do far worse than hire this one. Give it a go!

To watch this film, you will have to leave disbelief at the door. There are far too many plot holes and plot contrivances for you to take this film seriously.
It is an entertaining piece of popcorn hokum however, that will more than keep you guessing.
Jodie Foster plays an increasingly distraught mother, whose daughter has supposedly gone missing on an airbourne flight. Foster, ever reliable, puts in a believable performance, but it's a role that she has done far too often. It's very similar to her role in Panic Room, and therefore doesn't feel much different.
Sean Bean is also notable as the plane's pilot - and for once, not stereotyped as the baddie. You can't help but love a film that Sean Bean is in!
But that doesn't make it brilliant. It starts off very slowly, and is a good half hour before they even set foot on the plane. Then the onboard antics of Foster shouting for her daughter start to get very werisome and boring.
The interesting plot idea is not fully carried out to it's potential, as it uses the same scenario over and over again: Foster looks somewhere for her daughter, cabin crew try to stop her, she looks anyway, daughter isn't there, Foster is sent to her seat, now repeat for the next hour.
It never really racks up the tension, and the longer you wait for the thrilling twist towards the end you wonder if Foster is deluded, or if it is actually happening. By the end, it doesn't really matter, because the pay off is weak, and disappointing, and you can't believe you sat through and hour and a half to get to that conclusion.
