Farcical, so many plot holes! (Careful, spoilers!)
Verified purchase
Are we honestly expected to believe that no one else saw the child? That the bad guy knew the mother would keep her hidden and that the child would be complicit? That the convoluted plot was the best way to make money? That after threatening lives she would be able just to walk off the plane without being surrounded by lots of heavies pointing guns at her? That even though an aeronautical engineer she knows the plane inside out, including which plug-ins to switch to bring the masks down? That after her daughter had obviously been drugged to make her sleep, she was just left to wake normally rather than being surrounded by medics? And many, many more.

Toy Story is more believable.

doesnt make sense
Verified purchase
Dvd arrived no problemmo. The film has one gaping error. Couldnt they just review her entering the plane with her daughter in the airport. Most of the film is spent with them apparently believing her/not believing her and its all completely solvable with a quick glance at airport security tapes. The gaping logic gap ruined the film for me but theres some lovely twists thatll entertain you

Extra corn at the end.

How could everyone of the passengers not see a six year old? How could the hijackers possibly know or even expect or anticipate not a single passenger would see a six year old? Why look inside a coffin which is strapped to secure it to a pallet? And, if you did look inside a coffin, strapped to a pallet, why not open all the containers and all the suitcases?

UN-NERVING RIVETING AIRBORNE DRAMA!
Verified purchase
Jodie Foster gives yet another stunning performance in this nail-biting thriller. The tension is racked up right through to the last minute in this seemingly impossible tale of a lost child on an aircraft.....
The supporting cast are excellent but Foster delivers the central rôle with entire believability and her frustration is emotionally brilliant proving once again she is an actor of remarkable talent.
Even if you’ve seen it before, one is never quite prepared for the denouement.....
(Great value-for-money)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

pulling the curtains back on flight mayhem
Verified purchase
Jodie Foster carries this film with able support from Peter Sarsgaard, Sean Bean, Greta Scacchi and others ... it is a tense ride that you don't want to know too much about so that it has its full impact. Perhaps just to know that it is about a woman whose child mysteriously vanishes on a flight, where realistically there's nowhere to vanish to ... The idea had been worked with a much lighter tone in Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes, but here it is very edgy and sombre. Shot in winter, largely at night and in blue-black tones, it is mainly confined to the aircraft, and tightens the screws more and more ... the plot is quite tense, and the acting brilliant from what seems an unusual cast, plucked from the sky. Foster has more than a touch of superwoman by the end.

No Apology!
Verified purchase
The captain had the courtesy to apologise to the lady even though she caused the captain a lot of grief.
Why didn't she have the decency to apologise profusely to the Arab man after her false accusations and a whole made up story that could have got him arrested or killed.
She had a chance when kindly picked up her bag, so what made her exempt?
Very unfortunate!

Great Tense Thriller
Verified purchase
I have seen parts of this film a few times on TV, but never actually managed to sit down and watch the whole thing from start to finish, so I eventually took the plunge and bought it on DVD. It is a very good film, anyone that liked Panic Room or is into tense Thrillers will love this film!

There are a few extras on the disc but to be honest, I’m not really into looking through the extras unless there is something that sounds really interested (see Momento, the whole film is played backwards, however there is an extra to watch it the right way around, which makes for a good film in its own), so I can’t comment too much on how good/bad the extras are.

I would imagine the Blu-ray copy to be out soon and may consider buying that to replace my DVD copy at some point in the future if there is a big enough improvement in quality (some older films are only marginally better on Blu-ray than DVD, so not worth the premium for Blu-ray).

Good movie with a twist
Verified purchase
Good movie, great plot about a little girl who was abducted during a flight home from Berlin to New York. The distraught mother does everything she can to find her daughter. The plot has many twists and turns (no spoiler alert here!) The finally is another surprise you would never expect. However, the ending was a little abrupt, I would have liked to have seen the aftermath after they had returned home, a slight disappointment on an otherwise great movie.
